Army Corps awards $35.1M contract to restore power grid in Puerto Rico

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $35.1 million contract to Pennsylvania-based Weston Solutions Inc. to provide a 50-MW generator at the Palo Seco facility, which is one of the main power providers of San Juan, Puerto Rico. This marks the first of a series of major contracts to repair the power grid destroyed by Hurricane Maria, according to an Oct. 9 company release.

The 50-MW generator will provide emergency generation capacity to the power plant to benefit more customers while the nearby transmission lines are being repaired. Additional contracts are expected to be announced in the following days and weeks.

To maximize efforts in restoring the grid, the Army Corps is partnering with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
