Jamaica Coast

Nameplate Capacity

In 2017, the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica was awarded an approximately $875,000 grant from the U.S Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to develop a technical and economic feasibility study and implementation plan for a utility-scale offshore wind farm off the coast of Jamaica. This study provided export opportunities for U.S suppliers. Keystone served as the prime contractor for the effort. The work scope included a detailed supply chain, infrastructure development plan and logistical study for the construction of the wind farm. The study also included creating a U.S supplier survey and register of U.S companies interested in exporting offshore wind-related products and services, as well as an estimation of the potential export value to U.S companies. The Terms of Reference (TOR) included the following: wind resource assessment, site selection study, wind turbine generator selection, foundation concept design study, logistics study for component delivery, local supply chain and infrastructure assessment, installation/implementation planning, U.S. supply chain-supplier identification and register, stakeholder engagement, and regulatory/permitting review.
