Electrical work is to be undertaken on the swimming pool at the National Aquatic Centre in Kingston later this year.

The work is expected to cost an estimated $45 million and will include rewiring of the pool.

Speaking with JIS News, General Manager at the Sports Development Foundation (SDF), Denzil Wilks, said the electrical project will be done to sustain the filters that were changed in March last year.

“This is absolutely critical. Having installed the new filters, we have to ensure that the electrical wiring is also done so that there is proper filtration. As it is now, there are challenges with the filters achieving their maximum potential,” he said.

“We have to go through the process of tendering so we anticipate that within two to three months, we should get that (the project) going,” stated Mr. Wilks.

Last year, the filters at the National Aquatic Centre were changed for the first time since 1962.
