SEC in search of certified courses
Company keen to commence training of logistics staff.
The Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) is currently on the look out for providers of certified courses in supply chain management, as it is planning to improve the skills of its logistics and inventory planning staff.
“The decision to improve the skills of our employees was taken by the upper management two months ago, and we are now searching for suitable companies who can provide the necessary training,” said Abdul Hadi, inventory planner at the SEC.
Hadi attended the second day of the Saudi Arabian Oil and Gas Exhibition (SAOGE) held in Damman on October 10-12 in the hope of finding providers of certified courses. Once a suitable candidate is found, the SEC is keen to commence with the training.
“We hope to be able to start putting our staff through courses by the start of next year, or even at the end of this year. We have the budget in place,” said Hadi.
Highly trained staff will help the SEC pursue its ambitious programme of increasing the power supply to the country.
The company is currently implementing projects worth around US$22 billion, in addition to projects with a capacity of 15,000MW due this year.
The company has spent $38 billion on electricity projects since it was founded in April 2000 until the end of 2008.
