Work on 44-acre Vreed-en-hoop shorebase project advances
Work on what is expected to be a 44-acre port facility in West Demerara is advancing, with the land reclamation exercise to build the artificial island now complete, the company Vreed-en-hoop Shorebase Inc (VEHSI) said on Monday.
In a statement, VEHSI said that the mega dredger M.V Galileo Galilei has completed the job to reclaim sand to build the island on which the terminal for the US$300 million project will rest. The M.V Galileo Galilei is owned and operated by the Jan De Nul Group which is in a joint partnership with three Guyanese companies that are engaged in the project.
Further, VEHSI said the 200M quay wall construction and works are now focused on fitting fenders and bollards, excavation in front of the quay wall, pavement, electrical and lighting, buildings, and utilities.
VESHI recently advertised for more local service providers as it moves closer to the December completion date.
The company is now receiving information for the potential engagement of between 30-90 services.
VEHSI is actively seeking local companies in its request for Foundational and Facility Management Services for its shore base in Region3 and additional services in Region 4.
