Trinidad: Full speed ahead with Alutech facility

AFTER being in abeyance for some eight years at significant financial loss to TT, the Prime Minister yesterday declared the long-awaited Alutech Research and Development Facility has finally resumed, “full speed ahead.”

He was delivering the feature address at the launch of the $87 million aluminium facility at Tamana InTech Park, Wallerfield.

Dr Rowley said the project, which is expected to become operational in the next 18 months, would contribute significantly to TT’s economic diversification thrust.

However, the PM said had it not been for the former People’s Partnership Government’s decision to stop the project when it came into office in 2010, TT would already have been making its mark in the global aluminium sector.
