On September 15, the Minister for Communications and Works, Honourable Mark Vanterpool and officials of the British Virgin Islands Electricity Corporation welcomed the press for a tour of the Phase V Power Development at the Pockwood Pond power station.

During the tour, the media had an opportunity to see the on-going expansion works and receive updates on the development. Phase V includes the installation of two 34.5 KV transmission cables from Pockwood Pond to Long Bush, plus the installation of three diesel-fired Wartsila generators.

The Phase V Programme is on schedule and will be executed by the end of the year.  (Photo credit: Franklyn Skerritt/GIS)
