Power-Gen ME moves to Qatar for first time
Doha, July 30, 2009
Power-Gen Middle East has announced the dates for the 2010 event, which sees the annual exhibition and conference move to Doha, for the first time in its nine year history.
Considered the region’s premier conference and exhibition for the power generation, transmission & distribution and water industries, Power-Gen Middle East will be held at the Qatar International Exhibition Centre, Doha, from October 4 to 6.
Qatar’s power generation is expected to increase by a demanding 193.5 per cent before the year 2018, almost top of the range for the Mena region. The country will account for 1.85 per cent of Middle East and Africa (MEA) regional power generation by 2013, having a broadly balanced market throughout the period.
According to the forecasts the country will experience an increase in generation to 1,609 TWh by 2013, representing a rise of 44 per cent between 2007 and the end of the period.
Responding to this growth and vitality in Qatar and following the huge success of the event over the past eight years, the event will be held under the patronage of Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy and Industry and chairman of the Board, Qatar Power.
The event will be co-hosted by Qatar Power, majority owned by Qatar Electricity & Water Company and owners of the Ras Laffan B IWPP.
The Power-Gen Middle East conference is a key forum for senior executives and industry leaders to discuss a range of topics, from the region’s energy markets, resources and environmental challenges to power plant generation and desalination technologies and operating and servicing plants.
With around 120 expected exhibitors from over 50 countries, Power-Gen Middle East has become the most important annual meeting place for international power executives and operators with interests in the Mena region.-TradeArabia News Service
