Work was expected to commence since July but the timetable was affected by the late arrival of the equipment.

The US$15.4 million contract for the first phase was awarded to Synergy Holdings. President Bharrat Jagdeo recently said Synergy was awarded the contract after an assessment by a technical team and he indicated a willingness to have the technical evaluators share information regarding how the firm won the contract.
