A Canadian trade mission with interests in energy, infrastructure, and procurement is seeking critical partnerships with Guyanese.
Canada’s High Commissioner to Guyana, Mark Berman made this revelation during a reception held Monday for the visiting team from Newfoundland and Labrador province. He said several companies are in Guyana to either create synergies with Guyanese counterparts or independently provide their expertise for the benefit of the country.
Berman noted for example that BMS North America is on the verge of executing a contract with an internationally branded hotel being constructed in Guyana for its “all-in-one” packaged sewage treatment plant. With the boom in commercial and residential construction in Guyana, Berman said he expects that this is just the beginning for BMS North America in Guyana and the region.
The High Commissioner also noted that K&D Pratt Group Inc. has joined Industrial Safety Supplies Inc. of Georgetown, Guyana to create a joint venture company, Meridian 60 (M60) Offshore Inc. Berman said M60 recently signed a contract with SBM Offshore to provide fire and safety services.
Other companies constituting the trade mission are WTG Canada, OPAS Mobile, North Star Associates, Shield Group of Companies, NetBenefit Software, Radient360 Solutions, DyTech Offshore Project Management Inc., and Blue Water Group.
In terms of key recent Canadian successes, the High Commissioner highlighted that Instream Energy Systems and Iwokrama recently entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to provide hydrokinetic energy. The MoU is expected to support the conservation and sustainable use of Guyana’s natural resources.
Hot off the press, Berman said the Beharry Group, through its subsidiary Beharry Energy Holdings, announced its partnership Atlantic XL. OilNOW understands that Atlantic XL currently manages a wide range of bespoke projects for the oil and gas industry throughout Canada and beyond.
The High Commissioner said the foregoing demonstrates that Canada stands ready to help maximise the energy potential of Guyana while reducing its environmental footprint.
