BMR Energy gets to work on third solar project in U.S. Virgin Islands

Logistics Node Ocean Point Terminals (OPT) will turn to BMR energy to build a 10 MW solar project at its terminal in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. The facility will generate and supply power to OPT’s maritime logistics terminal and storage and mixing complex, in accordance with a 20-year lease and operation and maintenance agreement.

The facility will be located on a site opposite OPT’s Administration Building and adjacent to a residential area owned by OPT, and construction is expected to begin in Q4 2022. The project will significantly reduce OPT’s operating costs and emissions and clean renewable energy in the US Virgin Islands.

“We have worked closely with BMR to design a solution that will meet our energy requirements, lower our energy costs, reduce our carbon footprint and help maintain our competitive position as the largest terminal, storage and blending facility in the Caribbean,” said Todd Dillabough, CEO of Ocean Point Terminals. “The project is well on its way to begin construction this year and be in commercial use in early 2023.”

Designed with reinforced scaffolding, foundations and module connection systems, the project will withstand wind speeds of up to 180 mph.

“This is a unique opportunity to strengthen our commitment to the US Virgin Islands and continue to diversify its energy resources with one of the area’s premier companies and employers,” said Bruce Levy, CEO of BMR Energy.

This will be BMR Energy’s third solar project in the US Virgin Islands. BMR Energy also provides clean, renewable electricity through its 6.4 MW solar farm in Donoe, St. Thomas, and its 5 MW solar farm in Spanish Town, St. Croix.
