After the construction project at St. John’s Harbour was successfully finished, the focus will shift to port maintenance and functionality.
The development of the port, according to Darwin Telemaque, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Port Authority, was finished with minimal setbacks, with the exception of the need to complete the dredging at St. John’s Harbour so that the nation can accept Oasis Class ships this winter.
The C.E.O. exclaimed with delight that the port’s development went more smoothly than is customary for a large project.
“In essence, we can conclude that this initiative came to a successful conclusion. We are really happy about the fact that, unlike many other public sectors and even private sector projects, this one does not require stop cap measures or addenda to boost costs.
The port authority “now has to take that success to another level of maintenance and operationalization,” he stated.
Operationalizing and space functioning as well as upkeep are our two primary issues.
Telemauqe said, “Success is promising, and I am sure that these two difficulties will be overcome.”
“Those two things will determine how successful we are, and with the effort that we are going to put in, with the team that we have, and with the support we are going to have with the Minister and the board, we are going to achieve a successful transition from construction to operationalization,” he concluded.
