Request for Proposals!

Thank you for your continued interest in working with us to deliver a successful community-scale biomass energy project in California. This project represents an exciting opportunity to reduce wildfire risk in one of California’s most threatened communities while simultaneously creating rural jobs and providing renewable energy.


We are requesting a proposal for preliminary design services for a 5 MW (gross) steam combustion installation near Camptonville, California. While there are several remaining items to be clarified, a contract for final design services is expected to be awarded for this project in the third quarter of 2020, with equipment procurement expected to begin shortly thereafter.

We kindly request that the following items be included in your response to this RFP:


1) Preliminary non-binding cost estimate for a turnkey 5MW (gross) biomass boiler/steam turbine generation system that excludes Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) pollution control equipment and a water cooling system (to be provided by others);


2) Bid for scope of a Limited Notice to Proceed (LNTP) to provide preliminary engineering drawings and calculations that would be used to prepare the project for a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract to deliver the facility, subject to certain minimum deliverables requirements as enumerated below. The successful bidder will integrate the drawings provided by the previously selected vendors of the two subsystems for pollution control and cooling.


The goal of this RFP is to understand your potential scope of supply and non-binding price estimate for Engineering, Equipment, Materials, Installation, and Commissioning support and the associated costs for a fully functional 5MW gross biomass-fired steam turbine power generation facility.


Please review or pass long attached information to interested parties!
