CMEC-contracted power plant in Pakistan closer to completion

The first gas turbine generator of the Pakistan Jhang Power Station Project, undertaken by Sinomach subsidiary China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC), has been connected to the grid. The first phase of the project will be completed in 14 months and will produce 810 megawatts (MW) of electricity, while the completion of the project in 26 months will raise that figure to 1,263 megawatts.

Electricity will be available in abundance for the trade, agriculture and industrial sectors in Pakistan, and the country will also be able to sell electricity to India, Afghanistan and Iran.

CMEC will speed up the construction and commissioning of the remaining parts of the project to help solve local power shortages as soon as possible.

Chinas foreign aid cooperation project with Benin on cotton planting continues in 2022

The opening ceremony of the annual training class of 2022 themed on mechanized operation technology of cotton planting and maintenance of agricultural machinery was recently held in Benin. It is an aid project sponsored by China to help Benin accelerate agricultural mechanization.

The event was co-hosted by a cotton-planting technical team supporting Benin of China CTEXIC Corporation (CTEXIC), an affiliate of Sinomach subsidiary China Hi-Tech Group Corporation, the Benin Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Fisheries, and the Benin Cotton Association.

The project is helping Benin improve the technologies of cotton seed breeding, selection and refinement, as well as those of advance agricultural operations including mechanized sowing and field management.

CTEXIC has agreed to undertake the project since 2013, and this year marks the third training session. A decade of efforts by CTEXIC has changed the fortunes of many Benin farmers. They have acquired skills to make a living and have become prosperous. The project champions the spirit of China-Africa friendship and cooperation and has been showered with praise for bringing benefits to local people.

The expert team of the third training session consists of seven people from different agricultural majors such as management, cultivation and machinery. In addition to promoting local cotton planting, they will introduce more diverse types of Chinese agricultural machinery products and cultivate qualified operators and maintainers. The increased cotton productivity means a brighter future for cotton farmers can be expected in the near future.
