Local construction firm leaves Belco job
A local firm that was part of the construction of a new power station at Belco has left the job, a spokesman for the power company said.
But the departure of Somers Construction is not expected to impact the building of the North Power Station’s buildings, tanks and underground utilities.
The $107.5 million deal, settled in July, had Somers subcontracted by the general contractor, Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S to perform the civil works portion of the job.
The Royal Gazette understands that Somers staff stopped work on the project after a meeting last Thursday.
The spokesman said: “It was by mutual agreement that BWSC and Somers Construction Limited decided not to continue working together.
“All of the local subcontractors that were working on the site when this agreement was made have agreed to continue to work directly with BWSC.
The spokesman added: “Work on the NPS will continue as scheduled during the holidays and into the New Year.”
