The objective of the Tinian Power Plant was to finance, design, procure, construct and then operate and maintain a fully integrated power generation facility for the client. This project consists of all facilities necessary to implement and construct a fully operational 20 MW power plant facility, which is expandable to 30MW. The project work included planning, design, supply construction, installation, testing and commissioning. The facility consists of a main power plant building with all utility and support systems and housing the main 4×2.5 MW and 2×5 MW diesel fired engines.

Pernix provided full Build-Own-Operate-Transfer services for this project, where we were responsible for financing, building, operating and later transferring ownership to the client. The project implementation included provisions to meet the requirements of the administrative and operations staff with suitable offices, meeting rooms and rest rooms in this building. The facility also houses the offices of Commonwealth Utilities Corporation.
