Petition to Release the Power Plant Documents

The Wadadli Power PlantAntigua, St. John's - The Wadadli Power Plant is a Government project with the aim of moving the country's power generation out of the hands of the private sector and into the hands of the Antigua Public Utilities Authority. 

Schemes for the Power Plant were started as early as 2005, with the first official agreement being signed in 2008. The Government also received a loan equal to $300 Million Chinese Yuan (RMB). This loan was never brought to parliament for approval, even though this is absolutely necessary under Antigua and Barbuda's law.

Caribarena's investigation into the Power Plant started in early 2009, not long after the engines and other components first arrived at the Ports of Antigua and Barbuda. The Power Plant was officially handed over to the Government on September of 2011. 

A few months after the Hand Over ceremony, photographers of Caribarena took alarming photographs of the power plant, raising doubts about the quality and age of the engines. Significant oil leaks, rust, and wear are some of the elements that have raised the doubts in the mind of the people. Those Photographs can be seen here.



Since the Hand Over, the Power Plant has been riddled with controversy. From the numerous Chinese companies involved in the project to the quality and age of the Engines themselves, everything related to the power plant has been brought into question. A complete list of all of Caribarena's articles on the Wadadli Power Plant has been compiled at the bottom of this article.

The handling of the situation by the authorities has further complicated the matter, with the Government taking a defensive and at times aggressive position to defend the Power Plant. 

All the while, rumors of engines being down and the other problems of the Power Plant have been constantly in the air, including a Corrosion Report, Sinking Fuel Tanks, Engine problems, and many others.

While several Chinese representatives and the Government claim the engines are new, no official evidence has been provided to support their claims. The Government also recently announced that an inquiry into the Power Plant will not be undertaken.

In Antigua and Barbuda, we pride ourselves with the democratic and free country that we enjoy. Our Government has signed and put in place acts to ensure transparency, like the Freedom of Information Act.

However, the Government now refuses to release evidence of their claims. They refuse to disclose information to the public like was promised during the 2009 elections and like the law of the land demands. 

If you believe in your rights as a member of the public, in your freedom as a citizen of a democratic nation, and in your right to know what is being done with your money by the Government, demand the release of the Power Plant documents!

Demand transparency from the Government! Demand the truth, for better or for worse. The team at Caribarena have made available the below petition. Please sign the petition, and show you support this cause.

RE: Petition to Release the Power Plant Documents

#23 Corrupt Government » 2013-05-19 15:16

OK lets consider what the UPP has done to hurt the citizens of Antigua.

Personal Income Tax.
ABST.
By passing parliament in violation of Antigua's own laws.
Fencing Scandal.
Wadadli Power Plant Scandal.
Incompetence.
Expropriated land to build the new airport on.
Suppressed the report into the FSRC.

There is a lot I have missed but perhaps Cool Ruler can point out ONE POSITIVE thing this government has achieved....just ONE!

RE: Petition to Release the Power Plant Documents

#22 Bebe » 2013-01-14 15:44

Wow! Love your sophisticated modern paper. Government business is our business. Antiguans need to be educated in politics and realize that they are the bosses who hired these people; therefore it is incumbent on them to be transparent especially where large projects are concerned. We cried fowl with former government expecting better, but in my humbly opinion we get a blatant "in your face". Not acceptable, especially when my power keeps going off.

#20 Sort it ASAP » 2012-06-27 06:35

I'm really confused. When a job as big as this has completed,is there no-one such as an inspector appointed to check that the job done is satisfactory and that is p** all the criteria set by the country regulations. There seem to be a political vendetta taking place. If the Antiguan government has been duped,then they need to take it up with the Chinese company and try to get it sorted ASAP.I am fed-up of all this political bashing from both sides. We all need to work together for the better of our country.

Both parties committed astroties against the country so we should never again blindly support 1 party over another.. They both have good elements and bad.Lador did create the the tourist industry, builts hospitals ,all the country's infastructure ,a state of the art fiber optic network, tousands of jobs ect ect..All this was done with out the burden of income tax on the people and on less than halv the revenue the Upp currently gets.
There are elements in the ALP that should never be trusted with power again and elements in the UPP that should stop killing the Country with there corrupt stadiums, car parks,chinese generators, ect.

You listed eight(8) entities, but if you consider closely , they really amount to three(3). The govt of china, SXD, XMEA and BCEG can really be considered one and the same thing; Govt. of Antigua and Barbuda, Board and management of APUA and engineers of APUA must be considered one and the same thing; so we are left with MAN Diesel and Turbo SE Germany. So you see it all adds up to three(3). If you leave MAN Diesel and Turbo out of it, US$47M is alot of money by any standards. AM SURE YOU ARE SMART ENOUGH.

#15 The Dark Ages » 2012-05-10 19:54

Antiguans have no spine and sometimes I wonder if the ALP shouldnt just throw in the towel and allow the UPP to have their wicked way with the people. It seems that Antiguans have no interest in helping themselves get out from the UPP clutches, mismanagement, debt that they have forced us into. They have no desire to be seen and counted. Where is all the solidarity that we pride ourselves on every labor day in NY and Miami when we proudly wear our flag? if only people really knew what a bunch of selfish, badminded people we really are. We dont care for each other, we are all about self.

#10 the_man » 2012-05-10 12:06

what you say is irrelevant my friend. Gaston Browne himself signed the above petition. What you say is irrelevant. Corruption or no corruption, the government should be transparent. What you say is irrelevant. If you are willing to trust gaston's word that corruption is what is fueling the fight against the WPP, when he himself is fighting it, then you're crazy. And what you say is most irrelevant because even if corruption is what is driving the fight against the power plant, it doesn't mean the power plant itself is legitimate.

TRUTH SUPPRESSED WILL RISE

#7 THEN GODFATHER » 2012-05-10 09:54

Caribarena's article is forged to undermine it's true content, the political subject of the WPP is a tactical approach to sabotage the government.This was obvious when Chairman and Deputy Political Leader of the ALP Gaston Brown alleges corrupt practices exist: Persons were paid to say the WPP engines were used! Yet, Gaston's information was not part of the story. Why? This is vindication of all that was written, an a loss of credibility to those who continue to advance this issue.

However, one intends to spin the complex web of deceit, truth suppressed will rise, Gaston is truth's emissary!

#6 Dig It » 2012-05-10 08:47

As concern citizens, we should demand that we get full\total disclosure of all documents to "prove" the WPP is new! No ifs or buts about that! At this point, we should put our "politricks" aside and ask for the GOAB's "transperancy" and "accountability" in providing the details (nothing but the truth...no botched paper trail) to the public! CA's photos proved otherwise that we got a "six-for-nine" for 52 million dollars! I really hope citizens sign the "petition," as I will! I also ask my fellow bloggers like Cool "Chief-of-staff" Ruler to do the same, and, "let the chips fall where they may!"

The following companies, individuals and governments have conspired to deceive the people of Antigua and Barbuda as they all have something to gain by doing so

The Government of China,
The Government of Antigua,
The Board and Management of APUA,
Engineers of APUA, Shanxi Diesel Engine Heavy Industry Co Ltd (SXD)
Xi’an Marine Equipment Engineering Research Academy (XMEA),
Beijing Construction Engineering Group (BCEG),
MAN Diesel and Turbo SE Germany.

Wow! That’s a lot of individuals companies and Governments that have set out to rob and deceive the nation of Antigua and Barbuda. I wonder what they all have to gain by doing so?
