Cruise Berthing Facility
The Cayman Islands’ Government is considering the prospect of constructing a two pier cruise berthing facility in George Town. The Government commissioned Mott Macdonald to prepare Terms of Reference for an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of the proposed project, with the EIA being carried out by a consortium of consultants led by Baird & Associates and Smith Warner International. The EIA was completed in 2015 and the Final Environmental Statement published in September 2015. The Terms of Reference and Final ES can be found below.
The Government’s Environmental Assessment Board confirms that the Terms of Reference for the ReGen project (formerly the Integrated Solid Waste Management System) have now been finalised after a period of public consultation and three public meetings. The Terms of Reference explain the guidelines and scope for the studies which will be done as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
OTEC International LLC is undertaking an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for its planned installation of 25 megawatts (MWe) of phased Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) development to be located adjacent to the north coast of Grand Cayman (GC). OTI proposes that the first phase would be 6.25MW on a floating power platform. An Environmental Assessment Board (EAB) was convened from within government and statutory authorities to assist the Cayman Islands Government (CIG) in its evaluation of the environmental effects and mitigating provisions to be incorporated into the OTI design. Terms of Reference for the EIA were finalised in November 2014 and can be found below
