CTN News

We know a little more about the companies responsible for building the infrastructure to house the troops of the Multinational Security Mission in Haiti.

Three American companies specializing in the construction of military infrastructure – Amentum Services, Apen Contracting and DMG Contracting – are actively engaged in Haiti to complete the construction work. Other companies are also involved as subcontractors.

Repair work is also underway at Toussaint Louverture Airport (ATL) to be ready to receive MMS members.

The ATL should be ready to receive the first MMS contingents.

The U.S. Department of Defense is actively engaged in ensuring that activities proceed as planned. However, there may be a slight delay due to the weather forecast for this weekend.

The US Department of Defense, which is coordinating the construction activities, is very confident that conditions will be optimal to accommodate the MMS military and/or police, according to a source close to the Department of Defense.

According to the New York Times, citing sources close to the Kenyan government, the first military and/or police contingents should arrive in Haiti in the next few days. A date has been set, according to a source close to the US Department of Defense, who declined to provide further details.
