Infrastructure and Utilities Directorate
The central office of the Infrastructure and Utilities Directorate lies adjacent to the Castle buildings at the north end of Jamestown.
The Director is supported by a staff compliment of nearly 200 people of varying skills and expertise, and the total expenditure of these teams amounts to just in excess of £5.2 million per year. In addition the teams generate more than £3.5 million of income as well.
Previously known as PWSD, the Infrastructure and Utilities Directorate has overall responsibility for providing and maintaining the island’s generation and distribution of electricity; water collection, treatment and distribution; its sewerage system; the network of public roads and bridges, and the provision and maintenance of the Crown Estate buildings and land. It also provides technical advice on construction projects across SHG.
In addition to providing general public and administration services, the Directorate also has responsibility for the St Helena Government’s pool of vehicles which provides transport and construction plant for its own and other directorates’ essential needs.
The aim of the Directorate is to support the development of St Helena by providing a range of high quality services with commercial efficiency, whilst at the same time, strengthening the country’s infrastructure, thereby enabling the Island to achieve a healthy and eventually financially independent St Helena.
