THE Commonwealth Utilities Corp. has sent a six-member team to Tinian to assess the island’s power plant, CUC Executive Director Gary Camacho said.

The assessment began on Wednesday in preparation for the end of the 20-year contract of Telesource, which operates the Tinian power plant.

“The intention is to determine the condition of the facility so we can document it and include in the IFB [Invitation for Bid],” Camacho said.

The CUC team is collaborating with the Guam Power Authority in the assessment effort on Tinian, he added.

The Telesource contract will expire on March 31 this year, but it can participate in the bidding process.

During the CUC board meeting on Thursday, Camacho recommended a 20-year contract for whoever will be selected as the new operator of the Tinian power plant.

He said based on the assessment of the facility on Tinian, CUC may come up with a power plant model that incorporates renewable energy.
