Dr Bird

Dr Bird I and II

Old Harbour, Jamaica

124 MW

Wärtsilä Corporation won a repeat order for a 50 MW power barge from the Caribbean island of Jamaica in April 2005. It joined the existing 74 MW Wärtsilä power barge delivered ten years before.

The new power barge was ordered by the independent power producer (IPP) Jamaica Energy Partners LLC under a turnkey contract.

Jamaica Energy Partners is a company controlled by the Latin Power Funds I and II. These funds, formerly known as the Scudder Latin America (SLAP) funds, are today managed by Conduit Capital Partners out of New York City. This deal constitutes the fourth transaction between the LP funds and Wärtsilä throughout the course of a successful long-term relationship.
