May 3, 2018, 4:05 pm

Australian Ambassador to Kuwait Jonathan Gilbert was pleased to join mechanical and electrical engineering students from the Australian College of Kuwait on a study tour of the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) Shagaya Renewable Energy Complex, on 1 May.  

Students spent the day getting an up close look at Kuwait’s first 50 MW Concentrated Solar Power plant; the 10 MW Photovoltaic Solar plant; and the 10 MW Wind Farm. Australian engineering and global project management firm WorleyParsons is currently working with the KISR to provide precinct project management to the Shagaya Renewable Energy Complex.

WorleyParsons Projects Director Colum Cantillon and KISR representatives, Eng. Waleed Roy and Eng. Waleed Al-Nassar, were on hand to explain the project assembly process, to discuss the future of renewable energy in Kuwait, and to answer student questions.

Ambassador Gilbert rounded off the tour by addressing ACK students and stressing the importance of sustainable energy in achieving Kuwait’s 2035 vision. Ambassador Gilbert also spoke to students about the many ways in which Australia’s world-renowned science and innovation technologies can assist in reaching this goal.
