    Indeed, I don't disagree - just noting the challenge.

    Although to be fair the contract for the boiler is between the Patriot Group and HBSS and essentially the buck stops there with control of sub-contractors, although it would be foolish to just assume that HBSS have gone through all the hoops with regards to quality and blindly let them get on with it. Hopefully now they have had their fingers burned somewhat elsewhere a more active role in all aspects of quality control will be taken.

    I think the point is well made, and it is exacerbated in this sector as most counterparties are effectively men of straw, so remedies, if say a major component was found to be defective, may be limited.
