In Memory of David Clancy




IT IS WITH great sadness that we have to report that David Clancy, editor of Technical Review Middle East, has died after a long battle with cancer. David had been with the company for 25 years providing high-quality editing for Technical Review Middle East, Oil Review Middle East and other magazines before them. As a result of David's professionalism, knowledge and application, the titles have acquired a reputation for authoritative and pertinent content. Throughout his illness, David maintained his work output, fitting it in between his numerous sessions of unpleasant treatment. There can be few people who would show the same resolve. His expertise and guidance to others and his quiet sense of humour will be sorely missed. He leaves behind his wife, Antonia and two daughters. David Clancy

Briefly Tenon Property Services signs JV with Tanami Holding Co TENON PROPERTY SERVICES Pvt. Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of security and facilities management company Mortice Ltd, has signed a joint venture (JV) agreement with Tanami Holding Co, which deals with construction, real estate, engineering services, steel and aluminium fabrication and utilities. According to the terms of the agreement, Tanami will initially provide its own facility to be managed by the JV and will provide strategic support in terms of relationship and business development to achieve faster growth. Manjit Rajain, executive chairman of Mortice said, “We are very excited to be working with Tanami and to have the chance to increase our operations into the EMEA area where we believe there are many opportunities for us to develop and grow our business.”

Oman steel companies to increase production OMANI COMPANIES SOHAR Steel and Sharq Sohar Steel Rolling Mills (SSSRM) will expand and upgrade their manufacturing facilities. Sohar Steel’s Melt Shop in Sohar Port is on the verge of a major upgrade to 700,000 mt a year from 300,000 mt a year of mild steel billets, said GN Khadse, CEO of Sohar Steel. A rolling mill in Ras Al Khaimah will be refurbished and relocated to Sohar Steel’s complex. The mill has a capacity of 500,000 mt a year, and will be a continuous rolling mill type facility with slitting technology and online TMT process features. Meanwhile, Sharq Sohar is upgrading facilities at Sohar Industrial Estate. The move to expand operations will aim to enable Oman to become selfsufficient in the production of rebars, which is essential to the country’s growing infrastructure.

ACWA Power and APICORP sign deal ACWA POWER AND APICORP have signed an agreement for investment cooperation on a number of power generation and desalination projects in Saudi Arabia.

Qatar and Turkey aim to improve trade ties QATAR AND TURKEY will reportedly look to boost economic ties between the two countries. Qatar is likely to invest US$12bn in Turkey’s power sector, according to Nihat Zeybecki, the Turkish minister of economy. Zeybecki said, “We are negotiating with Qatar as it has expressed interest in investing in an ambitious coal-field development and power project.” He added that his country was finding ways to come to an agreement to import liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Qatar. The investment project, which was initially set to be executed with the cooperation of an Emirati company, will include the development of coal mines and the construction of several coal-fired power plants at the Afsin-Elbistan site in Turkey. The coalfield, which is estimated to have proven reserves of more than four billion tonnes of lignite coal, constitutes nearly 45 per cent of Turkey’s total reserves. Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) had previously signed an agreement in early 2013, but later opted to shelf the US$12bn investment plan. Zeybecki expressed his desire to explore other business avenues, stating, “In the next 10 years, we plan to invest US$130bn in the energy sector, US$110bn in the transportation sector, and more than US$10bn in information and communication technologies.” Zeybecki asserted that Qatar was ranked above other nations with respect to its foreign economic vision, and had been working to ensure Qatari nationals in Turkey receive longer visas and residence permits.

Qatar has expressed interest in developing Turkey’s power sector, through coal-field developments and power projects

The combined GDP of Turkey and Qatar stands at close to US$1 trillion, but the bilateral trade volume between the two countries in 2013 stood at just US$774mn – less than 0.01 per cent of the combined GDP. Turkish authorities have expressed a willingness to increase this volume to US$1.5bn by 2015, with Zeybecki stating that the trade volume between the two countries has recently been increasing. Sheikh Ahmed bin Jassim bin Mohamed Al Thani, Qatar’s minister of economy and trade, said that accelerated development of QatariTurkish relations was proof of the two countries’ sincerity towards the bilateral plans. “Qatar is a very important partner for Turkey,” Zeybecki remarked. “Both countries have great potential to deepen and strengthen mutual cooperation. “Over the last ten years, bilateral trade has witnessed substantial growth, but we think it is not enough,” he added.

ZonesCorp signs US$100 million deal with Jindal SAW Gulf UAE-BASED INVESTMENT FIRM ZonesCorp has signed an agreement with Jindal SAW Gulf to expand a ductile iron pipe facility for US$100mn in ZonesCorp’s Industrial City. The newly-expanded facility would boost production by an additional 200,000 tonnes per year from the existing 300,000 tonnes per year. Reports added that the expansion will also attract two sizeable downstream investments to the ZonesCorp's metal cluster from Super Cement Manufacturing, Jindal SAW Gulf’s partner. Super Cement Manufacturing, owned by Sanjay Aggarwal, currently manufactures cement in ZonesCorp’s Industrial City. The company has said it would be keen to invest an additional US$100mn through its subsidiary Super Ferro Alloys. In addition, Super Cement Manufacturing is investing in a US$30mn lime calcination plant with a production capacity of 450,000 tonnes per year.

The expanded iron pipe facility will boost production

This new facility will be fully operational before the end of 2014, reports stated. Collectively, the three new investments will attract a total of US$230mn in new investment to ZonesCorp’s Industrial City and generate employment for an additional 500 people.

Investment opportunities beyond oil and gas Rockwell Automation’s senior vice president and chief financial officer Ted Crandall speaks to Technical Review Middle East about how the company plans to invest in the region and why its focus is not just on the oil and gas sector.

“We see significant infrastructure investment, secondary industries investment, and also a developing consumer market”


E EXPECT TO see significantly higher rates of growth in the Middle East than the average of the global automation markets over the next five to 10 years and we think it’ll be bigger than just oil and gas,” said Ted Crandall, Rockwell Automation senior vice president and chief financial officer. Providing industrial automation, power, control and information solutions to customers in more than 80 countries across the world, Rockwell Automation currently credits the Middle East for 20 per cent of its

global business, while the US still holds the majority at 50 per cent. However the company’s plan to invest heavily in and around the Gulf could see all that change. While Rockwell Automation is looking to invest in the oil and gas sector, it is not neglecting the business potential of other popular industries, such as infrastructure, chemicals, water and waste water, and consumer products. Speaking to Technical Review, Crandall explained, “We see significant infrastructure investment, secondary industries investment, and also a developing consumer market that will result in increased investment in consumer manufacturing.” He added, “Our goal is to take advantage of that broadly.” Looking to the Gulf, particularly the UAE, he confirmed there are a variety of infrastructure investment opportunities open to Rockwell Automation, including wastewater facilities, desalination facilities, transportation, as well as both airports and seaports. “We want not just to improve our position in oil and gas in the Middle East, but also benefit and grow the business in all those other vertical industries,” explained Crandall. Expanding its portfolio with new technology is just one way in which Rockwell Automation is actively building on its business. The automation provider formally announced its planned purchase of digital oilfield solution provider vMonitor during ADIPEC 2013. By widening its portfolio Rockwell Automation has added another feather to its cap and in turn can provide its regional clients with a more effective end-to-end service.

Executive Strategy

As well as expanding the services it can offer its customers, the global automation company is working to build on its current client base and move into new regions within the Middle East. Rockwell Automation president for Europe, Middle East & Africa, Hedwig Maes, said, “We want to expand our footprint into a number of countries and the largest one in that case is of course Saudi Arabia.” He added that Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait are also key countries where Rockwell Automation sees significant business potential and it plans to expand its company’s activity. Rockwell Automation has developed relationships with local universities in many parts of world. While it does have a connection with the Istanbul Technical College, investing and tapping into the Middle Eastern young talent is something the company intends to roll out more widely over the coming years. “We would like engineering students coming out of school to be familiar with Rockwell products so when they’re employed in our customer’s companies

“We want to expand our footprint into a number of countries and the largest one in that case is of course Saudi Arabia”

they’re familiar with our products and that becomes a very natural choice,” explained Crandall. “We also work with universities to ensure that we’re getting access to the top students to recruit into our business.” With plans already in action to expand both its portfolio of services and range of clients, as well having acquired a new company and intentions to invest in the Middle East’s young graduates, it is safe to say Rockwell Automation is serious about the growing business potential that the region holds. Crandall concluded, “The Middle East today is a small part of our business now, but a part we think which has great growth opportunities.” ■

Briefly Gentor Resources Inc sells copper assets in Oman to Savannah Resources CANADA-HEADQUARTERED INTERNATIONAL MINERAL exploration firm Gentor Resources Inc has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Savannah Resources to sell its copper mining interests in Oman. Arnold T Kondrat, Gentor Resources Inc’s CEO, said, “The sale of our Oman properties reflects Gentor Resources Inc’s focus on its copper exploration properties in Turkey, which we believe represent a very exciting opportunity for us and the shareholders.” Recently, Savannah Resources announced a US$6.3mn investment from New York-based asset manager Bergen Global Opportunity Fund, which will fund its expansion into a highly prospective copper belt in Oman. The firm is also acquiring Gentor Resources Limited, which has a 65 per cent interest in one block and the right to earn up to a 70 per cent interest in another. The Block 5 and Block 6 projects cover 870 sq km of a highly prospective copper-rich belt in Oman, which is proven to host clusters of relatively high grade copper deposits along with gold credits. They have an indicated and inferred resource of 1.7mn tonnes at 2.2 per cent copper. This includes a high-grade zone of around 0.5 metric tonnes at 4.5 per cent copper from Block 5, where there is the opportunity to significantly increase the resource. High grade intersections reported at Block 5 to date include 56.35 metres at 6.21 per cent copper from 63.15 metres. David Archer, chief executive of Savannah Resources, said, “The deal not only underwrites the proposed acquisition of Gentor Resources Inc’s Oman copper project portfolio and the associated mid-term exploration investment but will also support further initiatives in our core geographies of Mozambique and Oman in our core commodities of heavy mineral sands and copper.” Savannah Resources said that it will kick off a fast paced exploration programme in May this year with a view to beginning drilling in the second half of 2014.

Tremco Illbruck has high hopes for Middle East growth AFTER BREAKING AWAY as an independent company last year, Tremco Illbruck is determined to make its mark in the Middle East market with plans to significantly expand its business, launch new products, and boost local manufacturing over the coming years. With a well-established network of distributors, agents and direct customers in the GCC, Tremco Illbruck, specialises in sealants and building protection and plans to manufacture far more its products in the region. Speaking to Technical Review, Stuart Wakeham, Tremco Illbruck’s sales director for Middle East, Africa and India, said, “Tremco Illbruck has a turnover of US$16.5mn, but we’re looking to grow quite aggressively over the next two to three years.” He added, “Manufacturing will be the key growth area for us.” With just one manufacturing base in Egypt, the company must rely on shipments from Europe and North America for the vast majority of its products, which takes its toll on delivery times. “The more we can manufacture locally the better. I can have the one product we have made here in three days, but if I bring it from Canada it takes seven weeks so it’s a no-brainer,” he added. According to Wakeham, in order to achieve this, the company is looking to possibly form a strategic partnership with a manufacturing company currently based here. Also, as part of the US RPM brand, Tremco Illbruck has the advantage of potential links with various sister companies that already have manufacturing facilities in the MENA region. Further growth is also expected from June 2014

Tremco Illbruck has produced a new range of hybrid compound sealants — SP523

when Tremco Illbruck will fully incorporate the fire protection company Nullifire into the Middle East business. With the addition of Nullifire, Tremco Illbruck’s product offer will grow considerably because as well as a wide range of fire stopping solutions it also specialises in structural fire protection, which is something there is a growing demand for in the GCC. In addition to all of this, the chemical company has announced that it has produced a new range of hybrid compound sealants — SP523 — which it claims is eco-friendly and specifically formulated for the Middle East region. Produced in-house in its factory in Canada, the cure-rate of the product was slowed down considerably in order to tackle the challenge of the region’s high temperature and humidity. The hybrid formulation is also completely free of isocyanides and solvents. This new attitude and focus on expanding business in the Middle East comes after Tremco Illbruck established itself as its own independent company last year, emerging out from under the management of the US’ Tremco Inc.

Briefly UAE investment firm Mubadala saw profits triple in 2013 MUBADALA, THE ABU Dhabi stateowned investment fund, has announced that its 2013 net profit tripled as soaring stock markets boosted the value of its financial investments. Mubadala, which has stakes in GE and private equity firm Carlyle, said that it had earned US$395mn, up from US$128mn in 2012. Stock markets in the UAE were among the strongest performers globally in 2013, with Dubai’s bourse more than doubling in value and Abu Dhabi’s index jumping 63 per cent, according to Reuters. Mubadala also has holdings in firms including Aldar Properties, telecom operator du and cooling firm Tabreed. The gains came despite problems with its investment in EBX Group, a troubled Brazilian conglomerate run by billionaire tycoon Eike Batista. Mubadala bought a 5.6 per cent stake for US$2bn in March 2012. Sources at Mubadala claim that their main aim is to help boost the local economy. The fund has interests in oil and gas, aerospace and real estate, among other businesses. Total assets held by Mubadala grew 11 per cent to at the end of 2013, which it attributed to a gain from last year’s merger of Emirates Aluminium — of which Mubadala owned 50 per cent — with Dubai Aluminium.

Aldar Properties launches three new development projects in Abu Dhabi REAL ESTATE DEVELOPER Aldar Properties has launched three new developments in Abu Dhabi worth US$1.4bn, the company announced recently. “Off-plan sales for the three developments will commence in May and construction is scheduled to begin in 2015,” it said in a statement. Abubaker Seddiq Al Khoori, chairman of Aldar, said, “We are currently exploring 23 exciting real estate developments, excluding government projects, three of which have been announced today as part of the next phase of growth of our business.”

Siemens wins US$590 million supply contract for Saudi Arabia’s power plant SIEMENS ENERGY HAS received an order by South Korean company Samsung C&T to supply six gas turbines, three steam turbines and nine generators for Rabigh 2 IPP combined-cycle power plant in Saudi Arabia. Samsung C&T is building the facility for AlMourjan Project Company, a consortium headed by the independent power producer ACWA Power, according to a company statement. Following project completion in mid-2017, Rabigh 2 IPP will have an installed electrical generating capacity of 2,060MW to supply Makkah Province with electric power. Including commissioning support service and a long-term maintenance service agreement, the order value for Siemens amounts to around US$590mn. The project site at Rabigh is located in western Saudi Arabia on the Red Sea, about 150 km north of the port city of Jeddah. Rabigh 2 IPP combined-cycle power plant will comprise three power plant units. For each of these units, Siemens is delivering two model SGT65000F gas turbines, one model SST6-5000 HI-L steam turbine, and three SGen6-1000A-series electrical generators. Siemens Electric will also provide support services for erection and commissioning of the power plant. A long- term service agreement was also concluded for upkeep and maintenance of the gas turbines. All three power plant units are designed as multi-shaft configurations in which the each gas turbine and steam turbine drives its own dedicated generator. In addition to natural gas, these units can also be fired with crude oil.

Rabigh 2 IPP combined-cycle power plant will comprise three power plant units

Thierry Toupin, CEO of Business Unit Gas Turbines and Generators at Siemens Energy, said, “This order is yet another indicator of the large demand in Saudi Arabia for efficient power generation solutions. Our high-efficiency F-class gas turbine is a perfect fit for the Saudi market. “The Rabigh 2 IPP project expands our already strong market position in this country even further.” Siemens Energy had already announced in 2012 and 2013 the major orders it won in Saudi Arabia to supply the Qurayyah IPP and Jazan projects with its F-class gas turbines. Saudi Arabia presents vast market potential for highly-efficient combinedcycle power plants. The country’s natural resources include some of the largest deposits of petroleum and natural gas in the world. To keep pace with and drive the nation’s advancing industrialization and economic development, the installed electrical generating capacity there today — about 70GW — is expected to double by 2020 to 140GW.

Middle East to spend US$316 billion on public utility projects MIDDLE EAST NATIONS will have to spend US$316bn on utilities such as power and energy over the next five years to keep up with the growing demands of the region, according to a report by the Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation (Apicorp). Demand for energy is expected to surge 8.3 per cent a year until 2019, which is thrice the global average. Based on this increase, the Middle East would have to install an additional capacity of 156MW along with new transmission and distribution infrastructure, added the report. Ali Aissaoui, senior consultant at Apicorp, said, “We have been concerned that under investment in this vital sector and the resulting shortfall in electricity supply could impede economic growth and exacerbate social frustrations.” The UAE government and companies want to expand the scale and scope of public utility

works. Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is likely to spend US$5.4bn on projects, including a clean coal plant and a 1,000MW solar park. Abu Dhabi National Energy plans to embark on its first standalone water desalination plant. Apicorp added that due to an unfavourable investment climate and dearth of financing after the economic crisis, gathering capital for largescale expansion is a daunting task. It stated that credit extended to the region’s power sector totalled US$7.1bn last year. In order to overcome budget deficits, the Apicorp report recommends countries to empower state utilities with bigger budgets and make themselves more attractive to private investment. Another solution to provide funding is to make private investors launch initial public offerings (IPOs), which is happening in Oman right now.

Technical Access Services’ new scaffolding solution UAE-BASED SCAFFOLDING AND access solutions provider Technical Access Services (TAS) has released its new Eco-Deck. Designed for the power, construction, as well as the oil and gas industries, the aluminium decking system promises quicker, more efficient assembly thanks to the fact it consists of just two parts: panel and prop. TAS managing director Craig W Miller said, “It’s an advanced aluminium support system and because it’s aluminium it’s easier to construct, it’s easier to erect physically, and obviously it’s very high quality.” Eco-Deck’s design has allowed for significantly more space below and among the decking, which in turn can be used for more storage or simply more space around on the site while the structure it is supporting cures. TAS is only eight years old but already has over 800 personnel, offices across the UAE, and Miller is confident in the company’s ability to provide quality, safe, and technical scaffolding solutions. Miller added, “Competition is fierce, particularly since Dubai won the Expo 2020 so there are a lot more projects popping up.”

Technical Access Services’ new Eco-Deck

When asked about the company’s main priority Miller was quick to underline the importance of safety. “We invest heavily in safety; it’s one key area that we take very seriously and we probably have a better track record than our peers.” Being a young yet confident business, TAS has big plans for the future of the company. Plans are already under way to move beyond the UAE and open a new office in Singapore by the end of 2014. Looking further ahead, Miller said he would like to see regional offices established in both Qatar and Oman over the next decade.

Briefly MGI signed up to expand Canon ME's professional video business in Qatar MEDIA GROUP INTERNATIONAL (MGI) has been appointed by Canon Middle East to expand its professional video business in Qatar. Canon Middle East has been looking to diversify into new business domains, including professional cinematography and pro-video, and has opted to team up with media broadcast and communications systems integrator MGI, who has been active across the Gulf region for more than 35 years. Anurag Agrawal, managing director of Canon Middle East, remarked, "Having MGI on board as a Canon Authorized Partner in Qatar is a great asset in expanding our professional video business and one tactic to achieving the diversity strategy set at our partner conference. "MGI, with its strong local presence and proven track-record, will support Canon in ensuring that reliable and high-quality video solutions are available to the growing media industry in Qatar." MGI CEO Paul Hennessy said the partnership would provide access for videographers in Qatar to the "best professional video equipment possible", while Hendrik Verbrugghe, marketing director – retail marketing for Canon Middle East, noted that MGI's specialisation in providing system integration solutions, would allow the company to mix and match Canon hardware, such as the C Series, XF Series or XA Series, with compatible software. Hennessy remarked, "The Middle East and North Africa film industry is on the rise and starting to attract the attention of the international community. Canon Middle East is a strong supporter of local projects and the support it provides towards industry workshops and product training allows unknown but gifted individuals a chance to showcase their skills." The partnership will see MGI concentrate on cinematography and professional video equipment with multipurpose technology that can be utilised across a number of platforms, and the firm will look to highlight opportunities for Canon in the Qatar and the wider region.

Middle East a 'hotbed of opportunity' for wireless test equipment vendors MARKETS THROUGHOUT THE Middle East and Africa present wireless test equipment vendors with a host of opportunities in the mid- and long-term as Long-Term Evolution (LTE) deployments gather momentum, according to a new report from Frost & Sullivan. The report, Wireless Test Equipment Market in Middle East and Africa, recommended vendors to widen their local presence through partnerships in order to leverage further opportunities. The report revealed that the wireless test equipment market in the Middle East and Africa earned revenues of US$257.2mn in 2013 and estimated that this figure would increase to US$379.2mn in 2020. The use of high-capacity bandwidth for the new heterogeneous networks deployed in the region, coupled with the complex nature of testing, will add to the demand for wireless test equipment, the report added. "Researchers are developing a new concept combining Wi-Fi with LTE that will revolutionise the Internet era and aid the development of advanced wireless test equipment," said Frost & Sullivan's measurement and instrumentation

industry manager. "This technology will enable higher bandwidth speeds through WiFi more effectively, solve the issue of data packet loss, and make way for efficient wireless data networks." The key challenge for vendors operating in the Middle East and Africa, the report noted, lay in sustaining existing clients and remaining competitive, with the continued use of homegrown, in-house test equipment curbing overall market profits, due to the preference of operators to not spend on sophisticated yet non-critical test equipment. Frost & Sullivan stated that establishing a local presence through partnerships with distributors and channel partners would prove important as companies attempt to gain a foothold in the African and Middle Eastern wireless test equipment market. "Offering after-sales services will encourage adoption," Frost & Sullivan's industry manager added. "Vendors opine that selling is only half the job, while the services and training provided post the sale is critical due to the complexity of products in this dynamic market."

New rules for UAE bottle manufacturers POTABLE WATER MANUFACTURERS in the UAE have until 1 October 2014 to comply with new regulations issued by Emirates Standardisation and Metrology Authority (Esma). "There are 154 small and big drinking water producing and importing companies registered with us and so far we have found that only 18 firms comply with the new law," Mohammad Saleh Badri, director general of Esma, was quoted as saying by Gulf News. "Many companies requested us to give them more time for compliance as well as consumption of existing stock." Esma have audited 134 companies so far and the remaining 20 will be audited in the next couple of months. The new regulations cover potable bottled water and all materials that come into contact with drinking water. They also cover labelling and packaging of bottles, distribution and the actual ingredients of the water. "Every water producing and importing country should make sure they comply with our standards and have the Emirates Quality Mark on each bottle. Every bottle should also have correct labelling, for example if a bottle is labelled as mineral water, the content should be mineral water and nothing else," said Badri. "We are regulating the different materials that come into contact with drinking water, like coolers, bottles, containers, tankers, pipelines etc, to make sure these materials don’t contaminate drinking water. The material used for packaging and storing need to be of food contact grade. "What we have seen right now is that the

bottles are of different sizes and shapes and many firms label their water as mineral, which may not be the case in reality. Through our process we want to make sure that the weight and measure is right as well and the consumers are being sold the right stuff." Before authorising a firm to produce water, inspectors from Esma take random samples from the manufacturing units and ensure the production complies with all aspects of the regulations. Firms not complying with the regulations will face penalties as high as US$27,000 (Dh100,000) per offence and could eventually lose their licences.

Productivity in Saudi Arabia ‘suffers 10-year slump’ A RECENT STUDY carried out by Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Labour has revealed that private sector employees in the nonoil sector, including manufacturing, have critically low productivity compared to countries such as China and India. The study examined ways of helping companies improve productivity, and increase the number of Saudis Arabians working in the private sector. According to Arab News, the study, which revealed a marked drop in productivity in the Kingdom during the past decade, was discussed at a workshop in Riyadh that was attended by representatives of 25 firms from various economic sectors. China and India doubled their levels of productivity during the same period.

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Three 2014

The study showed that economic growth rates in Saudi Arabia were based on employing more workers, contrasting with growth in China and the US that was driven by increased productivity. Attendees of the workshop discussed ways to increase the productivity of construction, manufacturing, commerce, hotels and hospitality service workers.

The ongoing increase in infrastructure is one reason for the rising demand for HVAC (Image source: Éole Wind)

How the air conditioning market is heating up With an ever-growing population and infrastructure development adding to the demand for HVAC systems, how are Middle Eastern countries planning to answer this need while reducing the strain on the region’s power resources?


The GCC’s HVAC market is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.4 per cent until 2016

T IS GENERALLY understood that both the soaring population and huge infrastructure boom in the GCC countries are the key motivators behind the rising demand that the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) market is currently experiencing in the region. In fact, research carried out by market intelligence firm Infiniti last July revealed that the GCC’s HVAC market is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.4 per cent until 2016. The Middle East boasts one of the fastest growing populations in the world. A report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) predicted that the GCC’s population would rise by 30 per cent and reach 3.5mn by 2020. A lot of this is due to the waves of expatriates flooding into the region to take advantage of work opportunities, of which many are found within the construction sector.

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Three 2014

It’s true that while much of the world is still recovering from the impact of the global financial crisis, the Middle East construction sector has built itself back up and now the growth rate of infrastructure development in the Middle East and North Africa region is set to far out reach that of the global industry rate. Much of the infrastructure development can be found in the GCC, where construction projects that are currently underway are estimated to value US$1.5mn, and is being spurred on by upcoming large international events, such as Dubai’s Expo2020 and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. While the construction markets for Saudi Arabia and Oman are worth an average of US$495bn and US$72bn respectively, many eyes are pointed to their neighbour Qatar. With a construction market value of approximately US$203bn, Qatar is investing heavily in preparation for the football world cup.

Andy White, group event director of the building and construction exhibition The Big 5, said, “With a requirement for nine stadiums, 70,000 hotel rooms, US$20bn road improvements, US$35bn on rail schemes and the US$4bn Qatar-Bahrain causeway, the local market is preparing for immense growth in the coming years.” The prospect of hosting an international sporting event in the middle of a Qatari summer has ignited several concerns globally. In light of this, the state and the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, (previously known as Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee) have channelled significant energy into ensuring and developing efficient, state-of-the-art air conditioning systems. Plans released in November last year for Qatar’s Al Wakrah stadium revealed it will have a specially designed spectator stand and cooled pitch which are intended to maintain a comfortable temperature of less than 30°C inside the stadium, and a further special temperature-controlled spectator area outside. Qatar is alleged to be funnelling an estimated US$140bn into infrastructure projects in the decade leading up to the games, which leaves potential HVAC investors wondering how much of this will be fed into the climate control systems. While the growing population and infrastructure developments are a positive for the economy, the increasing demand for power to fuel this growth is and will

continue to put a great deal of strain on the region’s resources. The EIU report also estimated that by 2020 the total electricity consumption in the GCC will have reached 662,859 GwH, representing growth of more than 40 per cent from 2010. In the GCC, where the temperatures can happily exceed 50°C during the summer months, it comes as no surprise that air conditioning systems are responsible for a massive amount of the region’s energy consumption. Figures show that in both Qatar and Saudi Arabia air conditioning accounts for averagely 70 per cent of the total electricity consumption. In view of this, many states in and around the Gulf are looking to adopt air conditioning systems that both provide efficient, up-to-date cooling technology but avoid zapping the available electricity resources. In fact the report on the GCC HVAC industry by Infiniti noted that the market had seen an increase in the use of energy efficient HVAC systems. District cooling is one such energy efficient technology. Using considerably less electricity than conventional means and the option to use sea water as the cooling source in certain weather conditions, it saves about 25 per cent on electrical costs, according to a recent study by consultancy firm Frost & Sullivan. District cooling also consumes less than half of the electricity needed to run split air conditioners. Despite the energy savings, many parts of

Qatar’s Al Wakrah stadium according to plans released in November 2013

Qatar is alleged to be funnelling an estimated US$140bn into infrastructure projects in the decade leading up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup the GCC are still opting for more traditional methods, as split air conditioning accounts for the highest demand for air conditioning in Saudi Arabia. While it has lower operating costs and benefits in the long run, the high costs of initially establishing district cooling could be preventing businesses from fully investing in it. Qatar, however, is an example of somewhere that has fully embraced the energy efficient cooling system. Not only has district cooling provider Qatar Cool opened what it has called the world’s largest district cooling plant, located in the PearlQatar development, but there are also plans to add a third plant to Doha’s West Bay, which already has two plants providing cooling service to almost 50 per cent of the bay’s towers. Qatar Cool business development manager Wael Ayoub recently claimed that district cooling is 30 per cent cheaper than conventional cooling systems and that the company has saved about 64MW through its 90,700 tonnes of contracted district cooling projects in West Bay and the PearlQatar. The UAE has also adopted the technology in part, with cooling services provider Palm Utilities supplying the Palm Jumeirah with district cooling. As the demand on the HVAC industry, particularly air conditioning solutions, continues its upwards climb in the Middle East and the GCC countries, it becomes increasingly clear that the region needs to utilise more energy-efficient systems. Although some countries have already recognised and invested in the solutions, such as district cooling, for the GCC overall it has become not a question of ‘if’, but more a question of ‘when’ energy-saving technology moves away from the sidelines and starts to dominate the HVAC market. ■

AFI celebrates landmark and adds new lines S

AUDI ARABIA'S ALAA For Industry (AFI) has added further product lines to its portfolio. As the power transmission specialist celebrates its 30th anniversary, AFI has expanded its range, which already includes electric motors, pulleys, diesel engines and many other lines. The company also supplies services and highquality engineered products to the oil and gas industry including hydraulic systems, seals and gaskets and loading arms. "We are now supplying Ingersoll Rand products, including their air winches," Brian O'Sullivan, AFI's CEO told Technical Review. "Our people are now certified to do the repair and overhaul of all of these air winches for drilling activities. We have also recently added a complete line of SKF Bearings to our product line." SKF's sales manager, Admir Gafic, added, "SKF works on several technological platforms, bearings and units, seals, lubrication systems and service. The portfolio is really huge and requires training for staff to become familiar with the products and the concepts and the solutions. It's in our best interests to have skilled people in AFI up to the required level and who are able to meet the demands of the market." Gafic went on to hail the mutual benefits of the company's cooperation. "We think it's beneficial both for SKF and for the market," he said. "Saudi Arabia is a huge market and it's very difficult to cover with one distributor. AFI is a well known company in this market, representing so many brands. They have contacts, they enter the market in the proper way, covering all main segments and business areas which are also SKF business areas so it's a Brian O'Sullivan, CEO, very good Alaa For Industry cooperation,

it's logical. We complement each other in a good way." O'Sullivan said that AFI's 30th year would see further growth across many sectors, with the company looking to increase its involvement in the railway and nuclear power sectors. He was also keen to speak about AFI's work with the mining, aluminium and phosphate industries, and the company's involvement with Maaden and Alcoa's new vertically integrated aluminium complex, which will reportedly be the largest and most efficient in the world. "Technical staff from Maaden came to us to see what kind of help we could give them during the installation at the start of the phase of their plans here," he said. "We are fully partnered and 80 per cent of the equipment utilised in the plans, the rolling mill and the smelter are Parker products and we are the strategic partners of Parker. We have a lot of supply and maintenance contracts with Maaden. It's also a very interesting industry." For any company to endure for three decades is a major feat, especially in such a competitive business environment as Saudi Arabia. AFI, which is headquartered in Dammam, employs around 1,200 people across 18 offices, 14 of which are in Saudi Arabia and four overseas. O'Sullivan said that the company's continuing success was down to a variety of factors. "Every day is new for us," he explained. "We know all of the companies, and we know what people are looking for and when there's a shortage in Saudi Arabia, they are happy that they can talk to a party who has all these contacts. Plus we have the supply chain, we have the import chains of course, so we can act quickly because we don't deal with sub-dealers and we have direct contacts with our factories in Europe and in the US." AFI started as a distributor for hydraulic components and seals in Dammam in 1984 and has since grown and opened new branches in Riyadh and Jeddah. The company opened its first overseas branch in Bahrain in 1993 and continued its global expansion by opening further branches in Kuwait, Qatar, and the US. To support its customers, AFI has also established service workshops in branches like Riyadh, Jeddah, Jubail and Yanbu.

Kirloskar’s power overdrive Kirloskar has had a significant presence in the Middle East for decades and started its diesel generator business in Saudi Arabia in collaboration with Abdullah Hashim Company Limited in 2003. Technical Review Middle East spoke in length with channel partner Abdullah Hashim Company Limited about the booming Kirloskar Green genset business in Saudi Arabia.


ncorporated in 1946, Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd. (KOEL) is the flagship company of Kirloskar Group which is India’s leading, multi-product, multi-location, diversified engineering business conglomerate having net worth of US$1.6bn. KOEL has four state-of-the-art manufacturing units in India that offer world-class products. Today KOEL is an acknowledged leader in the manufacturing of diesel engines, agricultural pump sets and generating sets with substantially strong presence in the international markets. KOEL specialises in the manufacture of both air-cooled and liquid-cooled diesel engines and generating sets across a wide range of power output from 5kVA to 5200kVA. ‘Kirloskar Green Genset’ is amongst the market leader and most preferred brand among customers in the power generation industry globally. The company’s growing global footprint is complemented by a global network of offices, representatives and strong channel partner network strategically positioned. KOEL is poised to effectively assist all power needs of individuals, small to big sized business and industries, ensuring prompt sales, delivery, installation, service and spares requirements, whenever and wherever they are required. Technical Review Middle East (TRME) spoke with Azizurrab, General Manager, Abdullah Hashim Company Limited, about the booming Kirloskar Green genset business in Saudi Arabia. TRME: What is the status of diesel genset industry in Saudi Arabia? Azizurrab: The genset industry in Saudi Arabia is by and large very good. This is attributed mainly

due to two reasons — power deficit in the country and the quantum of new construction activities coming up in the Kingdom. All the industries require gensets and the last five years have been good business. We hope that business will remain promising in the coming three to four years as well. The country has sanctioned US$1 trillion for infrastructure projects. It’s a promising market in the construction segment and as you know all construction sites require gensets for operations. According to Saudi Arabia Diesel Generators Market Forecast & Opportunities 2018, the demand for medium capacity diesel generators in Saudi Arabia is playing a vital role in supporting the market growth, as these generators are used in a wide range of other applications such as healthcare, data centers, telecom, etc. How has the growth percentage been in the genset industry? The growth rate varies for different companies and it depends on the genset range sold. In Kirloskar, we sell gensets from 17kVA up to 500kVA only, whereas the genset industry in general sells from 2kVA to 3MW-4MW. The total growth has been 10 per cent to 12 per cent over the last three years in the company. Higher kVA requirements can be catered by using multiples Kirloskar Green sets. You have been associated with Kirloskar for more than a decade. How has the journey been? Kirloskar’s business, in terms of engines, has been there since decades and the company represented itself in the agriculture industry selling high quality engines and pumpsets. However the

Azizurrab, GM of Abdullah Hashim Company

company’s association with Abdullah Hashim Company Limited started with Kirloskar in 2003 for the genset business. It has been a tremendous growth from 29 units in 2003, the company sells 1,000 diesel genset units per year in the Kingdom. It has been a substantial growth in terms of numbers and acceptability of the Kirloskar Green brand. The main barrier for Kirloskar in the Middle East and Saudi Arabia was the country of origin. The barrier has been removed due to the quality of the products offered backed with best in the class service and abundant availability of spares. We have a good business running in Saudi Arabia and mutually we have great regards for each other. What are the industries that Kirloskar caters to in the Kingdom? You name it and we are present there. We cater to the needs of construction companies; contractors, be it maintenance and utility; agricultural firms, security forces, ministries, hotels, residential, telecoms and so on. In terms of competition, where does Kirloskar stand in Saudi Arabia? Name any genset company and it is represented in Saudi Arabia and we can tell you that Kirloskar has a better reach than any other big names. Kirloskar is a value-for-money product and acknowledges itself to be completely Indian. The best part of Kirloskar is that it is an engine manufacturer and the gensets are manufactured in-house in the company’s factory, with just the alternator being sourced. The uniqueness of Kirloskar is that they manufacture engines as well as generators.

Kirloskar Green Genset

Kirloskar operations in Saudi Arabia

Can you please detail us with the different kinds of gensets that Kirloskar manufactures? There are two types of gensets liquid-cooled and air-cooled. The liquid-cooled version is very popular in Saudi Arabia as well as worldwide. Their cooling of the engines is through the radiator. The air-cooled does not have any liquid cooling system. It cools down the engine through the natural air. Air-cooled gensets are mainly used in industries where the availability of water is scarce. It requires less maintenance. So air-cooled is much suitable than liquid-cooled genset. There are very less suppliers of air-cooled gensets worldwide and Kirloskar is one of them. What are the projects that Kirloskar has been involved in the country and new products, if any? We have plans to launch 400kVA and 600kVA gensets in 2014. The 500kVA genset was launched last year. We also have 700kVA and 1MW sets planned for next year. So for the next three years gensets ranging from 17kVA to 1MW will be introduced to cater to all the industries. In the process, we have also introduced Kirloskar HA Series Air-cooled Diesels for catering to dewatering application. In construction segment, DG sets and dewatering pumps goes hand in hand, complimenting each other thereby offering solution to the customers under a single roof. What is the unique selling point (USP) of Kirloskar? Kirloskar has reliable channel partners who offer 24/7 after-sales service. The company gives the best in class warranty terms. The after-sales service is provided by Abdullah Hashim Company and there is a 24/7 mobile workshop that provides assistance throughout the Kingdom. We have wide network of service locations. No other genset company has such reach when it comes to having a well-organized and extensive service network, supported with well trained and efficient service engineers and technicians within the country. Quick and efficient service ensures minimum down time for our valued customers. The reliability of the

products has also been consistent for the several decades. This testifies excellent and consistent quality of products manufactured by KOEL. Please throw some light on the Kirloskar Green Genset. In the recent past, Kirloskar has come up with a concept of ‘Kirloskar Green Genset’. It is the concept based on how environmental-friendly the genset is and the company has adopted the best available industry norms in terms of emission control. That is why the customers have come to the conclusion that Kirloskar has the most environment-friendly sets in India as well as abroad. Kirloskar engines comply with current emission norms and are future ready for forthcoming CPCBII emission norms All the gensets are manufactured in Kagal, Kolhapur in India. India has got very strict laws for emissions but in Saudi Arabia laws are relatively lenient. So, the gensets that are manufactured for Indian market are suitable for our market too. Kirloskar Green Genset is recognized as one of the world’s leading and largest selling generating set brands. Kirloskar has been instrumental in developing the latest technology driven products to suffice power requirements of every individual customer from different market segments. We provide reliable and high quality products at competitive cost. The company also has the capability of manufacturing alternative fuel gensets, which efficiently run on bio-diesel, biogas, SVO (straight vegetable oil) and natural gas. How important is channel partnership for Kirloskar? Kirloskar has channel partners throughout the Middle East. The understanding of the manufacturer and the channel partners is transparent and very good. When a channel partner needs the support from KOEL for the products, they whole heartedly extend all possible support. Kirloskar have a well-defined criterion and norms while appointing channel partners to make sure that after sales support is provided in all ways during warranty and post warranty. That’s how

Kirloskar define their partners. There are 12 sales point in total and three being in major cities of Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam. Kirloskar has representation all over the kingdoms as well as a huge network of dealers. Please detail the future expansion strategies of the company. We have expansion with respect to the range in the genset market. Most of the competitors have a complete range of gensets, whereas it is slightly limited as to what Kirloskars has to offer today. The company has decided that they will go up to a range of 1MW, where they will cater at least 60 per cent of the market share. We have to sustain existing market as well as target growth in the segment from lower range of 17kVA to 500kVA and build markets up to 1MW. Kirloskar has some of the biggest names associated with Saudi Binladen Construction Company, Nasser al-Hajri to name a few. We, at Abdullah Hashim Company Limited, aim to be one of the most established and reliable suppliers of Kirloskar Green gensets in the coming five to 10 years. Kirloskar’s history has been very interesting in Saudi Arabia. The Kingdom is very much prone and lean towards US, European and Japanese products. When we brought Kirloskars here, there was a lot of apprehension from the market and people in terms of product performance. It is an Indian product and mindset from the start was that the industrial product coming from this region would not be satisfactory. The turnaround has been tremendous in the last 10 years because of the reliability of the product. Kirloskar has done a lot of support work in Saudi Arabia to establish their brand, and together with Abdullah Hashim Company, has proved that Indian products are at par with the international ones. The barrier of the country of origin that was there has now disappeared from the minds of the people in the country. The biggest achievement is that now people are enthusiastic to buy Kirloskar Green gensets and we are getting repeat orders consistently which in itself is very heartening. The demand for Kirloskar Green is growing manifold. ■

Eaton Smart Grid

Smart grids: The last 30 miles and beyond The global push for smart grids brings to the fore the various challenges and opportunities for power management firms


With the increase in distributed generation and storage of energy from sources, network requirements are changing

MBITIOUS GLOBAL EFFORTS are currently being undertaken to push forward the development and implementation of smart grids at various levels. The first steps have already been successfully taken, but there is still a long way to go. Here, Philip Dingle of Eaton, a global player and leader in power management, examines the opportunities and challenges presented by the last 48km of the smart grid network – from the point of medium voltage distribution to the industrial and residential consumer and into their premises. With the increase in distributed generation and storage of energy from sources such as wind, solar, combined heat and power, biomass and geothermal, etc, the network requirements are changing significantly as energy is being fed into the network at various and variable points as well as times. This trend has a serious impact and is beginning to make life

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Three 2014

complicated for utility companies requiring adjustments at various levels. As a result, Distribution System Operators (DSO) will need to install enough power/copper cable capacity to carry the energy. A communications infrastructure will have to be created that allows smart applications to occur and for the different components of the network to talk to each other. Additionally, software applications are required that would allow a smart way to balance intermittent power generation with intermittent power consumption, whilst maintaining operational parameters for voltage and frequency. The pioneering role of smart metering In all of this, an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), such as smart metering, plays a major role. It enables the recording of relevant data, as well as twoway communication between the utility company and the consumer (residential or

commercial), who is also increasingly playing the role of energy supplier using locally generated power. The key is to bring the intelligence that already exists at the high voltage and SCADA level down through to the consumer, but it can’t stop at the smart meter. To be able to optimise energy consumption, one requires the appropriate home, building and industrial automation solutions to control the individual devices and systems within the building or plant accordingly. Eaton, as a global leader in electrical components and systems for power quality, distribution and control, has been committed to intelligent energy management for years. The company focuses on providing smart solutions right

consumption as not only the amount of energy purchased can be measured but connected appliances can also be controlled according to electricity tariffs via the integrated xComfort interface. Smart meters are able to provide the end user with remote information and control to monitor and visualise energy consumption on things like TV and computers, but could also integrate smart appliances like washing machines, dishwashers and car charging stations to be operated automatically at the most energy efficient and cost effective time. So, looking at what is already reality, and what is still wishful thinking, the truth is that transparency and direct feedback on energy consumption data can be made available with existing technology. The points of

Smart meters can provide the end user with remote information and control to monitor and visualise energy consumption on TV and computers distribution and motor control centres to allow recording of energy usage and support analysis of consumption. This way, the usage can be reduced and the need for information, especially in light of more and more energy audits, can be met. At present, Eaton is seeing a high take up of this solution, especially in the automotive sector. At production plants with machinery that uses a lot of energy like welding lines, each unit is equipped with an XMC module and can thus be individually controlled as needed: slowed down, shutdown or switched onto standby. Another trend in the industry that the metering and communications module supports is sub-metering and real consumption-based invoicing.

Bringing intelligence to the mediumvoltage level – the last 30 miles Eaton SmartHome with xComfort

from the end user and low voltage systems, up to the medium voltage level. Today, Eaton is already able to provide complete smart metering solutions based on proven technology and components in all of the necessary areas such as building and industrial automation, automated distribution, smart metering as well as connecting electric vehicle charging stations and renewable generation from photovoltaic systems to the network. Eaton’s xComfort, for example, is a wireless system for the smart home that has been tried, tested and refined since its launch in 2003. It offers the user an outstanding level of flexibility both in the installation of components, such as sensors and actuators, and in the logical connection of these components (HVAC, shutters and lighting control). In combination with a smart meter, the capabilities are taken to the next level in terms of monitoring and managing energy

energy wastage can also be identified to provide the end user with the information they need to act wisely on it. However, features like flexible tariffs and dynamic pricing, load profiling and power thresholds are still something that will become a reality in the short-term future. In the mediumterm, the integration of smart home appliances, renewable energy sources and EV charging are expected to materialise and will provide a big step towards matching power generation and consumption. For example, should energy rates drop during the day in the summer as a result of higher than normal solar energy generation, the relevant consumer devices could be switched on accordingly, at a time they normally wouldn’t. On the industrial side of things, Eaton’s broad portfolio includes for example the metering and communications module NZMXMC. It has been designed for energy

Once intelligence has been introduced at the low-voltage level, there is still a gap to be bridged to make that information available on the medium-voltage level and allow communication with the SCADA system. In case of a failure, utility companies know where the high-voltage network is down, but they don’t have any details about what is happening at the medium voltage level, (about the last 30 miles) and about which users are connected or disconnected. Today, Eaton estimates only five to 15 per cent of the sub stations are actually automated, where some European countries are more advanced than others. This means that most sub distribution is done manually and the utility company has to send maintenance personnel out to the transformer stations to check for local failure and take appropriate action. This is costing utility companies time and money. As a key first step the utilities should look to adjust network reconfiguration aiming to equip at least 20 per cent of the Ring Main Units (RMU) with Remote Terminal Units

(RTU), so that basic data like voltage levels, load floats or temperature can be monitored remotely and managed from the control centre. Here, the SAIDI (System Average Interruption Duration Index) is the main driver, representing the average outage duration for each customer served and which is used as a reliability indicator by the utilities. Within its comprehensive portfolio of medium-voltage switchgear, Eaton does already have the ideal solution to meet this demand. A new generation of RMUs called Xiria is part of the company’s environmentally friendly and SF6-free range of products and has been designed with sustainability, safety and future needs in mind. It is one of the smallest ring main units of its kind, made with exclusively environmentally-friendly materials, based on vacuum technology and is maintenancefree. Xiria can be used in compact transformer stations for energy distribution, in accessible stations in the utilities sector and in industry, as well as in decentralised power generation systems such as wind farms. The unit is completely ready for use

Utilities should look to adjust network reconfiguration aiming to equip at least 20 per cent of the Ring Main Units (RMU) with Remote Terminal Units (RTU) in fully-automated networks. There are various options available for the system depending on the level of remote signalling

Metering and communication module NZM-XMC for energy distribution and motor control centres

and remote control required. These options are modular, so they can quickly and easily be added as needed. Future RMU solutions are not only expected to provide information at the transformer level, but also include intelligence right down to the individual smart meters. As soon as the remaining Smart Grid politics, regulatory and infrastructure challenges settle down, Eaton is in a position to provide intelligent solutions for the last 30 miles, and beyond, of the smart grid market. â– Philip Dingle is segment manager, power utilities and networks, electrical sector for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at the Eaton Electrical Group.

Middle East 'needs to spend US$316bn on public utility projects' COUNTRIES IN THE Middle East would have to spend US$316bn on utilities such as power and energy over the next five years to keep up with the growing demands of the region, according to a report by Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation (Apicorp). Demand for energy is expected to surge Demand for energy is expected 8.3 per cent each year until 2019 to surge 8.3 per cent each year until 2019, which is reportedly triple the global average. Based on this increase, the Middle East would have to install an additional capacity of 156MW along with new transmission and distribution infrastructure, added the report. Ali Aissaoui, a senior consultant at Apicorp, said, ”We have been concerned that underinvestment in this vital sector and the resulting shortfall in electricity supply could impede economic growth and exacerbate social frustrations.” According to industry sources, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is likely to spend US$5.4bn on projects, including a clean coal plant and a 1,000MW solar park. Abu Dhabi National Energy meanwhile plans to embark on its first standalone water desalination plant.

Riyadh looks to become global energy hub The Saudi Energy exhibition is continuing to help authorities in Saudi Arabia achieve their objective of becoming the world’s energy capital.


“The government has for a long time stated its intention to transform the Kingdom into the world’s ‘global capital of energy’

ATED AS ONE of the largest commercial energy exhibitions in the whole region, this year’s Saudi Energy trade exhibition will be held at Riyadh’s International Convention & Exhibition Centre from 26-28 May. The event is once again being held under the patronage of the Ministry of Water & Electricity with the crucial support of Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), while Riyadh Exhibitions Company (REC) and Informa Exhibitions are joint organisers. Coverage will include all forms of conventional power generation and transmission and distribution (T&D); sources of alternative energy (primarily solar, of course); lighting products with a special emphasis on uses in public locations, and on reducing power consumption generally; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); and the high-tech desalinated form of water supply on which Saudi Arabia relies so heavily. This is closely associated with many of the Kingdom’s conventional power generation facilities.

Saudi Arabia is an ideal place to hold such an exhibition, as it is without doubt the largest single market for energy- and water-related products anywhere in the region – and possibly the whole world. In addition, the government has for a long time stated its intention to transform the Kingdom into the world’s ‘global capital of energy’ – a term encompassing all forms of energy and not just the hydrocarbons on which it has primarily relied so far. Becoming a transport and logistics hub for a total regional market of 250mn people – almost 10 times the population of the Kingdom itself – is another strategic objective, while rapidly developing a series of knowledge-based industries (such as ICT) is another. All three objectives are exemplified within the fast-growing network of new major communities in construction across Saudi Arabia. The new communities include the huge and multi-purpose knowledge-based

King Abdullah Economic City, which is still being extended on the west coast. The city also offers the world-renowned King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) university complex. As a result of this rapid development – and of the parallel growth of the oil, gas and petrochemical industries too – total power demand in the Kingdom continues to grow at nearly 10 per cent annually. Not all of this demand has been satisfied yet; generation capacity needs to be expanded substantially faster than the current rate over the next few years. More than US$37bn was invested in power projects in 2012 alone, with bids on many major new projects in both generation and T&D also being evaluated right now – some of them indirect consequences of previous Saudi Energy events. Inevitably, water supply is closely associated with the power sector in Saudi Arabia. Output from the Kingdom’s network of desalination plants now delivers more than three million cubic metres each day and this figure is rising by six per cent year-on-year. Expanded-facility plants are being built to

try and keep up with demand, with the Ministry of Water & Electricity particularly keen to prolong the lifespan of existing facilities up to a possible theoretical limit of 40 years. Ways are therefore being sought – particularly in the form of new technological solutions on display at events such as Saudi Energy – to make domestic water consumption much more economical under extreme climatic conditions and population growth pressures. A key feature of this year’s trade expo will be a series of daily hour-long technical seminars, all free to attend. The seminars will cover such commercial topics as ‘Pre-stressed spun-concrete poles for local overhead transmission/distribution lines’, presented by Europoles Middle East, and ‘Introduction of self-bunded/double-wall diesel tanks to the KSA’, presented by PETRO Industrial ME. Fully updated details can be found on the main website; the complete programme having not been finalised at the time of writing. The dedicated King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy (K.A.CARE) team is working hard to realise the national

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Three 2014

objective of generating 24GW of mains power through renewable means by 2020. K.A.CARE is also aiming to more than double this capacity by 2032, by which time Saudi Arabia could be a major exporter of electrical power to markets beyond the Middle East. By that time more than 40GW could be coming from combined solar sources, including photovoltaic (PV) and concentrating mirror/thermal. The situation is changing fast, but right now less than 2GW are being generated through renewable energy, much of this at the huge new PV facility installed on Farasan Island. A key supporter of the renewable energy development programme, and of this year’s entire Saudi Energy event, is the Saudi Arabia Solar Industry Association (SASIA). Encouraged by local founder members such as Dar Solar, Desert Technologies and Erada Advanced Projects, the completely independent non-governmental organisation (NGO) is working hard to help Saudi Arabia achieve its national dream of becoming the ‘solar powerhouse of the Middle East’. “Sustainable energy for future generations”, as K.A.CARE neatly puts it. ■

Power and water forum reaches landmark Leading technical conference and trade exhibition, WEPower, celebrates its 10th anniversary in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia this year.


RGANISED JOINTLY BY BME Global in association with Dhahran International Exhibitions Co, this year’s WEPower 2014 runs from 13-15 May. The event is officially supported by Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Water & Electricity and last year other key local supporters included the Saline Water Conversion Corp, Saudi Electricity, National Water, and the Electricity & Cogeneration Regulatory Authority. Overseas support was received from the International Private Water Association, EU-GCC Clean Energy.Net, the Desertec Foundation and UNDP. WEPower has now established itself as Saudi Arabia’s premier technical forum covering both potable water supply (primarily desalinated, of course) and power generation. Consumption rationalisation issues are covered too. Last year’s exhibition attracted more than 130 individual exhibitors, mostly local businesses, showing products and services, and more than 3,500 visitors. Informally, reported visits were made by representatives from the Ministry of Water & Electricity itself as well as from Al Mashariq, Ma’aden, the Royal Commission for Jubail & Yanbu, and Saudi Aramco. From

abroad senior representatives from major power engineering companies like ABB, Siemens, SNC Lavalin and Wartsila were all reported to have been seen. The technical conference itself, usually referred to formally as a 'forum', last year attracted more than 100 delegates to hear the views of 25 speakers, representing both local companies and institutions and technical personnel from equipment and service suppliers from many industrialised countries. This year the conference advisory committee included the deputy minister of water affairs HE Dr Mohammed Al Saud, Eng Nasser Nasser Al-Wohaini, vice governor for consumer affairs/service providers at ECRA, Dr Fahad Abu-Mouli, in charge of sustainable grid integration at KACARE in one of the new Economic Cities, Ayesh AlShemari (representing Saudi Electricity Co in the Eastern Region), and Eng Waleed Al Rumaih (National Grid SA). The conference agenda will open with a formal panel discussion introducing the combined sectors to overseas visitors, specifically 'Targets, challenges and a roadmap to success'. Severely stressed for resources, it is well known that the Kingdom features some of the highest personal water consumption rates anywhere in the world,

Enabling the smartgrids of the future With the lifetime of switchgear often aged 40 years or more, technology R&D must be both innovative and pragmatic – meeting demands for automation and load-related growth, while allowing for the refurbishment of, and integration with, existing assets, explains Sundeep Singh, product marketing manager at Lucy Switchgear.


HE ENERGY TRANSMISSION and distribution industry is evolving. For switchgear customers, distribution automation and environmental responsibility are now high on the agenda, alongside the traditional requirements of performance, reliability, safety and cost. The smart grid distribution network is a critical goal for utilities in helping to manage our electricity needs – now and in the future. Utilities have an increasing need to understand the load on their network and improve their ability to share the load in real time between different networks in order to minimise the disruption of power supply. The ultimate aim is to improve reliability, to increase efficiency and capacity, and to help reduce energy wastage. Lucy Switchgear's job, as a specialist in secondary distribution solutions, is to develop the next generation technology that will help utilities to meet this goal. Only 15 years ago switchgear could only be manually managed on-site. Now, utilities with SCADA systems have extensive control over transmission, and increasing control over distribution equipment from remote locations. The goal of distribution automation is real-

time adjustment to changing loads, generation, and failure conditions of the distribution system, without operator intervention. By providing a better understanding of network loading and an opportunity to manage the varying load quickly, by controlling field devices remotely, distribution automation technology is becoming increasing attractive to utilities and network operators beginning major smart grid deployments. Indeed, global spending on intelligent electricity distribution systems rose seven per cent last year to reach US$13.9bn. Further steady growth of 10 per cent is expected to increase the market's worth to US$25.2bn by 2018. Despite this potential, the utility sector's number one challenge remains in justifying the business case; the scope, complexity and costs of the IT investments necessary means each step of deployment requires careful costbenefit analysis. It is critical, therefore, that switchgear being developed and deployed today is automation ready, ensuring easy integration with existing networks, while not compromising future smart grid developments.

Furthermore, as switchgear has long-life cycles, many utilities currently have a significant installed base of ring main units (RMUs) designed in late 1980s. Most of these RMUs were not designed for automation and could not be motorised for remote automation and control. As such, utilities have two options: either to replace the old equipment with new at high capital cost, or extend the life of current equipment by automating it. Lucy Switchgear has designed a solution to upgrade installed switchgear with actuators and Gemini Remote Terminal Units (RTU) to enable remote operation and control, thereby creating significant savings for utilities and network operators. This is universally recognised as a more financially viable option than completely updating the infrastructure with brand new technology, without compromising the quality and safety of the public or the operator, or lowering delivery efficiency. Environmentally-responsible RMUs While it remains high up on the priority list, enabling smart grids is not the only concern of utilities and network operators at the moment.

greenhouse, as well as potentially hazardous, gases into the atmosphere. For more than 40 years Lucy Switchgear has successfully designed and marketed a wide range RMUs using vacuum interruption technology alongside SF6 gas, capitalising on its excellent benefits.

Lucy Switchgear's Gemini Remote Terminal Units (RTU) enable remote operation and control to the operator

Environmental responsibility has also been rising up the agenda. In switchgear technology, sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas has replaced oil and air for electrical insulation and arc interruption in most new and retrofit RMU installations due to its excellent electrical insulation and noncorrosive properties. SF6 is a greenhouse gas, and there are some environmental concerns about using it in switchgear. Specifically, during arc extinction, SF6 gas is incinerated, producing toxic byproducts which require special precaution while dismantling and recycling the switchgear. If SF6 gas is used in conjunction with vacuum bottles, however, then the arc breaking is done by a vacuum breaker and SF6 is therefore only used as an insulating medium. This method of arc breaking offers a clean solution with no byproducts. Additionally, if the gas tank is designed in such a way that it is resistant to corrosion and can keep the SF6 gas pressurised throughout the whole lifecycle of the switchgear, then the SF6 gas can be recovered and recycled for reuse. This reduces the impact of SF6 on environment, while utilising the inherent insulating properties of the gas. Some manufacturers have started to use solid insulation techniques (epoxy resins) in distribution switchgear, because it is regarded to have a lower environmental impact than SF6 gas. The use of epoxy resins, however, significantly increases the risk of fire and the incineration of polymers will also produce

Safety RMUs are generally used in distribution substations, which are often close to, or sometimes located within, populated areas. Therefore, the safety of local communities and the RMU operators should always be the top priority. All live switching functions are hermetically sealed for life in an SF6 gas insulated, earthed metal tank, providing protection against electric shock and minimising the risk of accidents caused by human error. The Lucy Switchgear Sabre range, for example, has been designed to protect the operator from the front, sides and back of the unit in the event of internal arc. Reliability SF6 gas is non-toxic, non-flammable and noncorrosive, which means: ■ No oxidation (corrosion) of the contacts and screwed joints, meaning there is no gradual reduction in the carrying capacity of the equipment over time ■ No synthetic material inside tank (cast resin insulation) reducing the fire risk ■ No reduction in insulation capacity of unit due to external factors ■ No risk of internal failure due to partial discharge Climate independence Hermitically sealed SF6 insulation means that the unit is completely independent from harsh environmental conditions, including: high humidity; flooding; creepage; pollution – dust and smoke; and saline deposits in coastal areas. The excellent thermal conductivity and high heat transfer also permits a higher operating

efficiency despite ambient temperatures, meaning that switchgear utilising SF6 gas can be manufactured and deployed in almost any region in the world. Ease of installation The dielectric strength of SF6 gas is twice that of air, which means the physical units can be smaller and lighter than traditional RMUs. This has the obvious benefits of easier transportation and installation, as well as allowing for better use of space. Evolution rather than revolution The evolution in switching, protection and automation solutions for electrical distribution has been led by the evolving needs of utilities and network operators, as demand for energy that is safe, reliable and sustainable increases. Investment in technological innovation is key in helping our customers meet this need, but given the cost-implications of replacing old equipment with new, R&D should also focus on how to upgrade existing assets and make them fit-for-purpose. The development of SF6 gas as an insulator used in conjunction with a vacuum breaker in RMUs is a great example of how retrofitting existing equipment can lead to improvements in performance, and should not be downplayed. As the UK moves closer to smart grid deployment, taking a future proof approach to our energy infrastructure and management needs will be critical. ■

Cutting the running costs of compressors Recovering wasted heat and putting it to use is the key to keeping compressor running costs down.

Doosan 25/280 Caterpillar Stage 3B air compressor

M Savings are particularly apparent with electric motordriven rotary screw compressors

ORE THAN 80 per cent of the day-to-day cost of operating a modern compressor can go into paying for the fuel or power used, whether the compressor is reciprocating or rotary-screw type, electric motor- or diesel driven, conventional or oil-free, and single- or multi-stage. Huge operatingcost savings can be made if a reasonable attempt is made to recover most of that energy. Some manufacturers claim that recovering more than 90 per cent is possible. In general the larger the system in use, the more sense it makes to recover all that wasted heat. The savings are particularly apparent with electric motordriven rotary screw compressors, the sort that are widely used by local industries, as

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Three 2014

well as within the on- and off-shore oil and gas sectors. The principal means of achieving real savings like these in North Africa and the Gulf is by retrieving the waste heat produced and using this in some kind of industrial or fluid-heating process. But even on construction sites where this is not feasible, major savings can be made if a compressor is chosen that has casing that optimises the pattern of airflow by some form of ducting and overall thermal management. This allows cooler intake air to be used and avoids the discharge of excessive heat into the atmosphere. This requires a really effective cooling system to be incorporated, usually one which uses water as the cooling and heattransfer medium.

Efficiency An exceptionally efficient motor and direct drive mechanism can help achieve cost and energy savings too; so can an efficient integrated dryer installed at the output end. A top-grade automatic monitoring and control system adds efficiency, especially if incorporated within a master management system for the sort of multicompressor set-up often found in an electrically-powered industrial system. The problem of heat recovery is usually more complex and less cost effective in the case of premium compressors that deliver virtually oil-free air for special applications such as food, pharmaceuticals and other high-end industrial processing. This is because they usually operate at substantially higher internal temperatures which produce much hotter air at the outlet end. Raising the temperature of process water is the most obvious application for heat recovered in hot and arid territories like the Middle East; space heating is widely used in seasonally colder countries.

HVAC controls Making practical use of warm air is normally achieved by installing conventional HVAC controls, fans and ductwork at the air end. The compressor’s after-cooler (and oil cooler, the source of more than half the recovered heat) are used to extract heat from the compressed air, which can be substantially above the

Making practical use of warm air is normally achieved by installing conventional HVAC controls, fans and ductwork at the air end sea-level boiling point of pure water. This nearly always improves the quality and therefore usefulness of the produced air, and extends the life of the machine’s lubricants too. Use of all this recovered heat can be regulated by means of automatically controlled cooling-air louvres, purposedesigned and sized to fit the specific industrial installation and its location, to control the flow of vented air without restricting its essential free flow. Conventional heat exchangers can then be used to perform either space or water (or other process fluids such as viscous oil and mud) heating. This can be matched with complete air compressor systems that are either air- or water-cooled in the first place, but obviously water-cooling is the most convenient match. Near boilingpoint water can be achieved at minimal cost as a result.

Lower costs A further advantage is that successfully removing all that unwanted heat makes the plant room a much more comfortable

place to work in at the same time. Air treatment costs will be lowered, and the chances are that the equipment will last substantially longer, too. A subsidiary benefit of all this is that carbon emissions are effectively reduced at the same time. Whatever type of compressed air system is in use it makes sense for the sake of efficiency to recover as much of the heat produced as possible in compression and make use of it in some productive way. System details vary enormously, but the best way to achieve this is usually to consult with equipment suppliers over the fitting of an additional heat exchanger within the system, one that is designed exclusively for the purpose of recovering and using waste heat and can therefore be safely switched off when necessary. In most cases, the cost of installation should be recovered fairly rapidly – the bigger the system the quicker this will be achieved – and both the local air quality and the operating conditions for your employees (and neighbours) should be substantially improved at the same time. ■

The new truck route will help alleviate traffic

Qatar puts wheels in motion for improved road network The road network in Qatar has received a further boost, with the country’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal), recently awarding contracts to the tune of QR12.6bn (US$3.46bn) as part of its Expressway Programme.

“Once each of these works are completed, the country will have some of the bestlaid roads of the whole region” Nasser bin Ali alMawlawi, president, Ashghal


NDER THE LATEST contracts awarded by Ashghal, work on Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the New Orbital Highway – set to be approximately 145km in length – and truck road between Mesaieed and Ras Laffan in Qatar will be completed by Q2 2017, according to the authority. The two phases together will account for 98km, Ashghal said. Additional project areas include the 11km bypass on the western side of Wakrah, which will connect Doha and Mesaieed. Contracts for the first phase of the project between Ras Laffan and North Relief Road were awarded in January this year. The new contracts form part of Qatar’s Expressway Programme, which aims to provide vital links across the country with 980km of new roads, 240 multi-level interchanges and several underpasses and flyovers.

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Three 2014

While formally handing over documents to the representatives of the contractors, Ashghal president Nasser bin Ali alMawlawi expressed hope that the projects would be completed on schedule for the FIFA 2022 World Cup. “Once each of these works are completed, the country will have some of the best-laid roads of the whole region,” al-Mawlawi said.

New Orbital Highway According to Ashghal, the completion of the two phases of the New Orbital Highway and truck route – which account for more than 80 per cent of the recent awarded contracts – will enable the easier movement of trucks moving between the country’s southern and northern industrial regions. The route will bypass the entire city areas and their immediate surroundings,

effluent networks, electrical and telecommunication networks, street lighting and substations.

Al Wakrah bypass The Al Wakrah bypass, to be built on the western side of the Wakrah town, will have five traffic lines in each direction, Ashghal said. When completed by Q1 2017, the bypass will serve as the main link between Mesaieed and Shamal, besides connecting Mesaieed and Wakrah with Doha without entering Wakrah town, it added. The contract for the bypass, which will consist of six interchanges and a road tunnel, will cost US$598.6mn and will be executed by Indian company Larsen & Toubro Limited. The bypass is also expected to handle the additional passengers who will need an alternative route once work on the Wakrah Express Highway Project is undertaken, Ashghal said. Following the awarding of the contracts, the authority also announced an agreement with Qatar Fuels (Woqod) for the supply of bitumen for Ashghal projects between 2014 and 2019. ■

Specialinsert introduces Keep-Nut fasteners

Specialinsert's brand new headquarters in Turin, Italy


ASTENING SYSTEMS SPECIALIST Specialinsert has introduced its new Keep-Nut fasteners, which the firm has described as a "revolutionary press-in insert", featuring mechanical anchoring that is used to create threaded seats on panels. The insert has been specifically developed for ventilated facades, wall-coverings, dĂŠcor and interiors, furniture, kitchen and sanitary elements fastening and funerary art, along with a host of other functions, and is able to anchor to panels made of a wide range of materials from marble and granite to carbon composites and glass. According to Specialinsert, Keep-Nut offers a number of advantages when compared to other types of fasteners for stone and solid materials, with limited preparation time required for cylindrical holes, not undercut holes, which are easier to drill with standard tools. Keep-Nut has been manufactured in stainless steel and of a threaded bush with a set of elastic crowns and a plastic ring for holding together the parts. The insert comes in a range of different lengths, with or without flange, in order to fit to several different panel thicknesses, and is easily installed requiring an operator to simply drill the correct hole diameter into the material and press-in the insert. It can also be

customised with different versions and sizes, depending on the customer's needs.

Life begins at forty Alongside Keep-Nut, Specialinsert provides a number of standardised or customisable fastening solutions, and offers more than 40 years' worth of experience from within the fastenings field. Established in 1974 as a fastening systems distribution company, Specialinsert has since grown into a leading fastening systems manufacturer with more than 5,100 sqm of space spread throughout offices, warehouses and a manufacturing facility in Italy. The firm can also boast of having a growing presence throughout markets in the Middle East and Europe. This year marks the company's 40th anniversary and as part of the celebrations it will open a brand new headquarters in Turin, Italy. Specialinsert has its very own research department, a test laboratory, and a sales network that operates within both its domestic and international markets. The company has continued to invest in the research and development of new products for emerging sectors such as composites, for which several products have been already developed, patented and launched on the market.

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Three 2014

Additional investment has been made to improve Specialinsert's presence on the international stage, following the recent increase in staff resources in its exports department.

Keep up with Keep-Nut The assembly by pressure of each Keep-Nut insert does not require any additional resins or adhesives like other alternative fastening systems do. The company said that this would allow internal assembly without external dimension, facilitating the handling and storage of materials. In terms of use, the elastic crowns are solicited by axial force, acting radially against the hole walls due to the bending and pressure, avoiding the leakage of the system. The not-through threading of the internal bush assures fastening without the extraction effect due to the possible exceeding length of the screw. To prove the effectiveness of the fastener, the company has carried out a number of lab tests to demonstrate the high pull-out strength performances, with one result showing that granite of 20mm thickness with the correct Keep-Nut attachment has an average pull-out load on a single insert of 490 kg. â–

Project Qatar taps into construction boom This year’s Project Qatar exhibition will once again be the largest single trade show held on the peninsula, with conferences on lighting and HVAC added to the fast-growing agenda.

T Expenditure predictions of US$50bn have been associated with the 2022 World Cup

HE 11TH EDITION Project Qatar exhibition, covering construction technologies, building sustainability and all associated materials, will run from 12-15 May in Doha’s new National Convention Centre. Qatar’s largest single trade show, which has rapidly become one of the leading construction events in the entire Gulf region, is being organised once again by IFP Qatar. This year, however, the event is being organised in association with Advanced Conferences & Meetings, which is arranging a pair of cotimed conferences (inaugural events in both cases, see below). This year’s exhibition will include 27 separate grouped national pavilions. The 10th special anniversary edition last year attracted 2,100 exhibitors from 50 different countries, showing products to more than 45,000 visitors. This year international support is being provided by key official trade bodies such as Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics &

Technology, UK Trade & Investment and Assocham India.

World Cup Fuelled by the Emirate’s phenomenal economic growth – this is after all the world’s fastest-growing economy – Project Qatar always attracts key industry leaders from across the GCC region. Key determinants are naturally the advanced preparations already made for the holding of and construction of new stadiums for the FIFA World Cup in 2022; without doubt the largest international sporting event ever to have been staged anywhere in the region. Expenditure predictions in the order of US$50bn are reported to have been associated with this unique family of infrastructure projects alone. In the longer term, the ambitious growth provisions of the 2030 National Vision are being realised. These include individual contract awards totalling $14bn for this year. Longer term projects described as
