New Fortress Energy (NFE), was conceived from Mr. Wesley Edens’ vision to provide clean, reliable, and affordable natural gas to end users ranging from power generation to transportation. He is the company’s Founder and Chairman. Since the company’s inception, Mr. Edens has led all business and market development activities including construction of Florida’s first LNG liquefaction plant in Miami and development of Jamaica’s first LNG receiving terminal and first gas-fired power plant.
New Fortress Energy has proudly partnered with Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) and the government of Jamaica to bring clean and affordable energy to Jamaica. With New Fortress Energy’s multimillion investments in terminals and infrastructure necessary to deliver liquified natural gas (LNG), the country has made huge strides towards energy diversity, fuel security, flexible generation and the introduction of more renewable energy. In just a few years, nearly all of Jamaica’s electricity will be generated by environmentally-friendly natural gas and renewable energy.
