IMCA Jamaica Limited, the sole Caterpillar Dealer in the territory has been in partnership with the Jamaica Public Service since 2017 to develop “The Nest” Project, a US$16M investment, supplying five (5) 2-Megawatt liquid natural gas (LNG) generator sets which generate 10-Megawatt power.
The 10-Megawatt power plant, which is fuelled by liquid natural gas supplied by New Fortress Energy, was commissioned in August 2021.
“The Nest” is an expansive manufacturing and agro complex in the hills of St. Catherine Jamaica, owned by the poultry company Caribbean Broilers, which trades as CB Group.
In this tripartite deal, JPS developed and operates the combined heat and power plant which provides heat energy to Caribbean Broilers that feeds the poultry producer with electricity. IMCA provides support through parts and services in order to maintain uptime of the combined heat and power plant. This has resulted in a 30% lower carbon footprint, “free” heat energy that the customer can use in the production process. In addition, LNG is a cheaper form of fuel when compared to diesel, bunker-C or gasoline, thus allowing for a reduced cost in energy production.
IMCA Jamaica is a proud partner of JPS and continues to support the power company’s green electricity supply.
