Dan Theoc, chief financial officer for the Jamaica Public Service Company limited (JPS), said yesterday that the company expects to have its dual-fuel plant in Bogue running on natural gas by August, a factor which will reduce local dependence on heavy fuel oil by 10 per cent.
Theoc said the company’s LNG supplier, New Fortress Energy, is advanced in its construction of storage units in Montego Bay, which will number seven in total.
Construction of a 1.6-km supply line is also underway and slated for completion in less than three months.
Permits for land lease for the storage units and easements for the supply line have also been secured, he said.
