Arab Swiss Engineering Company (ASEC) and the Iraqi conglomerate KAR Group have announced signing a 3-year agreement for the operation and maintenance of Qarachough Cement Plant; a 1.9 million tpy facility owned by the Iraqi conglomerate near Erbil city, Iraq.
The cooperation between the two companies comprises human resources support in which ASEC has assisted KAR in the selection and recruitment of domestic calibers, in addition to the design and execution of tailored manpower development programs.
The O&M scope perfectly ties in with the manpower development scope as ASEC takes over the responsibility of driving the plant's operational excellence. For the agreement's duration, ASEC shall continue fostering the technical competence of the domestic calibers. It is worth noting that the plant handover, from its former operator, has been successfully accomplished and the operation is advancing with a steady progress.
Commenting on the completion of the plant's handing-over, ASEC's chairman and managing director said, "We are thrilled with the growing partnership with KAR Group, and we believe the successful handover and steady operational progress is largely attributed to the mutual trust and perfect alliance."
