The mayor of Cartagena, Jose Lopez, and Deputy Mayor, Ana Belen Castejon, have made â€‹â€‹a visit to Sabic, to make contact and return the visit that the directors of the company and the government team performed in its early days.
The first municipal mayor explained his impressions after the visit, in addition to transfer what they have seen: We've been watching the plant in detail, we talked about the past, present and future of the facility, the jobs it provides the city, county and region, among other things.
During the tour also they addressed the issue of the greenway, and according to the first municipal mayor, are trying to solve, where the old demarcation, which was never railway, but there is and will advance too.
What he has sought to highlight Lopez is the absence of chemical odors, besides the low level of noise pollution.
One of the specific issues that Sabic wants to carry out, as explained by the mayor, is a kind of pipe leading from the harbor to bring material and its realization would help cut costs.
They are now part of the products that arrive by boat and by truck to bring the facilities.
Lopez has continued explaining that are under previous studies with the region and different administrations to bring products directly by the underground pipe, and bring the product through pumping from the port here, so we can reduce the cost of productive process.
Journalists have asked whether the company has any intention of future project, and the mayor said they are carrying out job cuts worldwide, but here is doing a great effort not to cut the workforce.
What they will do is not clear-cover 16 replacement workers will retire within three years.
The media present have also wanted to know more information about the alleged road will enable the transfer of radioactive material Palomares here: So far I do not know, we have consulted the Port Authority, which is the only administration that, for now we have consulted.
We will continue to consult this week.
The first municipal mayor also moved that when the national media do not collect anything, we thought it might be a snake fall.
In addition, thinking with common sense, make a new road to bring a highly polluting material to Cartagena, a BIC area protected scenically, I see an absurd, especially when we have roads in Cartagena underused.
But I will not give any opinion, comment on something because we do not know if it is true, seem to me that remains a desideratum what they say, but not as something objective about what to say.
In short, the mayor of Cartagena has passed we are excited to see how the plant operates, as have their care workers. Hand in hand with them loyalty we have from the institutions with businesses.
