SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Whitefish Energy Holdings today issued the following statement:
In response to Governor Rosselló’s request on Sunday, PREPA and Whitefish Energy have been in discussions on the most constructive way to wind-down our work in Puerto Rico under the terms of our agreement.
The highest priority for all parties is that the work started by Whitefish Energy continue (current operations at facebook.com/whitefishenergy). Today, Whitefish Energy agreed that when our work currently underway has been completed, the work of our subcontractors who wish to remain on the island should certainly be allowed to continue under management by PREPA directly or any entity designated to manage and direct future work. Until that time, Whitefish Energy has agreed to manage the work during the wind-down process.
For over a month, through a fast-paced and challenging operational environment, Whitefish Energy has worked side-by-side with the engineering and operations team of PREPA to repair and rebuild the electric transmission system. We stand by our work and commitment to this mission and have not let the external distractions impact the pace of power restoration which is ahead of the 30 percent goal for the end of October established by Governor Rosselló. Our commitment to the people of Puerto Rico means we will use every effort to transition the processes we have built with the PREPA team and to finish tasks at hand, so that the critical repairs made since October 2, that are now coming online, can continue in a safe, orderly fashion, for the sake of the people of Puerto Rico still awaiting power.
