مجموعة كول أند أويل تضمن تمويلا بقيمة مليار درهم إماراتي لمحطتها “موتيارا للطاقة الحرارية”

دبي، في 23 ديسمبر ،كانون الأول / بي أر نيوز واير/ ایشیانیٹ باکستان — يسر مجموعة كول أند أويل  Coal & Oil (C&O) ،ومقرها دبي، أن تعلن أنها ضمنت تمويلا إضافيا بقيمة مليار درهم إماراتي تقريبا (250 مليون دولار أمريكي )، لإتمام محطتها المستقلة للطاقة (IPP) بقدرة 1200 ميجا وات، والتي هي حاليا تحت الإنشاء في توتيكورين، تاميل نادو،الهند.

وتهدف محطة موتيارا للطاقة الحرارية الجاري انشائها في مقاطعة توتيكورين، تاميل نادو، إلى المساهمة في سد نقص في الطاقة يقدر بـ 5 آلاف ميجا وات في هذه الولاية. وتدين المحطة في انشائها إلى شركة كوستال إينيرجين برايفت ليمتد  Coastal Energen Pvt Ltd ، وهي شركة توليد الطاقة الرئيسية لمجموعة كول أند أويل، وربما تكون ثاني أكبر مستثمر خاص بالمنطقة، بنفقات رأسمالية تتجاوز 25ر4 مليار درهم إماراتي ( 1ر1 مليار دولار ). وسوف تستفيد محطة الطاقة المستقلة من قربها من توتيكورين وهي مدينة كبرى وميناء كبير على السواء، فضلا عن الاتصال الممتاز برا وجوا وعبر السكك الحديدية. وهي تعتبر حاليا المشروع العملاق الأول والأوحد الذي تم تدشينه من بين 30 مشروعا تم التخطيط لها خلال الـ15 عاما الماضية.

وقال السيد أحمد بخاري، مؤسس ورئيس والمدير التفيذي لمجموعة كول أند أويل، معلقا على الإمكانات الهائلة للمشروع  أن ” الهند، وتحديدا، ولاية تاميل نادو، تواجه حاليا نقصا حادا في الطاقة. وسيكون مشروعنا للطاقة  قادرا على التخفيف جزئيا من المصاعب التي تواجهها الولاية. وفي الواقع، فإننا ملتزمون بتزويد شبكة كهرباء الولاية  بجزء كبير من انتاجنا من الطاقة”.

 وفي الوقت الراهن، حصل أكبر بناء في المنطقة، وهو محطة موتيارا للطاقة، على تمويل بقيمة 25ر3 مليار درهم إماراتي من اتحاد البنوك الهندية برئاسة بنك الدولة الهندي.

   وستمثل هذه الموافقة الأخيرة مساهمة في التمويل حتى النهاية وتلبي التصاعد في التكاليف والذي نتج، من بين أمور أخرى، عن الانخفاض الحاد مؤخرا في قيمة الروبية الهندية. ومن المقرر انجاز محطة توليد الكهرباء بحلول شهر يونيو/ حزيران عام 2014.

 تعد مجموعة كول اند أويل   Coal & Oil شركة متكاملة للطاقة ،برأس مال 750 مليون دولار، وتنخرط في مختلف نواحي إمدادات الطاقة، ومن بينها تجارة الفحم، والتعدين، والشحن والخدمات اللوجستية وتوليد الطاقة. وقد أنشئت المجموعة في دبي عام 1998، وهي واحدة من أكبر موردي الفحم إلى الهند. وأول مشاريعها للطاقة، عبر فرعها، كوستال إينريجين برايفت ليميتد  Coastal Energen Pvt Ltd ، هو شركة Energy Management  التي تمثل توسعا منطقيا للشركة في الصميم.

Horizon Compact is an easily installed high-capacity, packet microwave system that integrates the radio and modem into a single outdoor unit, eliminating rack congestion and minimizing collocation space. Horizon Compact’s 800 Mbps capacity per link, Hitless Automatic Adaptive Modulation, and ring/mesh support mean maximum performance and throughput, as well as sophisticated remote management and troubleshooting features that lend to lifecycle cost savings.
