BVIEC Plant Gets New Name

Getting roses while alive and being able to witness it and celebrate the prestigious moment is the experience of the man who though retired is revered among those associated with the BVI Electricity Corporation - Henry Wilfred “Freddy” Smith.

This adulation was bestowed on Mr. Smith in the presence of hundreds gathered at the Power Plant at Pockwood Pond on May 4, 2017.

His story of dedication, relentlessness and committed service was echoed by everyone who spoke at the ceremony, including his brother, Premier and Minister of Finance Dr. D. Orlando Smith.

Mr. Smith began his employment at the then Electricity Ice and Cold storage Department on January 1, 1965 and worked in the garage of the Power Station.

Freddie played an integral role in the installation of the three General Motors engines at Long Bush which were later decommissioned and one was placed on Anegada to start the power station on that island.

Now, after serving for over 49 years, the territory’s main power generation facility is being name after him following the installation of three gen sets, taking the company closer to pulling the curtains down on the BVIEC Long Bush power generating operations.

Smith was present at the ceremony and received his roses in his usual humble tone.
