Under Kuwait Fund Loan for Rehabilitation of Greenville Port: NPA Signs First Equipment Supply…

first_imgThe National Port Authority (NPA) has signed a contract with Kalmar West Africa for the supply of Container Forklift for use at the Port of Greenville in Sinoe County.The signing ceremony took place yesterday at NPA head office on Bushrod Island, with Managing Director David F. Williams signing on behalf of the Port and Mr. Juan Roel Moreno for Kalmar West Africa.According to the NPA management, the agreement marked the first of several procurable contracts to be concluded under the terms and conditions of the Kuwaiti Loan for the rehabilitation of the Greenville Port.Mr. Williams explained that the management team is in the process of concluding contracts for the supply of marine crafts (tug boats, pilot boats and patrol boats) with SMIT Lamnalco and another with J.A. Delmas, for the supply of one Log Loader.He said the contracts are being negotiated with the entities that were the most responsive bidders after an International Competitive Bidding (ICB) procurement method and the required bid evaluation and due diligence process for each procurable item.And as it is required, Mr. Williams said, the bidding process results along with all associated documentations were sent to the PPCC requesting no objections to award contracts to the most responsive bidders.PPCC approved all but two of the requests – to award contracts for the supply of Reach-Stacker and Aids to Navigation. A new bidding process is underway for the remaining two items, he said.It may be recalled that in 2012, the Liberian government through the management of the NPA entered into a loan agreement with the Kuwait Fund to fund rehabilitation of the Port of Greenville in Sinoe County. Under the terms of the agreement, funding was allocated for the following items: Navigational Aids, Security and Electrical Equipment, Marine Crafts, Cargo Handling Equipment, Institutional Support and Contingencies.The first bidding process in 2015 under Mr. Williams’ management team yielded quotations from the bidders that were far above budgetary allocations, he said.As a result, the NPA cancelled the bid and started a new process, having sought the permission of the Kuwait Fund to reduce the scope of the purchase.Director Williams said the first contract with Kalmar West Africa, valued at US$368,123.92, was drafted with the help of the Ministry of Justice and was forwarded to the Ministries of Justice and Finance and Development Planning for attestation.All subsequent contracts of US$250,000 and above will be similarly drafted and forwarded to the Ministries of Justice and Finance and Development Planning for attestation as required under the Public Financial Management law, Mr. Williams said. In a related development, the NPA management reported that the process for the pavement of internal roads, automating the financial systems, dredging of the Freeport of Monrovia and the rehabilitation of the Port of Harper, are well on course.Mr. Williams said the NPA management team has made commitments to the government about project deliverables and remains focused on delivering on all projects already outlined and approved by the Board of Directors.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
