Bogue CC
Location: Jamaica
Operator: Jamaica Public Service Co Ltd
Configuration: 120-MW, 2+1 CCGT with 6001B gas turbines
Operation: 1972-2003
Fuel: diesel oil
HRSG supplier: ATS
T/G supplier: GE, Nuovo Pignone
EPC: AMEC, Schrader Camargo, Manning
Quick facts: JPS invested $120mn in the Bogue CCGT plant. When the new plant was built, JPS completed a centralized control facility for all the generating sets. The utility partnered with the National Water Commission (NWC) to minimize water use for the CCGT block and uses treated wastewater from the NWC Bogue treatment plant. This involved building facilities at the power plant to treat and purify the NWC  grey water plus new underground pipes to transmit the water between the sites.
