A ship carrying 200,000 barrels of diesel docked yesterday morning at the Thorlande terminal in  Carrefour, according to the director general of the Office for Monetization of Development Assistance Programs ( BMPAD), Fils-Aimé Ignace St Fleur.

Ignace St Fleur is hoping that this new shipment of diesel should put an end to the shortage of electricity for commercial enterprises and residential properties.

In the last few months, residents in Port-au-Prince have gone days without electricity and when power is restored it is for only a couple of hours before resorting to blackout.
