Solar power facility process moves forward

An open call has been issued to prequalify companies seeking to participate in the tender process to build a solar power facility on land adjacent to L.F. Wade International Airport.

The Bermuda Government is seeking a six megawatt AC solar power photovoltaic plant on the peninsula known as the “Finger.”

The land is owned by the government.

In a statement, the government said: “Solar photovoltaic technology is an important component in the future development of Bermuda's electricity sector.

“The technical criteria that must be met for companies to be eligible to participate in the tender process include a track record in successful solar project development of at least 10MW of cumulative capacity, with at least one successful installation of 3MW or more on a single site anywhere in the world.

“The financial qualification criteria include the submission of three years of audited financial statements showing positive net worth and profits for each of the three years.”

The tender process, which is scheduled to commence during the autumn, is expected to establish the optimal price of solar power for this project through competitive bidding.

Additional details about the project and the RFQ documents themselves can be found on the project website: https://www.gov.bm/procurement/development-utility-scale-solar-pv-bermuda
