WAPA Container Port Underground

St. Croix, USVI

J. Benton Construction successfully completed the Water and Power Authority Container Port Underground Project on the island of St. Croix. This $2.5 million civil engineering project involved the installation of 15,000 linear feet (KLF) of high voltage utility lines, enhancing the island’s electrical infrastructure and reliability.

The project required meticulous planning and execution to install the high voltage lines underground, ensuring minimal disruption to the port’s operations and surrounding areas. Our team adhered to stringent safety and quality standards, utilizing advanced techniques and equipment to complete the installation efficiently and effectively.

This significant upgrade to St. Croix’s utility infrastructure not only improves the resilience and reliability of the island’s power supply but also supports future growth and development. J.
