As a resort community, they didn’t have the luxury of shutting down just to switch power sources. The new solution had to fit within the development’s high-end aesthetics and minimize disruption to the community before, during, and after installation. Safety was key. Additionally, with a pristine ocean-front location, securing required permitting meant minimizing environmental impact; the resort also sought to ensure the ability to integrate with renewable energy sources.
The resort considered diesel and propane, but instead chose to partner with New Fortress Energy (NFE) for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) solution. NFE’s fast-track, turnkey, safe solution, allowed the resort to continue exploring the possibility of eventually connecting to the grid or integrating with renewables.
NFE engaged with the resort’s senior staff and power plant operator to create a custom, full-service, fully financed energy solution that met all of their needs:
- Modular and adaptable: To keep investment costs low, NFE provided a modular solution consisting of a vaporizer and LNG storage containers that provided enough storage to weather any storms.
- Community-friendly: This compact solution avoided creating an eyesore and minimized disruption to the community, with ample onsite storage to avoid constant truck traffic within the development.
- End-to-end management: NFE worked with the resort to identify land near the generators, then managed all permitting and construction, and trained the resort’s staff on the new equipment to ensure a seamless transition.
