Evaluation Summary – Base Load Capacity Project

In December 2010, the Office of Utilities Regulation (the “OUR”) issued a Request for Proposals inviting applicants to submit proposals to provide new generation capacity amounting to 480MW net to the national grid of Jamaica on a Build Own and Operate Basis (BOO) (“RFP”). This new capacity was to be base-load and was intended to replace approximately 292 MW of inefficient aged plants with the remainder to provide for load growth.

The OUR terminated the RFP process for the procurement of 360 MW of generation capacity with the sole bidder, Jamaica Public Service Company Limited (JPS) on February 1, 2013. Subsequently JPS and a number of other entities expressed an interest to provide a solution for Jamaica’s electricity needs.
