It has been a promise made year after year. “No more blackouts”. But it seems the current administration has a plan to finally bring an end to the dark days.
As promised, generators, specifically built for uninterrupted regulation of electricity has finally arrived in Guyana. The generators costs billions of dollars and once finally installed maybe the solution to the decade old problem.
The Government’s plan however to end blackouts is moving apace with work to set up the new powerplant at Garden of Eden, East Bank Demerara.
The new power plant is 58 per cent complete.
The five Wartsila generators, which are the main components of the 46.5MW powerplant, arrived in Guyana last week.
Minister within the Ministry of Public Works, Deodat Indar said each generator weighs approximately 150 metric tonnes and has a 9.3MW output.
