Jamaica will start building a 94-MW combined heat and power plant on 1 December, according to local press.

The plant, which will be sited in the Clarendon area and will be fed by LNG imports, will take approximately 24 months to build and is scheduled to be connected to the country’s grid in December 2019.

New York-based private equity giant New Fortress Energy is overseeing both exports and imports of LNG in Jamaica.
