MAHO BAY-GEBE technicians finalized the electricity connection for the Maho Group of Companies on Friday, February 6, 2009. As part of the electricity supply agreement that was signed on January 30, 2009, GEBE had two weeks to complete the connection. However, the project was completed ahead of schedule by the GEBE and Omrod technicians who worked diligently to expedite the process.
GEBE and Maho signed the electricity supply agreement after more than two years of negotiations. The main reasons Maho switched were an increased reliability of service and cost effectiveness that GEBE offers. The Maho properties were officially switched over to GEBE power at 7:30 p.m. Friday evening. As a result, the Maho plant turned off its engines indefinitely after operating since 1993.
