Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa), Qatar Electricity and Water Company (QEWC) and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the implementation of an internship-based education and training programme in Japan for engineers from QEWC and Kahramaa.
The signing ceremony, which was held in Doha yesterday, was witnessed by HE the Minister of State for Energy Affairs Saad bin Sherida al-Kaabi. The MoU was signed by Kahramaa president Essa Hilal al-Kuwari, QEWC general manager and managing director Fahad Hamad al-Mohannadi, and MHPS president and CEO Ken Kawai.
Under the terms of the MoU, young engineers from Kahramaa and QEWC will serve as interns at MHPS Takasago Works in Hyogo Prefecture and other locations in Japan. Through a combination of classroom education and on-the-job training, the interns will gain relevant knowledge, skills, and experience in addressing complex situations in their dealings with advanced power generation technologies.
The internship programme is being established in line with MHPS support for the development of Qatari technical experts in power technology. MHPS, which supplies Qatar with high-reliability thermal power generation systems, views the internship program as an opportunity to further strengthen the ties between the three companies.
Qatar is presently focusing its resources into the creation and enhancement of a broad range of new industrial infrastructure to meet the demand for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and to help achieve the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030.
As part of that effort, large-scale power generation and desalination projects are presently underway. As part of strengthening the infrastructure, MHPS concluded last year a second long-term service agreement (LTSA) covering eight of its M701F gas turbines in operation in the gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power generation facility of the Independent Water and Power Project (IWPP) in Ras Laffan Industrial City.
