The Kaua’i Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) has executed a contract for design, engineering and construction services for the West Kaua'i Energy Project in Hawaii with EPC contractor McMillen Jacobs Associates.

This contract award follows a comprehensive request for proposal (RFP) process that began in November 2017.

The West Kaua'i Energy Project will use solar photovoltaic (PV) energy and pumped storage hydro technology to provide dispatchable renewable energy and is expected to provide up to 15% of Kaua'i's energy needs.

Previous reports indicate that the project (also called the Puu Opae Energy Project) will use the Puu Opae upper reservoir connected by a 5-mile-long buried steel pipeline to the Mana reservoir. During the day, solar power would be used to pump the water uphill. The facility could have a capacity up to 25 MW.

“This is a substantial investment for our cooperative, and we have great confidence that McMillen Jacobs can deliver the range of services needed for engineering, design and construction," said KIUC's President and Chief Executive Officer David Bissell.

KIUC has been in active development for the project since 2014. The first phase of the contract will involve finalizing project design. Bissell expects to have 60% engineering complete by mid-2019. He added that environmental studies are in progress and a draft environmental disclosure document is anticipated to be ready for public release in early 2019.
