The team that arrived Thursday will begin to augment ANGLEC’s linesmen immediately, and the remaining team members will follow the arrival of the equipment which is due to arrive very shortly.

  Anguilla also continues to receive outstanding support from the neighbouring islands: linesmen from both St. Lucia and Grenada employed with Kings Electric Company arrived in Anguilla on November 8, to assist with ANGLEC’s mission to get the entire island back on the grid by the end of the year.
