Despite the global pandemic, NFE was able to transition the site to a more reliable, more affordable, and more environmentally friendly energy source, liquefied natural gas (LNG) – on-time, and under budget(1). NFE is supplying all the equipment for gas and power, as well as the LNG needed to fuel the facility. Talk about positive energy!
In October 2020, NFE completed the full switchover to the LNG-fueled plant, and now RAV Bahamas acts as a private power provider to the resort and casino, its facilities, homes, and private villas on the property. Through this new operation, ISO tanks are filled at NFE’s plant in Miami, Florida, then shipped to the island, where NFE’s fast, reliable logistics experts keep the energy flowing.
The onsite power generation capacity is roughly nine megawatts (seven megawatts from LNG, and an additional two megawatts of diesel backup). In addition to reducing fuel costs by 29 percent, the site has also reduced its carbon footprint by about 27 percent(2).
