THE TRUTH IN BLACK AND WHITE

BOSAI boosting power capacity to facilitate Linden’s growing population

Minister of Natural Resources Vickkram Bharrat visiting BOSAI’s bauxite plant

BOSAI Minerals Group Guyana (BMGG) is in the process of installing an additional 2 Man Gensets, which would add a further 4MW of operating capacity that the company currently possesses, to provide electrification for Linden. The plant currently utilizes 9 to 10 MW at peak. With the expansion of the housing schemes, particularly in Amelia’s Ward, the company is anticipating an increased demand for electrical power, more so with the government’s house-lot allocation drive and plans to construct 1000 homes.

BOSAI’s Management relayed this to Minister of Natural Resources Vickram Bharrat ,and a team of officials from the Office of the President and the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), during his maiden visit to BOSAI’s power plant on Tuesday. The minister was able to get a first hand view of the company’s operations and its expansion projects. Bosai’s General Manager, Mr. Eric Yu and other senior managers let the site visit to the company’s bauxite and power plants.

They were shown the two (2) Dust Collectors at Refractory Kilns #13 and #14, which were commissioned in 2013, with the aim of decreasing the level of emissions of dust and smoke, which served as a health hazard for Lindeners. Currently, the company is constructing a new Refractory Kiln #15 and the new Dryer Kiln #16. These are expected to be completed in 2022. Yu noted that these expansion of the production will result in the additional employment of Guyanese. “This investment demonstrates BOSAI’s confidence in the Guyanese economy and workforce,” a release from the company stated.
Minister Bharrat said his government embraces development and investment, and that he was very impressed with BOSAI’s work.
