Le secteur industriel égyptien menacé par le manque de ressources énergétiques

Le secteur industriel égyptien menacé par le manque de ressources énergétiques | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

By MONA DIAA and MEDHAT ADEL

CAIRO: Citadel Capital warned for the possibility of halting the industrial sector in Egypt due to a shortage in energy, the representative member of the company’s Energy Department stated during the ninth annual conference on restructuring institutions held by the Egyptian National Competitiveness Council (ENCC) on Sunday.

Citadel Capital representative Mohamed Shoeb called on attendees to prepare a crisis-management plan for energy production until 2020 before the next upcoming elections, due in a couple of months.

According to Shoeb, solar energy must be utilized at least by 20 percent, especially in residential areas where it would contribute to energy saving by 25 percent over the next five years.

Shoeb added that the government monopolized energy so far with subsidized prices, but that it cannot face the challenge without the contribution of the public sector, in which there is not much competitiveness, adding that energy resources are crucial for economic growth.

Shoeb also reminded that current energy production rates are in decline to less than 5,00 square feet of gas produced on a daily basis. Oil companies are more focused on petroleum imports, which only result in an accumulation of debt to foreign companies and a lack of new investments, Shoeb said, pointing out that if it was not for Gulf support, Egypt would have suffered a severe oil crisis.

Citadel Capital is one if the leading investment companies in the Middle East and Africa, mainly in energy, transportation, agrifoods, mining, and cement.

Le Ministre de l'Industrie discute avec des sociétés Emiratis d'un projet industriel susceptible de créer 30 000 emplois | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

L’intérêt porté par les investisseurs arabes et étrangers pour l’Egypte confirme l’importance du pays et de sa position sur le marché sur un plan régional et international.

Le gouvernement est soucieux d'offrir aux investisseurs des incitations telles que des subventions à l'exportation, ou la mise à disposition de terrains, ou encore l'accès à l'énergie à des prix compétitifs.

L’ingénieur Hatem Saleh, Ministre de l'Industrie et du Commerce Extérieur, a rencontré un groupe d’investisseurs Emiratis, intéressés par la mise en place en Egypte d’un complexe industriel pour la production de sucre blanc à partir de la betterave.

La capacité de production du complexe serait de 400 mille tonnes, avec des investissements s'élevant à environ 500 millions de dollars. L’investissement inclura également  la mise en place d'un projet agricole sur une superficie de 200 hectares pour la culture de la betterave, ainsi que d'autres cultures telles que le blé et le maïs, afin de combler le déficit alimentaire et d'augmenter la surface agricole.

Selon le Ministre, ce projet est l'un des plus grands investissements agro-industriel en Égypte et vise à réduire les importations de l'Egypte en sucre.  Il est à rappeler que l’Egypte est l’un des plus gros importateurs de sucre dans le monde.

 
Le Ministre a souligné que le projet sera réalisé sur une superficie de 100 feddans (acres), sur un terrain fourni par le Gouverneur d’Ismaliya dans la zone industrielle d’Abu Khalifa, et permettra la création d'environ 30 mille emplois.

NBE Allocates EGP 120 Mln For 55 Brick Factories In Behira

NBE Allocates EGP 120 Mln For 55 Brick Factories In Behira | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The National Bank of Egypt (NBE) allocated EGP 120 million to finance 55 brick factories in Behira City in order to make them run on natural gas instead of heavy fuel oil.

This move is consistent with the bank’s strategy which seeks to reduce the emissions produced by factories powered by diesel and heavy fuel oil.

Sources said the bank received requests from five other factories during this month after 50 brick factories submitted requests to NBE to receive such finance last year.

The bank coordinates with gas companies to conduct field survey for these factories in order to start the project slated to be financed by next February.

In addition, NBE had earlier financed 200 brick factories in Arab Abu Saed in Giza to use natural gas instead of heavy fuel oil and diesel. The cost of delivering natural gas to these factories is about EGP 140 million. NBE had also allocated EGP 120 million for 130 brick factories in Al Saf City in Helwan.

CEMEX cement joins new Nile project

CEMEX cement joins new Nile project | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

CEMEX Readymix has signed a distribution agreement with Assiut Cement in one of the largest development projects currently underway in Egypt.

The project is expected to create 3,000 new job opportunities during its implementation, in addition to 500 permanent jobs after its completion, and is due to be completed after five years.

It will be funded by EGP 2.4bn worth of investments from both the Egyptian and German governments.

The project seeks to better help navigate and direct the waters of the Nile River in an attempt to provide the country with adequate water resources for future generations.

It will also include the establishment of a number of environmentally friendly electric generators expected to produce 32 megawatts of energy, serving the provinces of Assiut, Minya, Beni Suef, Fayoum and Giza.

The plan is also expected to help irrigate 1.7 million acres of soil, a territory roughly eight times the size of the state of New York.

Expected to be completed by 2017, the project will include the construction of eight floodgates standing at a height of 17 metres, a hydroelectric station, four 8 megawatt energy generators, in addition to one 11 metre high dam.

Large swaths of the Nile are expected to be dug up as part of the project in order to limit the rises in water level around the river banks in the Asyut province and surrounding areas.

Ressources naturelles : Le Delta menacé d’immersion

Ressources naturelles : Le Delta menacé d’immersion | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Après l’annonce d’une offre internationale pour exploiter le sable noir à Borollos, au nord du Caire, les spécialistes de l’environnement tirent la sonnette d’alarme sur la destruction de l’écosystème qui en résultera.
Egypt-actus's insight:

« Les dunes de sable noir sont une barrière natu­relle contre la mer et les vagues, elles protègent les terres au-dessous du niveau de la mer. L’investissement dans cette ressource naturelle risque d’expo­ser toute la zone du gouvernorat aux dangers de l’érosion et de la submersion. L’Egypte paiera très cher à l’avenir pour remédier à ces facteurs ». Les spécialistes de l’en­vironnement ne cessent pas d’aver­tir contre les répercussions néga­tives de nouveaux projets dans le gouvernorat de Kafr Al-Cheikh, à 130 km au nord du Caire.

Ils s’insurgent contre l’Autorité des matériaux nucléaires, relevant du ministère de l’Electricité et de l’Energie, suite au lancement pro­chain d’un appel d’offres interna­tional visant à exploiter les dunes de sable noir de Borollos, dans le gouvernorat de Kafr-Cheikh (Delta). En effet, ce type de sable est monnayable, mais l’absence de barrières naturelles représentées par ces dunes au nord du Delta du Nil menace de noyer la zone si aucune mesure de protection n’est prise. « Lors d’une réunion tenue la semaine dernière avec le gou­verneur, des représentants de l’Agence Egyptienne pour les Affaires de l’Environnement (AEAE) ont exprimé leur inquié­tude quant au prochain projet dans la zone du gouvernorat de Kafr Al-Cheikh. Nous leur avons expli­qué que le projet consiste en l’ex­traction de minéraux industriels provenant des sables noirs notam­ment le zircon, la monazite et l’il­ménite. Et la compagnie qui gagnera l’appel d’offres sera engagée à rendre 97 % des sables noirs après l’extraction des miné­raux et des matières radioac­tives », explique Mohsen Mohamad Ali, directeur de l’Auto­rité des matériaux nucléaires. Et d’ajouter : « Le projet consiste à exploiter une zone de 28 km de long sur un kilomètre de large à l’est de la ville de Borollos. Le gouvernorat compensera les pro­priétaires de terrains à cet endroit. Cela fait trente ans ou presque que nous étudions toutes les zones de sable noir en Egypte. En 2008, nous avons élaboré une étude montrant que ces sables commen­cent à Edco, au nord du gouverno­rat de Béheira (près d’Alexandrie) sur la côte méditerranéenne, et s’étendent jusqu’à Rafah au nord-est de l’Egypte".

Egypt court confirms annulment of textile co. privatisation

Egypt court confirms annulment of textile co. privatisation | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt's administrative court rejects the government's appeal against the suspension of the privatisation contract for Shebin El-Kom Textile Company. In effect, the court ruling permanently annuls the sale of the publicly-owned textile company.

Egypt-actus's insight:

In September 2011, an Egyptian court cancelled the privatisation deal of three previously public-sector companies and ordered them to be returned to the government. They included Shebin El-Kom Textile Company, Tanta Company for Linen and Derivatives and the Steam Boilers Company.

The government appealed the ruling, preferring to sell the companies, but announced on several occasions it would respect court orders.

This is the second government appeal to be rejected in privatisation-related deals. In December, a court confirmed yet another ruling to cancel the privatisation deal of Steam Boilers Company, currently owned by Orascom Construction Industries.

Cement maker Assiut Cement, owned by conglomerate CEMEX was also ordered to be returned to the state.

After the appeal is rejected, it is considered final and the government must return all amounts it received during the privatisation process and retain ownership of the companies.

The court said that although sales to private owners was necessary due to the conditions placed on Egypt by international institutions in order to secure loans, a post-uprising review of Mubarak-era privatisation procedures raised suspicions of corruption, conflict of interests and a lack of transparency.
