Will the project be financially viable?
Yes. The financial evaluations conducted by staff indicate that the project results will exceed the Port’s financial goals. Using the fuel volumes from the Washington State University Market Study, the Port Finance Director estimates an internal rate of return exceeding 6% in each of the three volume sales scenarios (Low, Most Likely, High). At a 6% rate of return, the project will pay for itself and will qualify for bank financing if necessary.
