NAD Exploring Solar Energy for Airport23 Aug 2017

NAD is considering a solar power plant for LPIA

The Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) is exploring the development of a solar power plant for Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA). The company recently released a request for information (RFI) from companies interested in constructing the plant.

NAD Hopes to Achieve Energy Security

NAD said it is considering the solar power grid for its operations so that it can “achieve a high standard of excellence and customer service and to achieve energy security and reliability at LPIA”.

The airport is looking to provide a contract for a solar energy plant with battery storage, and is “seeking proponents (experienced consortium or joint venture) to design, build and operate” the plant.

Details are Contained in NAD’s Request for Information

According to the RFI, NAD’s initiative comprises, but is not limited to, “solar energy technology and battery solution options; project site location for delivery to or within the LPIA electrical power grid; expected charge on demand for generation facilities responsive to this request for information; market pricing for energy and capacity and all generation related services; level of experience of market participants in developing and selling renewable energy; respondents’ affirmation of interest in selling renewable energy to LPIA under a power purchase agreement (PPA) based on a build-own-operate- transfer (BOOT) contract.”
