The Barbados Defence Force’s (BDF) Engineering Troop completed the generator shelter at New Market St George, in providing assistance to the efforts of the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) to construct reinforced concrete structures to secure electrical generators at pumping stations across the island.

The effort is another civil-military (CIMIC) project undertaken in assistance to Civil Ministries (MACM) to ensure resilience and readiness for the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season. These generators will ensure continuous electrical supply to the major pumping stations should there be power outages during the passage of severe weather systems.
