Contractor General Dirk Harrison is remaining mum on the emergence of Hong Kong-based Energy World International (EWI) as the preferred bidder for the project to provide 360 megawatts of power to the national grid.
EWI was selected after Azurest Cambrige Power failed to meet last Friday’s deadline to come up with the US$6.9 million project bond.
The Contractor General had objected to the company’s inclusion in the bidding process as he said his special investigation found that EWI benefited from what he called the irregular and improper intervention of Energy Minister Phillip Paulwell.
Harrison insisted that the acceptance of EWI’s bid by the Office of Utilities Regulations (OUR) was unfair and compromised the integrity of the bidding process.
The OUR and Paulwell have dismissed the claims and have maintained that the 360 megawatt project bidding process was above board.
Harrison declined to comment when contacted this afternoon by our news centre about the fact that EWI is now the preferred bidder.
