Plans to have the highly-anticipated new asphalt plant commissioned in April are progressing well as the Public Infrastructure Ministry awaits the shipment of the plant later this month.The plant is scheduled for shipment on February 25, 2019 from Germany, according to the Ministry and the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation (DHBC). Officials from these two entities recently inspected the plant in Germany to verify its state of readiness and preparatory arrangements for shipment to Guyana.The new asphalt plant was procured through public tender during 2018 by the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation, signalling an increase in operations and growth in demand.As reported, it is anticipated that the new asphalt plant will have the power and capability to produce approximately 160 tonnes of asphalt per hour – almost four times faster than the current asphalt plant. Presently, the Special Projects Unit under the Public Infrastructure Ministry utilises almost 60 per cent of the asphalt produced by the DHBC.As an infrastructural investment, this plant is expected to provide efficiency in the continuity of supply of materials to the Ministry in the execution of road construction and rehabilitation, without compromising quality or price, as the DHBC remains the cheapest asphalt concrete producing company in Guyana.Further, as the product of a top brand worldwide, the new plant is expected to meet all required environmental standards regarding air and noise emissions.The Ministry said the installation will equip Guyana with the most modern plant within the Caribbean.
