Clarification from China Harbour Engineering

China Harbour Engineering Company Ltd (CHEC) yesterday sent a clarification on a news item headlined “Gorai River Dredging: New project taken up at Tk 969 crore” that was printed on April 7, 2018. In a statement, the China-based company said CHEC was awarded the job “Dredging of Gorai River (1st Year Capital Dredging and 2nd Year Maintenance Dredging) of “Gorai River Restoration Project (Phase-ii)” of Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) under the Ministry of Water Resources of the Govt of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh against contract agreement No. GRRP-01/2010-11, Dated: 20-09-2010” through a competitive bidding procedure.

“Accordingly, CHEC successfully completed the capital dredging in June 2011, maintenance dredging in May 2012 and handed over the project to BPWD. Being satisfied with the job BWDB awarded CHEC a certificate of successful performance on February 6, 2013. It needs to be mentioned here that like in other dredging projects around the globe, there was no ‘defect liability period’ clause in the agreement,” added the statement.
