Elysée Yao and Karim Karidioula, 2 engineers from IED Côte d'Ivoire office in Abidjan, started a week ago a practical training with the teams of IED Invest Cambodia, who operate the gasification plants of Angkor Chum and Sra Emm.
Over the next three months, they will be trained to the operation and maintenance of the facilities, to work on the development of operating procedures and training materials in French, but will also participate in the realization of new tests of adaptation of gasifiers to the cashew nuts shell and the optimization of gas treatment.
This in-house skills building aims to set up a qualified technical team based in West Africa. They will thus be able to effectively support the AGROGAZELEC project supported by the Fonds français pour l'environnement mondial (FFEM) fund, consisting in technology transfer from Cambodia to West Africa in order to promote the development of a local industrial sector as well as a first pilot power plant for the agro-industrial TOLARO, with the OCEF - Off Grid Clean Energy Facility / Millennium Challenge Account - Benin II (MCA-Benin II) facility support.
We wish a good Cambodian adventure to our 2 Ivorian engineers!
