KARACHI:


Italian company ENI has shown interest in establishing alternate energy projects in Sindh, especially a solar energy project to generate 50 megawatts of electricity in Sukkur.


The company has expertise in generating electricity from sun’s rays, wind and biomass and intends to invest in similar avenues. A three-member delegation of the Italian company expressed these views while talking to Sindh Board of Investment (SBI) Chairperson Naheed Memon at her office on Friday.

ENI Managing Director Giorgio Guidi led the delegation. Talking to Memon, the delegation members said that the company could also establish vocational training centres to produce skilled manpower for the power generation projects.

They said that their company has been working over 80 countries throughout the world while it had launched its operations
in Pakistan in the year 2000. On behalf of the Sindh government, Memon assured her full cooperation.

Naheed said that the Sindh government is encouraging companies working on the alternate energy projects and all-out support is being extended in this regard.
