Minister Dusa: American side starts work on Deveselu military base next month
Minister of Defence Mircea Dusa said on Monday, at Deveselu, Olt County (southern Romania), that in early October the American partners would begin work on the Deveselu military base.'In a very short time span, we shall be there with the American side, of course for the American side to start work on the base proper. Probably early next week,' said Minister Dusa.
Monday he visited the base at Deveselu, where the Romanian servicemen work to make some arrangements the Ministry of Defence must ensure, such as the fence surrounding the military base, a road in the near vicinity that will be used for patrolling, a level crossing, etc.
He also said that there were some more tings that must be made by the Romanians at Deveselu, which pertain to making the area more secure, to creating some optimum conditions for the Romanian servicemen that will work on the base. 'We have a few things to do, I am referring to making the area more secure, namely to enclose the area with this NATO type fence, and, of course, the road that should make possible patrolling in this area. We had to finalize this work next year, according to schedule, but I wanted that, once we have the building site here, to make the investment for this year too, considering the fact that in a very short time the American side is to start work on the base proper,' added the minister.
Mircea Dusa said that the Romanian side too must make a sewage treatment plant and the drinking water supply system, which are also on the schedule that was initially established.
'Procedures are underway for a tender for other work that must be done next year, namely the electric lighting of the entire area, the supervision system and making the area more secure and the work that must afterwards be done in the pavilions, namely the rehabilitation of the pavilions and the thermal energy supply so that the Romanian servicemen that will carry out missions on this military base should have normal working conditions. We have made a priority of ensuring the funds for this year and for the next year in order to make what devolves on the Romanian side,' said Minister Mircea Dusa.
