Sol has been supporting Guyana’s education sector and the wider Caribbean for students at all levels over the past years.
While addressing the gathering of students, General Manager of Sol Guyana Inc, Earl Carribon said that Guyana is now on a sustainable economic journey which is being led by its natural resources, while also noting that they play an integral role in contributing power to the development of Guyana through the oil and gas and non-oil and gas sectors.
He also noted that Sol is undertaking several investment infrastructures, storage expansion and will be bringing new service stations to Guyana soon, which demonstrate their belief for sustainability for Guyana’s development.
Additionally, he noted that 97 per cent of the staff employed at the company are Guyanese and as such continuous training and development opportunities are available for the Guyanese employed, and that investing in the education of youths is an opportunity to power their journey not only toward building their competencies but also propelling them in their selected field of studies while equipping them with the necessary skills.
The company will provide two students selected from the programme with annual industrial job internship and present an annual prize to the highest preforming student from the programme.
Training will also be done under lubricants technical, which will be delivered under Mobil lubricants. Personal protective equipment for staff and students enrolled in the programme will be provided, and the refurbishing of four classrooms as well as the motor vehicle engine systems workshop will be undertaken, which will also see critical safety signs and mechanic tips being installed in classrooms.
Carribon also noted that motor vehicle engine systems is an area where a significant contribution is made, and leaders in lubricant technology and development are necessary.
He said that there are many natural synergies between the programme and the value proposition of the Mobil lubricant brand, while adding that Sol remains committed to playing its part in the development of a prosperous Guyana.
The general manager added that the company looks forward to the many benefits which will be derived from the collaboration with GTI. He encouraged students to take up the Motor Vehicle Engine Systems programme and to continue to strive for excellence in their respective fields.
