Siemens celebrated the win of its largest ever power generation contract in Pakistan, during a signing ceremony attended by high-ranking government officials. Under the contract, Siemens will supply a complete power island solution for a new power plant - Punjab Power Plant Jhang - that will be built in Jhang, located 250km south-west of Lahore. The deal is valued at around EUR200 million for Siemens and marks the first time Siemens’ highly-efficient H-Class gas turbines will be installed in Pakistan. Punjab Power Plant Jhang will increase power generation capacity in Pakistan by approximately 1.3 gigawatts and provide a much-needed boost to the national grid.

Attended by the Honorable Chief Minister of Punjab, Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif, the ceremony saw the signing between China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) and government-owned Punjab Thermal Power (Pvt) Ltd (PTPL), an independent power producer. Siemens will supply the power island to CMEC, the project’s EPC contractor.

“We are very proud to have the chance to contribute with sustainable and reliable power generation for the future development of Punjab and for the Pakistani people.

Our highly-efficient technology will be instrumental to meeting their power needs within the timeframe targeted by the local government,” said Jean-Claude Nasr, Senior Executive Vice President of Siemens Power Generation Division, Middle East and North Africa.

Running on liquefied natural gas, the Punjab Power Plant Jhang will be built as a combined cycle power plant (CCPP). Siemens will supply a power island solution, comprising of two SGT5-8000H Gas Turbines, an SST-5000 Steam Turbine, two heat recovery steam generators, control systems and related auxiliaries. Siemens will also be responsible for engineering, project management and associated site services. The plant is scheduled to supply power to the grid in simple cycle operation by December 2018, and in combined cycle mode by November 2019.

Siemens’ SGT-8000H is the company’s largest and most advanced gas turbine in commercial operation. It is among the most efficient and powerful gas turbines in commercial operation, with low operating and lifecycle costs. Siemens sold more than 80 H-Class gas turbines worldwide, with 47 currently in commercial operation. The fleet of Siemens H-class gas turbines achieved about 500,000 fired hours.

"Siemens has been a key contributor to major infrastructure projects in the country, since opening its first office in 1922 in Lahore, present day Pakistan. We are eager to continue supporting its development towards sustainable power generation and building a more robust energy infrastructure that meets the growing needs of its population,” said Helmut von Struve, CEO of Siemens in Pakistan.

توقيف 41 شخصا في مظاهرات الجزائر

أعلنت المديرية العامة للأمن الوطني (الشرطة) الجزائرية، مساء الجمعة، توقيف 41 شخصا في مظاهرات شهدتها عدة مدن ضد ترشح الرئيس عبد العزيز بوتفليقة لولاية خامسة في انتخابات 18 أبريل/ نيسان القادم.

وأكدت إدارة الشرطة في بيان اطلعت عليه وكالة الاناضول أن عمليات التوقيف كانت بسبب “الإخلال بالنظام العام والاعتداء على القوة العامة وتحطيم الممتلكات” دون تقديم تفاصيل أكثر حول أماكن توقيف هؤلاء المتظاهرين.

والجمعة، استجاب آلاف المواطنين بعدة محافظات جزائرية، إلى دعوات للتظاهر تم تداولها عبر شبكات التواصل، ضد ترشح بوتفليقة (81 عاما) لولاية خامسة في انتخابات الرئاسة المقررة في 18 أبريل/ نيسان القادم.

واتسمت هذه المظاهرات بالسلمية في أغلب مناطق البلاد باستثناء حدوث مواجهات بين قوات مكافحة الشغب ومتظاهرين بوسط العاصمة خلال محاولتهم السير نحو القصر الرئاسي .

ووفق شهود عيان لجأت قوات الأمن إلى الغاز المسيل للدموع وتوقيف عدة أشخاص بعد تحذيرات للمتظاهرين وتعرضها للرشق بمقذوفات وحجارة قبل أن يتراجع المحتجون ويغادروا المكان.

وصبيحة اليوم نشر ناشطون معلومات عبر شبكات التواصل الاجتماعي حول توقيف عدد من زملائهم قبل بداية المظاهرات بالعاصمة.

وعلقت الرابطة الجزائرية للدفاع عن حقوق الإنسان (مستقلة) على بيان الشرطة بالمطالبة ب”الإفراج الفوري عن الموقوفين وان يتم احترام حق التظاهر سلميا” كما نشرت على صفحتها بموقع “فيسبوك”.
