Third place bidder keeping a close watch on 381MW project

Published:Monday | May 5, 2014

Energise Jamaica, the third ranked bidder in the 381 megawatt project, is reportedly keeping a close watch that no further extension is given to EWI.

A source close to Energise Jamaica yesterday insisted that the local company should be selected if EWI’s bid falls through and hinted at possible legal action to ensure that this happens.

The energy project was offered to EWI after the first-place bidder, Azurest Cambridge, failed to pay its US$6.8 million security bond.

And according to the source this precedence clearly dictates what procedures should be followed.

Energise Jamaica has proposed to deliver Liquefied Natural Gas-generated electricity to the Jamaica Public Service at US16¢ per kilowatt.

The company also says it has all the financing in place to undertake the project.
