Date: January 25, 2013

Site (Location):

Jamaica Public Service (JPS) Montego Bay Division

Objectives:

To identify the environmental impacts of burning oil
To interview tour guide
Activities:

The site was visited at 10:00 Am and a trained employee was assigned to give me a tour of the power plant. I was informed of their methods of burning oil and the different types of machinery used to produce electricity. A note of the method and machinery used by JPS was made, pictures taken and observations were recorded.

Observation:

The temperature within the premises was about 31°C. The power plant uses a combined cycle to produce their energy. This specific site was said to have the most advanced technology compared to other stations island wide.

Comments:

A 120 megawatt combined cycle which is made up of three individual units; two combustion turbine generating units with a total capacity of 80 megawatts, and one 40-megawatt steam-generating unit. The two combustion turbines burn diesel fuel but can be converted to natural gas at any point in the future.
