Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Hon. Daryl Vaz, met recently with Spanish Ambassador, H.E. Josep Bosch Bessa, and members of the TSK Group out of Spain, at Jamaica House.   The discussions were centered on the completion of the US$300 million 190 megawatt combined cycle power plant at Old Harbour Bay, in St. Catherine.

In 2017,  South Jamaica Power Company, a subsidiary of the Jamaica Public Service Company signed an engineering procurement and construction  contract with the TSK Group to undertake the turnkey construction of the plant which will assist in reducing Jamaica’s oil imports.

Construction of the plant is well advanced and should be completed ahead of schedule.
