CUC extends RPF deadline for engine 8 replacement

THE Commonwealth Utilities Corp. has extended the deadline for submission of proposals for the replacement of engine 8 at Power Plant 1, CUC Executive Director Gary Camacho said.

The request for proposals or RFP period was supposed to have ended on Oct. 29, but it was extended until today, Nov. 16, Friday.

“Due to the impact of [Typhoon Yutu] we were unable to communicate with the proposers,” Camacho told Variety.

He said the Office of the Attorney General, a contracting specialist, CUC’s chief legal counsel, power plant manager and project coordinator are working to ensure transparency in the RFP process.

He reiterated that CUC has the funds for the acquisition of  new engines to produce an additional 19 megawatts of power.
