Bogue Plant 120MW combined cycle expansion

A 120MW combined cycle plant has been added to the existing Bogue plant site near Montego Bay. The plant consists of a two on one configuration utilizing General Electric Europe 6B combustion turbines, ATS Express HRSG’s and a General Electric Nuovo Pignone steam turbine.

The project challenges included assumption of engineering for the project after an engineering, procurement and construction contractor was dismissed,  a 'fast track' schedule for simple cycle operation and complications associated with the use of gray water. Purchasing activities included procurement of bulk items that are normally furnished by the contractor.

Fuel used for the combustion turbines is a light distillate oil. NOx emissions are controlled with water injection. Plant started up in simple cycle operation, followed by combined cycle operation a year later.
