South American country Guyana is considering constructing a container
It has appointed the Inter-American Development Bank (CDB) to carry out
a feasibility study on whether a glass bottle plant should be constructed to
President of the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA),
Ramsey Ali said the study should take about two months.
There are concerns that a Trinidad-based glass bottle manufacturer would be unable to satisfy regional demand.
Mr Ali said Guyana would have substantial energy capacity from a 300
megawatt natural gas-fired power plant at Wales, West Bank Demerara to satisfy
electricity demand from a glass bottling plant.
The feasibility study will be carried out by Ernst and Young.
