New York looks for port investment opportunities

Ports and terminals in New York have been invited to submit proposals if they are interested in upgrading and investing in facilities that would support the state’s burgeoning offshore wind energy industry.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), Empire State Development (ESD), and the New York Department of Transportation (DOT) issued requests for qualification (RFQL) from port operators and market participants as the first step in what will be competitive solicitation in 2020.

The RFQL is part of a two-phase process through which New York seeks to pre-qualify and then competitively select proposals for public-private investment opportunities in port infrastructure.

Only those proposers who are pre-qualified under this RFQL will be eligible to participate in a subsequent competitive solicitation for up to USD200 million to be issued in 2020.

To be eligible, proposers must identify at least one port facility and describe the current level of site control or ability to obtain site control, and will be evaluated based on the demonstrated value and viability of the project. Interested proposers can apply here.
