According to the terms of this order from the Amir Kabir Petrochemical Company (AKPC
), Technip will be responsible for engineering, equipment and materials and for supervising the construction of a facility that will have a production capacity of 300,000 tonnes per year, using BP's Innovene gas phase technology.
Seeking the co-operation of IPPs to produce electricity and water helps local governments not only to get foreign direct investments (FDIs) in the country but also brings in the latest technology and expertise to the country, Navneet Kasbekar, CEO of Al Kamil Power Company (AKPC), told Times of Oman.
In an exclusive interview Kasbekar outlines the activities of AKPC, its performance, challenges and the demand and supply requirements of power in the Sultanate.
AKPC is a key player in generating electricity in Oman and is in its eighth year of operation.
