Jamalco Alumina Refinery Enters into Joint Development Agreement with New Fortress Energy

Noble Group Limited (Noble) announced that the Jamalco alumina refinery in Clarendon, Jamaica, owned jointly by its subsidiary General Alumina Jamaica LLC (GAJ) and Clarendon Alumina Production Limited (CAP), recently entered into a Joint Development Agreement with New Fortress Energy (NFE) to develop a Combined Heat & Power Facility (Cogen Plant) that will supply power to the national grid and high pressure steam to Jamalco. NFE will finance, develop, construct, own and operate the Cogen Plant, a natural gas-fired steam and electric power generating facility utilizing combustion turbines and heat recovery steam generators, located adjacent to the Jamalco refinery facility. The Cogen Plant will supply approximately 94MW of electric power to Jamaica Public Service Company Limited (JPS). Jamalco will provide the site and utilities for the Cogen Plant and support NFE with permitting and design. As part of the project, NFE will construct and operate a natural gas pipeline extending from their proposed liquefied natural gas storage and re-gasification facility to the Cogen Plant and Jamalco. NFE also has an agreement with JPS to supply gas to Jamaica's 120-megawatt power plant in Bogue, Montego Bay, as well as a new 190-megawatt power plant at Old Harbour Bay, St. Catherine.
