Cerrejón Reports

For reasons beyond our control, we have had to postpone for a period of 40 days the delivery and installation of the Potable Water Treatment Plant in the indigenous community of Tamaquito II, which was scheduled for January 2017. This delay is due to a contract breach by the provider. This situation led us to grant the contract to another provider.

The delay in the schedule has been socialized with the community and we have planned to make a joint visit to the new provider´s company in the city of Bogota, with the purpose of monitoring the construction of the plant. We apologize to the community of Tamaquito II and appreciate their understanding as well as their disposition to permanent dialogue and agreement.
