Member of the managing board of Siemens AG Janina Kugel, together with regional and pan African executive management held a strategic partnership discussion with the Sudanese Vice President Bakri Hassan Salih Khairi.

“The focus on infrastructure investments and partnerships between public and private sectors remain a major priority for us to realise the ambitions we have for the country. Together with Sudan, we have strategically identified electrification as a catalyst to stimulate socio-economic growth. Electricity will grow existing industries as well as create new ones. It also enables the advancement of social investments into priorities such as healthcare,” said Kugel.

Siemens has signed an operation and maintenance (O&M) contract with the Sudanese Thermal Power Generating Company (STPGC) which covers aspects and activities necessary for the running of the Garri Power Station in the North of the Khartoum and the Port Sudan on the country's Red Sea coast.

Sabine Dall’Omo, chief executive of Siemens Southern and Eastern Africa, said that the O&M agreement is set to minimise the operational risks and maximise plant availability.

On a full time basis, the O&M contract aims to provide the benefits that digitalisation brings to the energy sector, such as remote monitoring and preventative maintenance.
