Company releases statement on ‘water tank collapse’ video

KUWAIT: A local
company released a statement yesterday commenting on a video circulating on
social media and showing what appears to be a collapsed water tank that is
under construction in an area south of Kuwait. An official source at Al-Ghanem
International Company is quoted in the statement saying that a malfunction in a
temporary metal clamps used in constructing the upper part of tank number 8 by
the manufacturing Austrian company, which is in charge of installing these
clamps, was the main cause of the partial collapse of the clamp while being
installed at the Sabah Al-Ahmad Sea City.

The source
affirmed that the Ministry of Electricity and Water was free of responsibility
over the incident. The ministry confirmed that the contract was signed with
La’ala Al-Kuwait Real Estate Company, the owner of Sabah Al-Ahmad Sea City,
which was keen in signing the contract on adhering to the terms of security and
safety on the site. Thanks to Allah and to the company, no injuries were
sustained, the source confirmed.

“We are
responsible before the La’ala Company for completing the work on time,”
the source said, noting that the incident would not obstruct the project’s
progress. The Austrian company acknowledged the incident and said it would bear
full responsibility for it.
