SDG 9 – Industry Innovation and Infrastructure
SDG 9 aims to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation. It underlines the need to facilitate sustainable and resilient infrastructure development in developing countries through enhanced financial, technological and technical support to African countries, least developed countries, and landlocked developing countries. Additionally, SDG 9 targets the increase of access to information and communications technology.
- Implementation of Telecommunication and Security Systems in Zohr Gas Field: El Zohr Gas Field is an offshore natural gas field located in Shorouk concession. Having a total area of 3,765 km2 makes it the largest field in the Mediterranean Sea. The total gas in the Zohr field is around 850 billion cubic meters (30 trillion cubic feet). Given the major significance of the site, the monitoring of off-shore areas is very critical. The installed systems aim to analyze data and take actions that will have an impact on daily gas production. Additionally, they are responsible for evacuation and mass notification management.
- Supply and Installation of Automatic Identification System for Rashid Petroleum: the project involved the design, supply and installation of the AIS system serving platforms in the Mediterranean Sea. Considered as a standard part of offshore facility safety and security infrastructure, AIS enables operators to track and monitor vessels to allow for offshore surveillance and situational awareness, as well as communicate with platforms and vessels located in any area of open water.
- Monitoring and Control Project for Fajr at Al-Snobar’s Factory: The project is considered the first in a series of projects planned to feed Jordanian factories with natural gas straight from the Fajr Gas Pipeline through extension lines. The Fajr Gas Pipeline is considered one of the most strategic and critical projects in the Middle East, as it is the only source feeding Jordan with its supply of natural gas, which is used to generate electricity, run industrial factories, and act as an automotive fuel.
- Equipment Identity Register (EIR) Solution for Tanzania Telecommunications Company Ltd. (TTCL): EIR allows operators to control access to mobile networks, deterring device theft and fraud, and enables provisioning of optimized services based on device type. The solution contributed to the technological advancement and economic growth of Africa, through efficiently optimizing operations.
- Tata Chemicals Fire Suppression System Project: theimplementation of the new fire suppression system were deployed in the Kenya premises. The project is vital for Tata Chemicals Magadi plant, as it is Africa’s largest soda ash manufacturer, and one of Kenya’s leading exporters, where top-notch security and safety measures are essential.
- Supply of Fiber Fusion Splicing Machine for Telecom Egypt: The state-of-the-art machines allow for fast implementation of optical fibers in the field, which is now considered an integral part of the core communication system infrastructure.
- Nairobi Pump Station Project: The project encompasses the design, supply, installation, and commissioning of Medium Voltage (MV), Low Voltage (LV) and Soft Starter Switchboards at Nairobi Pump Station (Ps 21). The project enhances the capacity of station to ensure a sufficient, reliable and uninterrupted supply of refined petroleum products in Kenya and the region. The implementation of this project is expected to enhance the efficiency of Kenya Pipeline Company’s network, further contributing to the evolution of the Kenyan oil and gas infrastructure and services to match the global standards, as a key contributor to the development of Kenya.
