To support the country’s development, Siemens has established a local company in Sudan. The company, which specialises in electrification, automation and digitalisation, says Sudan forms part of its key plans for the continent and it has identified electrification as a catalyst to unlock the growth potential that Sudan and East Africa has as a region. Electricity will grow existing industries as well as create new ones. It also enables for the advancement of social investments into priorities such as healthcare. Sabine Dall’Omo, CEO of Siemens Southern and Eastern Africa, says the installation of the five SGT5-2000E gas turbines it was awarded to supply in 2016, will deliver a combined electrical generating capacity of some 850 MW for the Sudanese national grid. Three of the turbines installed at the Garri Power Station in the North of the Khartoum, while the remaining two units will generate electric power further east in Port Sudan on the country’s Red Sea coastline.
