In March 2019, Jamaica Energy Partners (JEP) acquired Jamaica Private Power Company (JPPC). JPPC is a 60MW power plant located in Rockfort, Kingston. It is also an Independent Power Provider (IPP) that utilises slow-speed diesel generators and HFO to produce electricity for sale to the grid. JPPC produces and sells electricity to the grid at one of the most cost-effective and affordable rates in Jamaica.
For over 20 years, we've attributed our success to the promotion of operational efficiency, safety, and the hard work and dedication of our employees. Our parent company, JEP, is currently the largest Independent Power Producer (IPP) in Jamaica. JEP owns and operates two power barges, Doctor Bird I and Doctor Bird II, with outputs of 74.2 MW and 50.2 MW, respectively.
Doctor Bird II's generating capacity was added in March 2006, and this barge is located approximately 300 yards from the original. Doctor Bird Power Station JEPs affiliate company, West Kingston Power Partners (WKPP), is a land-based, 65.5 MW Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) power plant located in the Western Kingston area.
