(Antigua Observer) The Antigua Public Utilities Authority’s (APUA) Electricity Manager has revealed that it will cost EC $6 million to bring three of the six engines at the Wadadli Power Plant (WPP) back online.
Andre Matthias said an assessment of the repairs necessary had been completed and a company by the name of Damex WinPower – which specialises in power plant maintenance – would be part of WPP’s rehabilitation.
According to the electricity manager, the $6 million figure includes the cost of the work to be done, the contracted services and the parts needed for the plant.
APUA, via a press release on Tuesday, said that the Electricity Business Unit has begun repairs to the plant and expects it to be operational by the end of the year. Matthias concurred that the target deadline was feasible.
