Colombo (News 1st); Sino Soar Hybrid (Beijing) Technology Co. Limited which is the company awarded with the Mini-Grid Projects in Northern Sri Lanka on Monday (22) firmly opposed any interference by a third party over its winning bid by SINOSOAR-ETECHWIN JV.

It said the consortium learned from the media that a third party protested against the decision of the Sri Lankan Cabinet on the ground of so-called “self-security”, and concocted a series of false information inconsistent with the facts, which seriously affected the consortium’s reputation and legitimate rights.

The consortium solemnly states the politicization of the project goes against the interests of the people and does not meet the manifesto of the current government, adding there is no so-called “security” concern issue raised by third parties.

It added the consortium strictly abides by the laws and regulations of Sri Lanka and the relevant requirements of the Asian Development Bank as well as the Ceylon Electricity Board.

At the same time, it firmly opposes any outrageous interference by any third party without a legal and factual basis.

The consortium sincerely hopes that the GOSL will strictly follow the international bidding procedures to implement the project and protect the legitimate interests of the contractor, as well as its own credibility and international reputation.
