The contract reached by the ministry and the company has been contracted which with the company (and Aartsela) Finnish (world known) for the processing of electric generators with a capacity (30 mega watts) was a leap in quality in the planning and achievement, which has never been achieved in other companies both in the Department of Industry and Minerals or in other ministries of the self-financing, where failure of all attempts by those companies since 2004 and yet for many reasons, including lack of courage to take responsibility.
The power plant project Kufa Cement Factory and its importance to the level of the company and the ministry in general, will be a catalyst for the advancement by companies to self-reliance in the field of electrical energy required for production because it represents the first experiment of this size and success.
The General Company for Southern Cement has sought for years to provide the most basic requirements of the production process and the most important of this giant project which was nearing completion. I was keen that the company associates and the work of relevant government project after it reached all the equipment required within the period specified in the contract was concluded contracts available for that purpose.
Despite the failure of the company for heavy engineering equipment in one of the important contracts because of the re D
eclaration tenders several times punishment was secondary contractor, causing delays in the overall project more than eight months.
However, the company tried to mend this situation through the critical decision to His Excellency the Minister to withdraw the esteemed work immediately and ask the state-owned company in the same efficient work force and have been really fast pace and high efficiency.
The ratio of the overall accomplishment of this project (85%) is expected the trial run in December of this year 2010 with the help of God.
It is worth mentioning that this project requires the operation of more than (150) member will be transferred from a plant of Kufa and the headquarters company of the presence of a large surplus in the staff as is the case in all plants and factories of the Ministry of Industry and Minerals.
We have begun the training of the leadership cadre in some similar projects in the Ministry of Electricity to prepare them well for the management and operation of the power plant.
In order to keep the reader interested and on the power stations in particular and the cement industry in general, we include a group picture of the corresponding space and other horizontal ground the project and some details and we hope to have made an achievement to serve our company and our associates are reconciled to God.
