Construction on a new solar PV project will start in Northwestern Cuba in January 2018. Deltro Group Ltd. a Canadian-based developer of clean renewable energy projects was awarded a contract to build, own and operate a solar photovoltaic electric generating facility in north western Cuba. The facility will feed into the national grid, operated and maintained by Union Electrica de Cuba (UNE)
“We are truly excited to have been selected to build this facility which will promote and produce a cleaner renewable energy future for the Cuban people” states Deltro President and CEO David Del Mastro. “Throughout our more than 30 years in business Deltro has established a solid reputation as a leading electrical services company.”
To support the construction, Deltro will contract a number of leading companies to assist our team and will work to source as much content from Barbados as possible. “While thousands of workers in Cuba will realize a significant benefit as a result of this investment, Deltro will also seek to involve our operations in Barbados to the greatest extent possible” states Deltro Group Vice President and C.F.O.Dean Del Mastro. “Our goal is to always provide the greatest employment and investment benefits to local workers and companies in any country where we are operating while also securing trade benefits for Barbados and Canada whenever possible”.
Deltro Group Ltd. has previously announced its proposed plans to build, own and operate a solar PV farm and solar panel manufacturing facility in Barbados, home of its international operations. While the project has faced delays, these plans remain in place as does Deltro’s commitment to see them through over the coming months.
