In its thrust to pursue value-added opportunities for the citizenry, The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) signed an Engineering, Procurement, and Commissioning (EPC) contract for gas infrastructure for e TecK’s Phoenix Park Industrial Estate (PPIE), with the Beijing Construction Engineering Group Company Limited (BCEG). BCEG, a Chinese construction and engineering firm, is the design-build contractor for PPIE.
PPIE, a GORTT initiative led by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, is a state-of-the-art light industrial estate that is being developed to stimulate economic development and further diversification efforts. The 145-acre park is being built by landlord Evolving TecKnologies and Enterprise Development Company Limited (e TecK) through its contractor, BCEG.
The EPC contract signing, which took place on January 18th 2021, offers NGC an alternate avenue to achieve its strategic goals. NGC, with its wealth of experience in pipeline infrastructure construction and the sole supplier of natural gas in the local energy sector, saw the project as a natural fit with its expanding business model.
