New Backup Generator Facility

The project was approved with 15 conditions. The new facility will be constructed on Portion 176 Lagoon Road in the old quarry site located between the Mulley Drive intersection and Capella.  The Backup generator is currently housed in the powerhouse but for security of supply reasons the LHIB agreed to the relocation of the backup generator to an appropriate site at the southern end of the island to provide better energy security for the island.

Construction of the new facility will commence in coming months but the backup generator is not expected to be relocated and commissioned until after the new powerhouse has been commissioned.
