MARITIME REPORTER - August 2016
Since 2010, our Shipbuilding and Repair Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (SRDC) has lobbied and hosted nine (9) Project Consultations and Site Visits to our existing stakeholder shipyards for the benefit of community residents of La Brea and environs.
The various communities which comprise a number of small coastal villages have jointly come together and incorporated the La Brea General Council - (LGC) which has representatives from each of the various village councils and community groups on-board.
To date we have managed to successfully gain the endorsement of the LGC and many organizations (local and foreign) that support this viable initiative which will help to i) urgently diversify our economy; ii) earn valuable Foreign Exchange (FOREX) and iii) utilize local products and services in the project construction and in the operational phases.
Overall, our stakeholders will benefit from this undertaking, as the USD498 Million Shipyard Port project will comprise of Two Phases. The First Phase (USD300 Million) and the Second Phase (USD198 Million) with project financing already arranged by The China Export-Import Bank (China EximBank).
We have also managed to successfully negotiate with our EPC Contractor China Harbour Engineering Company Limited (CHEC) that there also be a high level of Local Content. The agreed Local Content amount is Forty Percent (40%) for the First Phase, which translates to TTD960,000,000 towards the Trinidad and Tobago local economy. Local project expenditure will include labour, purchase of goods and services, during construction.
