Defense Agencies Seek Electrical Power from Biomass


On December 12, 2012, the Defense Logistics Agency Energy (DLA-E), in close coordination with the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force (EITF), released a Request for Proposal (RFP) for electrical power from a biomass generation facility for up to 28 megawatts located on or contiguous to Fort Drum in Watertown, New York.  The Solicitation, SP0600-13-R-0401, is posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website.

This is an open RFP for the Army to procure power through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for bids up to 25 years for renewable energy to be purchased by Fort Drum.  Under the PPA, the Army will only purchase the energy that is produced; no generation assets will be acquired. The selected contractor will finance, design, build, operate, own, and maintain the energy plants.  All interested companies are encouraged to prepare a response to the solicitation, which closes on March 15, 2013.

A pre-proposal conference will be held in early 2013. This event will provide participants with a better understanding of the general procurement process and specific contract considerations, so they may provide a more comprehensive proposal addressing the Army’s requirements. This event will also include a tour of the potential site. Details about the pre-proposal conference will be posted on the EITF website in the next few weeks.
