Army Corps of Engineers Solicits Bids for Redstone Arsenal CHP Energy Project

PowerPlantThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has started to accept bids from private companies to build, finance and operate a 25-megawatt combined heat and power generation facility at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama.

USACE said Friday the Army will procure renewable energy from the contractor-run cogeneration plant through a power purchase agreement spanning up to 30 years.

The branch could issue an intent to award notice for the proposed Redstone Arsenal CHP system via the FedBizOpps website in summer 2015.

USACE’s Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville manages the energy development program in collaboration with the Army Office of Energy Initiatives.

The Army expects the program to help the service reach it goal of obtaining at least 1 gigawatt of electricity from renewable sources by 2025.
