"We know the value of mutual assistance partnerships and are proud to step up, and lend our resources and expertise to this initiative to help get Puerto Rico back on its feet".

Officials say the power outage in Puerto Rico has been the longest disruption of electricity in USA history. The total number of field employees from the Northwoods is seven. Following the expected arrival of this restoration equipment in Puerto Rico in mid-January, Ameren is planning for its co-workers to be on the ground contributing to the relief effort shortly thereafter, as part of a contingent of 1,500 additional personnel arriving from the mainland.

Dominion Energy Virginia announced Tuesday that it plans to send restoration workers and equipment to help rebuild the island's energy grid that was destroyed during 2017's devastating hurricane season.

Many residents of Puerto Rico remain without power three months after Hurricane Maria toppled the power infrastructure.

"As we speak, hundreds of trucks and thousands of pieces of equipment are being barged into Puerto Rico", said Carlos D. Torres, power restoration coordinator appointed by Gov. Ricardo Rosselló. "Completing the damage assessments allowed us to identify the types of additional human and equipment resources that we need".

The IMTs also have identified new lodging and basecamps for crews and staging sites for materials that will allow for workers and materials to be located closer to where the work needs to be done. Ameren personnel will work under the direction of incident management teams (IMTs) that were deployed to Puerto Rico Dec. 10 to support the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority's (PREPA's) regional directors. Our focus, as always, will be working safely so we can restore power as efficiently as possible for the people of Puerto Rico, " Wiesehan said. It's part of the USA utility industry effort to help rebuild electric infrastructure to the island.
