We will try to avoid contract penalties. We have prepared our personnel and machines necessary for the works. In the first stage, we will start the design, and as soon as the project is approved by the competent bodies, we will start the construction works. We would like to start the works even earlier than September. Some works can be executed even before the design or at the same time with it, such as organising the construction site. We will work in three shifts. We are taking into consideration to work most nights”, stated Mr. Mathias KIRR.
