Wind Turbine Components for the Munro Wind Farm are now in the Island

The Munro Wind Project is now one step closer to becoming a reality, as the wind turbine components have now arrived in the island. The parts, which arrived last week from South Korea, will be transported to the work site in Munro St. Elizabeth, to construct what will be a 4 wind turbine project, expected to contribute 3 MW of electricity to the national grid.

JPS has been carrying out extensive preparatory work over the last several weeks, including excavation, construction work on foundations, and road widening activities to facilitate the transportation of these large units. Additionally, five JPS team members, (technicians and maintenance personnel), left the island on June 2, to receive maintenance training in Korea. The team will return to the island on June 23.

The project which is costing the utility company approximately J$800M, is on target for its completion date of September 2010
