Supplier's Credit/Export Seller's Credit
In March 2004, Harbin Electric International Company Limited (HEC; formerly known as Harbin Power Equipment Co. Ltd. or HPEC) signed an $82 million USD supplier's credit agreement with the Sudan National Electricity Corporation (NEC) for Phase II of the 212MW El-Jaili (Garri/Qarre) Gas Power Plant Construction Project (see BBC article; Chinese Loans to Africa Database). The loan terms are unknown. China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation (Sinosure) provided insurance for this loan (see Harbin 2016 report). According to a World Bank document (source #11327, p. 57), oil served as collateral for this loan.This project involved the installation of 4 gas turbines, 4 heat boilers, and 2 steam turbines with a total power generation of 200,000 kilowatts at the El-Jaili (Garri/Qarre) Gas Power Plant located about 80 km north of Khartoum. Harbin Electric Company Limited was the contractor responsible for implementation. The first gas turbine was connected to the national electricity grid on 29 January 2007. Then, on 5 January 2009, Sudan's President Omar Hassan Al Bashir, the Chinese Foreign Minister, and other Sudanese government officials opened the Garri (Qarre) I and II power stations. Together, the power stations added 300 megawatts to the national grid.China also financed Phase I (see Project #158) and Phase IV (#55858) of this project.
