Powering up Oahu's electricity

The $383 million coal-fired plant is capable of supplying more than 189 megawatts of electricity, about 20 percent of Oahu's needs.

"We've had a good year, as far as availability is concerned and we want to continue to improve our operating efficiency," Pierce said.

He has been with AES Corp. for 10 years, and most recently was operations superintendent of AES Thames, Inc. in Connecticut. Pierce also worked eight years with the Energy Transportation Corp., based in New York. Pierce earned a bachelor's degree in marine engineering from the Maine Maritime Academy in Castline, Maine.
