Siemens AG president and chief executive officer described on Tuesday 24/7/2018 President Abdel Fattah El Sisi as the best negotiator he has ever met, thanking the Egyptian president for his constant support and wish to offer the best for his people.
Addressing the inauguration ceremony of a number of national projects in the field of electricity and renewable energy, Joe Kaeser said three years ago Siemens pledged to support and increase Egypt's power generation potentials by more than 40%. The company also promised to reach that percentage in a record time, he said, expressing his great pride that the Siemens team has honored their pledges.
Siemens men worked seriously, have great partners and are strongly supported by the Egyptian government, he said, noting today's inauguration of three highly efficient combined cycle power plants in the New Administrative Capital, Beni Sueif and El Borollos. Each plant represents by itself the largest gas station that generates electricity in the world. "Not just the largest but also the fastest."
"In less than two years and a half we did this together," he said.
He pointed out that today's inauguration ceremony is the culmination of the hard work of 24,000 people for the same purpose and for the same achievement. "We are celebrating this together today," he noted.
He thanked the Egyptian president for his wish to launch this project which is not for himself but for his people and to make Egypt a better state.
He also thanked the Egyptian authorities and the ministries of electricity and petroleum for their endless support and the large quantities of sand that were removed in a record time.
He thanked the minister of finance for his support and for providing the necessary funding to complete the project.
