Another 150 Jamaica Urban Transit Company Limited (JUTC) buses are to see improvement in performance through the continued implementation of an oil-filtration system.
Cabinet has approved the award of a $251.55-million contract for the supply of the Elhydro Kleenoil Bypass Filtration System to the State-run bus company.
Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Hon. Fayval Williams, who made the disclosure at Wednesday’s (December 9) post-Cabinet press briefing informed that the contract covers the provision of technical and professional advice, materials and all attendant operations in the implementation of phase three of the Elhydro Kleenoil Bypass Filtration System Project.
The system, which enhances engine performance, is effective for internal combustion engines, hydraulic applications and automatic transmissions.
Further, it can eliminate water and particle contamination, extending oil life up to five times and hydraulic oil up to 10 times, reduce engine wear and component wear, and dramatically reduce downtime.
The system is effective for vehicles utilised in industries such as construction, trucking, marine, mining, military, agriculture, automotive, and power generating.
In the meantime, Minister Williams informed that Cabinet also approved the award of a $152.2-million contract to Marksman Limited for the provision of security guard services at the 10 Passport Immigration and Citizenship Agency (PICA) locations islandwide.
Additionally, the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) is to receive a fire truck, following Cabinet’s approval of the award of a contract valued at US$751,082 to National Safety Limited for the supply and delivery of the unit.
