The Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) has been awarded a grant by the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to support the development of an offshore wind farm off the coast of the Caribbean island.  

The grant will go towards a feasibility study, which will be carried out by US outfit Keystone Engineering, to evaluate the viability of the project.

PCJ Group general manager Winston Watson said: “This study will help the PCJ to get valuable data that can attract overseas investment for the development of our offshore wind resources and we look forward to a fruitful partnership with USTDA and with (Keystone Engineering).”

USTDA regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean Nathan Younge said: “The study will help to develop new energy resources and create potential commercial opportunities for US technologies in Jamaica.”
