Cuban Engineers to work on joint projects with VINLEC

A team comprising five engineers from Cuba is expected in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) “in the coming period” to start working on joint projects, a release issued by the Cuban embassy in SVG states. This follows a courtesy meeting on Monday, April 15, 2024 between Cuba’s new Ambassador to SVG, Carlos Ernesto Rodríguez Etcheverry, and CEO of Vinlec, Vaughn Lewis.

The meeting was favourable to addressing issues of common interest and analyzing the possibilities of immediate collaboration, in an area in which almost for 20 years there has not been joint projects between the two countries, whose historic cooperation has focused primarily on health and education.

VINLEC offers services to 98% of the Vincentian population, generating electricity mostly from its hydro plants and, to a lesser extent, solar sources (Cubaminrex-EmbaCuba Saint Vincent and the Grenadines).
