 Weston Solutions, Inc. (Weston) has won a second task order under its United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Omaha Rapid Disaster Infrastructure (RDI) contract to supply temporary power generation at the San Juan Power Plant in San Juan, Puerto Rico in support of its overall mission to stabilize the electrical grid on the island. The temporary generators are expected to enable maintenance and repair work on Puerto Rico’s power system and energy grid. The task order totals $522,837,996 over an 8-month period of performance.

After Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017 and Hurricane Fiona in 2022, it became clear that Puerto Rico’s power generation, distribution and transmission was in a precarious state. In response, a presidential declaration was issued September 18, 2022. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) tasked USACE with adding 200 Megawatts (MW) of power at the San Juan Power plant to mitigate the threat.

After a competitive process, USACE selected Weston as their contractor.

“Weston is proud to support USACE Omaha and the Puerto Rico Power System Stabilization Task Force team on this important mission,” said Weston Vice President and Client Sector Leader, Chris Henry.

In combination with the funds awarded for temporary power generation at the Palo Seco Power Plant in March 2023, nearly $1 billion has been awarded for the delivery of critical services by Weston. Our team includes NFE Power PR LLC and NFEnergía LLC, subsidiaries of New Fortress Energy Inc., for the installation and operations of 200 MW of dual-fuel generators as well as the supply of natural gas.
