EEIC wins Fadhili Gas Plant contract

Electronic and Electrical Industries Corporation (EEIC), a power and automation solutions provider and a subsidiary of Abunayyan Holding, has won a contract to provide Fadhili Gas Plant (FGP) with low-voltage switchgear, low-voltage motor control centers as well as customized pre-fabricated substations (e-houses).
A specialist in providing these prefabricated buildings, EEIC has a long history of providing these structures to similar projects such as the Uthmaniyah project.
In line with the Vision 2030, EEIC seeks to not only further expand its reach but also to maintain its competitive edge by working alongside global technology providers and companies such as Tecnicas Reunidas (TR) with whom it shares a long and successful partnership.
Mohamed Tayel, commercial operations director of EEIC said: “Fadhili Gas Plant is one of many megaprojects that EEIC has worked on alongside Tecnicas Reunidas. We have a long history of working with them and are looking forward to doing so once again. It is also a great time for Saudi companies like us to come forward and take advantage of the encouragement and push given by the government. We have skilled workers, factories on a par with international standards and can, therefore, deliver excellent results locally.”
The FGP, located approximately 30 km southwest of Khursaniyah Gas Plant, has a total capacity of 2,500 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) and presents a dynamic opportunity for further developing and utilizing the Kingdom’s gas reserves.
Being associated with a megaproject of this nature is a great prospect for its main contractor, TR that was awarded the project by Saudi Aramco as well as for local companies like EEIC brought on board to provide the electrical scope for the FGP.

ISF willing to bring five-a-side football world cup to Kingdom

Leisure Leagues (LL), the organizer of the first five-a-side football in Lisbon this year, says it will hold talks with Saudi sports authorities to bring the ISF (International Soccer Federation) world cup to the Kingdom next year.

Speaking to Arab News, Shahzaib Mehmood Trunkwala, vice president of ISF and president of the group that owns Leisure Leagues Pakistan (LLP), said: “The mega event will boost small-sided football in the Kingdom and South Asia through exchanging Saudi and foreign players onto different teams.”

Trunkwala said the forthcoming ISF world cup in Lisbon has won global attention as a large number of football fans are traveling to Portugal.

He said the Trunkwala family has been mentoring youth and promoting a healthier Pakistan for decades. The family plans to bring the Argentine football star Lionel Messi over next year.

“There have been talks between Leisure Leagues and Messi, and it is likely that Pakistani fans will see the world’s greatest star play here next year,” he said, adding that Messi has expressed his desire to bring two teams to play matches in Pakistan.

Last year, the LLP brought several international football players, including Brazilian star Ronaldinho and the Welsh ex-Manchester United ace Ryan Giggs to Pakistan.

The ISF organizes international small-sided football competitions for both national and club teams in the formats of five, six, seven and eight-a-side football.

Founded in 2017 by national operators of five and six-a-side football leagues across Europe and Asia, ISF brings together the expertise of the industry’s leaders to launch the most exciting international small-sided football tournaments in locations across the world.

Any national level organization which runs five, six, seven or eight-a-side football leagues is eligible to register to join the ISF and gain the license to run their national team. Once registered and approved, the licensee becomes the exclusive operator of their country’s national team and the only organization eligible to represent their country in ISF world or continental championships.

The first Socca6 World Cup will take place in 2018 and players wishing to play for their national team can apply online via the national team page for their country. Continental championships will take place from 2019.
