BVIEC linesmen return from Bahamas deployment

Four Linesmen from the BVI Electricity Corporation (BVIEC) who departed on October 7, 2019, to help the hurricane-ravaged Bahamas islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco in their electricity restoration efforts have returned to the Virgin Islands.

Premier and Minister of Finance, Hon Andrew A. Fahie in an update yesterday, November 23 2019, said, "The team is now home after working and successfully partnering with regional counterparts to restore electricity following the Category 5 Hurricane Dorian which devastated the Bahamas in early September."

Hon Fahie continued, "I thank the team for the tremendous work they have done. The team of four was led by Trevor M. Stevens aka ‘West’ and includes Jason Clyne, Damien Richardson and Shaquil Samuel aka ‘Shack’."

Premier Fahie also extended gratitude to Mr Leroy A. E. Abraham, General Manager of the BVIEC, for his leadership and the corporation, "We continue to keep the government and people of The Bahamas in our prayers," he said.

Premier Fahie had said the assistance offered by the Virgin Islands came as the territory was reciprocating what was received with regards to the help received when the Virgin Islands was ravaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria of September 2017.
