Orinduik Development Inc. onboard with GSSF for fourth year


Like the multi-tiered series of cascades of the Orinduik Falls, Orinduik Development Inc. has been keeping a steady flow in supporting the respective shooting disciplines of the Guyana Sport Shooting Federation (GSSF).

This fourth year in a row is no different as the company once again will be sponsoring an upcoming Practical Shooting Match hosted by the GSSF.

The match is slated to bring out handgun Practical Shooters after a long time to the range. Their knowledge of firearm safety will be foremost, while competitors’ skills of marksmanship and handgun reliability will be put to the test in the fast-paced run and gun shooting that the sport of practical shooting is known for.

Orinduik Development Inc., a 100% Guyanese owned company, recently handed over the sponsorship at one of Guyana’s brand-new training facilities servicing the Oil and Gas sector.

GSSF representatives were given a tour of Orinduik Development Inc. Training Centre (ODITC) by General Manager Alan Sharp in the presence of Brian Backer of the developer Orinduik Development Inc.

During the tour of the East Coast Demerara complex, Sharp outlined ODITC’s various training services being offered in Guyana. These include Helicopter Underwater Evacuation Training (HUET), life-boat operations, multi-level lifting and rigging, working at height, Mechanical Joint Integrity (MJI), confined space operations and other various types of training that is mandatory for persons working in the booming oil and gas sector.

“All of which are offered on the shores of Guyana in keeping with the building of capacity for local content. GSSF reps also were impressed with the fact that 80 plus persons were already trained in the facility in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and its GOAL platform,” the GSSF said in a press release.

“Like the shooting sport’s focus on safety is paramount, as in the oil and gas sector, GSSF’s board and members commend the high level of safety standards that Orinduik Development Inc., ODITC and all their partners are bringing to Guyana. Orinduik Development Inc. is also building in Guyana a commercial Heliport on the Lusignan complex.”

The primary objective of the proposed heliport is to provide an independent facility for helicopter operations in close proximity to Georgetown, and to facilitate the growing need for such air transport services coming from many sectors, including the extractive industry.

The heliport is slated to provide a location for the voluntary basing of helicopter operators providing commercial services (moving people and cargo, mining, tourism, oil industry, construction, agriculture, news and media) from and near Georgetown and is also intended to support the medical, coast guard, security, search and rescue, law enforcement and other emergency services

“At the recent simple handover ceremony at the Lusignan Heliport, President of the Foundation Ryan McKinnon extended GSSF’s sincerest gratitude to Brian Backer and the Board of Directors of Orinduik Development Inc. for the kind sponsorship, their continued support to the GSSF,” the GSSF release concluded.
