Demolition work at the Palau Marine Development Center (PMDC) at Malakal will soon begin with the first part of demolition  to take place in the old buildings of the current clamshell center in January 2017 after announcing the winning contractor.


The 6.6 million dollar funding project has come through formal proceedings a few years back with the official award of the grant made this year by the Japanese Government to the Republic of Palau Government.

Currently, (CIP) engineers are undertaking site visit at the farm, carrying out the survey at the old buildings. Information gathered from the assessment will be used in the assessment before  the actual demolition.

Various potential contractors are expected to turn up to attend site visits and tender announcements. [/restrict]
