MONROVIA, June 8 (LINA) -The President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of VOITH Holding, Dr. Hubert Lienhard says the company is prepared to work with the Liberian Government in ensuring that the Mount Coffee Hydro Plant is operational in an effective and sustainable way.

Welcoming Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and delegation to the company's facilities in Germany, he said VOITH remains engaged with Liberia and want to ensure safe, renewable, sustainable and reliable energy source.

He said this will be achieved through the construction of the Mount Coffee Hydro Plant and meting the need for mini-hydro plants across the country in the future.

He said the first is ready to be sent to Liberia in December 2015 while the second and third turbines will be shipped between February and March 2016 for installation.

He noted that a contract for the fourth turbine will be signed shortly to start its manufacturing, and that the company is trying to make sure that a 95-ton powerhouse crane is to be sent to Liberia in mid-July 2015 to start operations.
