The second stage of the Request for Proposal (RFP) component for the ‘Green Bartica Plan’ has begun. This is according to the Ministry of Public Infrastructure. Assisting the Ministry in this leg of the RFP were the Hinterland Electrification Company Inc. and the Guyana Energy Agency.
The first component of the RFP occurred in February. Those proposals particularly looked at the use of solar energy. Proposals during the second stage will focus on wind energy, hydropower energy, biomass, waste-to-energy and tidal energy.
Two companies have submitted tenders for this stage of the project as Independent Power Producers (IPP). They are SelvaGlobal of the United Kingdom and GP Energy Ltd. of Trinidad and Tobago.
When the entire process is completed, a shortlist of qualified firms will be created. These firms will be asked to submit a full comprehensive proposal. The selected company will be tasked to design and develop a power generation scheme which is powered by renewable energy sources.
It is the intention that the relevant technology will be employed under a Build Own Operate and Transfer (BOOT) system to supply power to the Bartica grid.
According to the Ministry, the objectives of the project is ultimately to reduce Guyana’s carbon footprint in power generation, agriculture, transport, tourism, construction, waste, manufacturing and other sectors.
Currently, the Guyana Power and Light supplies power to the Town. The power supply is currently produced from diesel-powered thermal generators. Bartica consumes approximately 11,760 MWh annually. The peak demand in Bartica is 1.8MW as of December 2015.
The facility which the Ministry wishes to have set up should produce at least 2,140 MWH of energy per annum.
