…As Contractor Shows Capacity, Moves To Site
The Contractor that has been awarded contract for the construction of the Anomabo Sea Defence Wall, Q3 Company Limited, has shown capacity to deliver even ahead of time, by moving logistics to the project site.
Speaking to the media at the project site where the logistics and equipment were, Eng. Crisler Nii Ankrah, Director of Projects for Q3 Company Limited indicated that the company has all the capacity- from human resources, logistics and equipment, to be able to deliver quality work for the people along the coast.
According to him, although the company was given a 4-year contract period over which to deliver, the project would be delivered within 2-and-a-half year period.
This, he noted, was because the company had all the ingredients to deliver.
“We are poised for action. And as you can see today the equipment that we have here on site is about 55% and more are coming, because of the plan to start the project,” he said.
He also explained that for the project to be successful, the company needed things such as good quality aggregate, rocks/bolts, adding that “we have one of the best stone quarries to supply the stones for the project and we hope to execute it as fast as practicable. The fact is that we have the capacity and human resources to deliver.”
Eng. Crisler Nii Ankrah also indicated that the contractors are looking forward to delivering a successful project that would help alleviate the problems confronting people along the coast.
He however debunked assertions that the company did not have the capacity to work on such a project. He averred that the position taken against the company by some people as regards the Anomabo Sea Defence project could be borne out of sheer malice, stressing that Q3 Company Limited was a wholly-owned Ghanaian company which has more than enough capacity to deliver.
“When it comes to human resource, we have it and this is not a very daunting task that we cannot deliver,” he added.
The Central Regional Minister, Hon. Kwabena Duncan indicated that the construction of the defence wall was a response to the needs of the people to avoid devastations on the town.
“We as a region thank government for such a project,” he said.
He said government has decided to focus on the needs of the people and the Anomabo Sea Defence wall was one of such interventions.
He also noted that the construction of the project would create jobs for the indigenous people, boost business in the region and add to the internal economy of the region.
Hon. Kwabena Duncan also averred that Q3 Company Limited had the capacity and experience to deliver and that people who are kicking against the award of the contract to the company are treacherous, malicious and ignorant of the project and the capacity the company has for which it had been considered.
He also sees the project as a plus for a Ghanaian company, which is poised to deliver way ahead of time.
“The project is bringing lots of money into the local community and the entire region, as all materials to be used will be acquired from the region so for us, this is good and we are for it,” he said.
He assured the contactor of his support and promised to work with them day and night to ensure smooth execution of the project.
Journalists were taken to the quarry site where Eng. Crisler Nii Ankrah explained that due to the proximity of the quarry to the project site, they will be getting more than 20,000 tonnes of stones/aggregate/bolts in a month for the project.
This, he said, will add up to the speed with which the project will be undertaken.
He said: “The proximity of the quart positions us in one of the best in terms of speed and quality if materials for the project. Various checks have been made on the quarry and we are having the best materials from the quarry for the project.”
