Fregate Island, Seychelles
The Issue: Managing a luxury resort’s unsustainable carbon footprint versus guest expectations.
The Smart Solution: State-of-the-art, fuel-efficient generators were installed to power the island as well as a wastewater plant that converts wastewater to 95 percent pure usable water for irrigation. Golf carts are powered by hybrid technology, and speedboats by new Cummins ultra-fuel-saving engines. LED and CFC lighting have been installed throughout the property.
