Controversial NeSol to be closed

No Comments

andrew-holness-photo-5.jpgPrime Minister Andrew Holness has announced that the state-run entity National Energy Solutions Limited (NESol) which has been at the centre of controversy regarding its operations is to be closed. He made the announcement at Monday morning's media briefing.

Holness said the operations of other entities which fall under the Energy Ministry are also under review.

The spotlight has been on NESol following allegations that it breached government contracting guidelines when it hired Peak Energy Solutions to work on a multi-million dollar project.

Peak Energy Solutions was paid more than $12 million for work, despite the absence of a contract.

This raised questions, especially after it was revealed that former head of NESol Carolyn Warren, and the owner of Peak Energy Solutions, Lenny Gordon, were former co-workers at media entity Nationwide News Network.
