"WEST KINGSTON POWER PARTNERS (WKPP) 65MW POWER PLANT", is Jamaica Energy Partners (JEP) latest project which consists of the construction and commissioning of a land-based, 65MW Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) Power Plant in the West Kingston area.
With the addition of this 65MW generating capacity, JEP's total generating capacity will be increased to approximately 184MW making it one of the major suppliers of electricity in Jamaica.
JEP is now in the final stages of construction with delivery slated for the second quarter of 2012. The project site is located along Marcus Garvey Drive on what is known as the Hunts Bay lands, just east of Universal Freight Handlers. The site is bordered to the north by the old Western Wastewater Treatment Facility, east of Seprod Jamaica Limited and west of the minor road, Industrial Terrace.
