FXB Engineering Announces Implementation of a Solar Generating Plant for St. Thomas, USVI that will provide up to 5% of the Islands Energy Source

FXB Engineering provides high level of reliability on VIWAPA’s transmission systems for generation resources.

FXB Engineering, a leading provider of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection engineering services, promotes our continued engineering services provided to The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority. “FXB implemented a new 34.5kV Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) substation located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) to tie in the 5 MW of solar power into the utility companies transmission system. We are excited to be a part of this project. The newly installed solar farm will provide 4-5% of St Thomas’s current base load capacity during daylight hours. FXB provided a robust double bus 34.5kV GIS design with primary and backup protection for the transmission lines in order to maintain a high level of reliability on VIWAPA’s transmission system,” states Peter J. Bonnes, President at FXB Engineering.

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority and Main Street Power Company hosted the dedication ceremonies last month for the new solar power generation plant in Estate Donoe on St. Thomas. The new facility was tested and peaked at 4.2MW. WAPA chief executive officer and executive director Hugo V. Hodge, Jr. said the addition of the solar farm and a similar installation on St. Croix, which was dedicated in 2014, continues the authority’s effort to diversify its generation resources.
