IAP Wins Honduras Power Plant Contract
Cape Canaveral, FL – IAP Worldwide Services, Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a contract under the Mobile Alabama Corps of Engineers to provide Operations and Maintenance (O&M) for the power plant at the Joint Task Force Bravo base located at Soto Cano, Honduras. The contract has a three-year period of performance beginning June 2, 2015, with a total potential value of approximately $9 million.
IAP will be responsible for the entire O&M package and the primary electrical distribution that powers the U.S. side of Soto Cano AFB, including maintenance and repairs to the generators and the existing Medium and High Voltage (MV-HV) electrical systems. The project consists of seven personnel and five generators with a capacity total of 7MW and the Primary electrical distribution substation. IAP will subcontract much of the contract’s efforts to local companies with oversight from IAP’s Program Management offices in Cape Canaveral and Panama City, Florida.
“We are pleased to have this opportunity to bring IAP’s global power solutions to the U.S. Southern Command (SouthCom) and establish our footprint in this important geographical region of the world. SouthCom encompasses 31 countries and 15 areas of special sovereignty,” said Rick Nohmer, IAP Vice President of Operations. “We will begin moving demobilized power units from Afghanistan that we’ve stored in our Dubai warehouse facility into Honduras this month in preparation for the exchange of power equipment located on the air base.”
For more than a decade, IAP has provided power services in austere environments and remote locations on military, diplomatic, and humanitarian missions. A premier power solutions provider, IAP has delivered, installed, operated and maintained 58 power plants throughout the world, totaling approximately 600 MW of installed power units.
Soto Cano Air Base (commonly known as Palmerola Air Base) is located to the south of Comayagua in Honduras. It houses several hundred U.S. troops and is the home of the Honduran Air Force Academy and headquarters for the U.S. military’s Joint Task Force Bravo (JTF-B). The U.S. military uses Soto Cano as a launching point for counter drug missions in Central America as well as humanitarian aid missions throughout Honduras and Central America.
