SANCHO OFF TO ENGLAND TO PUSH GEC EXPANSION PROGRAMME

Mr. T. Anson Sancho, chairman of the Guyana Electricity Corporation, leaves Guyana today for the United Kingdom at the invitation of English Electric Company, a multi-million enterprise. English Electric is to sell the GEC a number of diesel machinery and Mr. Sancho will be shown around various factories in many ports of England owned and operated by the company, and more particularly, the administrative process used by the firm. Mr. Sancho will hold further discussions with officials of the company on more machinery that may be ordered by the Corporation.
The corporation’s deputy chief mechanical Engineer, Mr. David Spence, is already in London checking on the operation and maintenance of what has been described as, very modern and sturdy machinery. The machinery is necessary both as replacements to worn-out machines now in use as well as for the development programme of expansion in which the Corporation is now engaged.
