Vizada Networks...Solution For South Sudan... (SATCOM)

March 12, 2012

The Republic of South Sudan’s administration has selected the Astrium owned satellite and telecommunications specialist........Vizada Networks to provide interim Internet connectivity and voice services for domestic and international official use.


The interim connectivity is for three months and was agreed on February 24th, 2012, with service delivery starting during March 2012. The Vizada Networks delivery will be based on the Viznet Broadband service, providing the South Sudan Ministry of Telecom and postal services officials with capacity of 2mbps uplink and 4mbps downlink. A 7.3m C-band VSAT antenna already in place at the Ministry of Telecom premises will be used for the transmission, while a WiMAX solution will be established by Vizada Networks’ established local partner, Unitel Communications Ltd., to further distribute the service to administration offices in Juba.

The Viznet Broadband service that Vizada Networks is deploying in Juba is a standardized, high-quality service providing high-speed connectivity with dedicated bandwidth and guaranteed CIR. It is partially built upon Vizada Networks’ next generation JanUX Mark II solution and is differentiated by the integration of proprietary, industry leading bandwidth management, ACM and centralized remote monitoring and control that offer added value in terms of costs, quality and availability.

الخرطوم تخفض رسوم عبور نفط الجنوب
الثلاثاء, 13 مارس 2012 23:11 التحديث الأخير ( الأربعاء, 14 مارس 2012 00:03 )

الجاز: نعتقد أن 32 دولارا رسوم عادلة
خفض السودان الرسوم التي يطلبها مقابل عبور صادرات نفط الجنوب عبر خطوطه، ومعالجة الخام في مصافيه، إلى 32.20 دولارا للبرميل من 36 دولارا، في مسعى لحل النزاع الذي دفع جنوب السودان إلى وقف إنتاجه النفطي.

ونقلت رويترز عن وزير النفط السوداني عوض الجاز القول "نتوقع أن تكون هذه الجولة أكثر إيجابية مما قبلها".


وقال الجاز إن الخرطوم تعتقد أن 32 دولارا رسوم عادلة لأنها تملك جميع المنشآت وتقدم كل الخدمات.


لكن حتى مع خفض الرسوم التي يطلبها السودان فإن هناك فجوة كبيرة حيث يعرض الجنوب دفع أقل من دولار واحد للبرميل مقابل ضخ نفطه شمالا للتصدير من ميناء بورتسودان على ساحل البحر الأحمر.


وقال الجاز إن حكومة جنوب السودان في جوبا لا تريد أن تدفع شيئا لأنها تتصرف كما لو كان الجانبان كيانا واحدا، وأضاف "نحن دولتان مختلفتان الآن". وأعرب عن أمله في أن يعرض الوسيط شيئا يقبله الطرفان.


يُذكر أن دولة الجنوب أوقفت إنتاجها النفطي البالغ 350 ألف برميل يوميا في يناير، وطلب السودان آنذاك ستة دولارات وإعادة التفاوض بشأن رسوم استخدام خط الأنابيب والمعالجة، وهو ما رفع التكاليف إلى 36 دولارا للبرميل.

Translation it mainly says that Sudan decreased fees to the south sudan oil through Sudan from 36 dollars to 32.20 dollars congrats South

South Sudan eyes Hydro-power

By Hereward Holland

Quote:
Wed Mar 21, 2012 2:17pm GMT

JUBA (Reuters) - South Sudan is planning to build about half a dozen hydro-power and thermal power plants to help end blackouts and attract investment to manufacturing industries, an electricity official said on Wednesday.

"We are trying to base our planning strategy on our two indigenous resources, that is petroleum and hydro."

The hope is to tap the energy potential of the Nile River. This will start with building of a 40 MW hydro-power station near the capital in the next three years, Loku Moyu said.

In the long term, the government plans to build two 200 MW hydro-power facilities and a 540 MW plant that would each take five to seven years to complete, he said.

South Sudan to complete new airport terminal, eyes port

March 28, 2012

Business Recorder Logo South Sudan plans to mark its emergence onto the world stage as an independent oil producer by completing a new airport terminal in June as a showcase for business visitors to the capital Juba, a government official said on Thursday.

"It is our highest priority," Deputy Transport Minister Mayom Kuoc Malek told Reuters.

Money for the prestige project has now been secured, after funding problems and other snags prevented its completion in time for independence celebrations last July, he said.

Some 22 airlines serve Juba International Airport, mostly from African neighbours such as Kenya and Ethiopia, and South Sudan has long wanted to replace the elderly airport building, with its poor security and long bench instead of a luggage carousel.

The new terminal will show the modern face of South Sudan to the rising number of foreign executives tapping high-risk, high-return business opportunities in the central African state.

Malek, speaking on the sidelines of an investment conference, said the government is confident it will also obtain funds to extend the airport runway and build a new taxiway within two years. "We are rehabilitating the runway.

It hasn't been repaired for a long, long time," he noted.

After decades of north-south civil war in Sudan, a peace agreement in 2005 allowed the south to secede, which it did last year, becoming South Sudan on July 9.

The new government has found it difficult to assert control over its territory and launch infrastructure projects, and President Salva Kiir routinely cites corruption as a barrier to development.

Malek said that South Sudan hoped to secure funding from private investors or international organisations to build three new airports, including one in the Tali area to serve Ramciel, where the government plans to move its capital at some point, and one in Bentiu, in oil-producing Unity state.

"This is long term," he said, declining to specify the time frame or sources of funding.

"As a landlocked country we need good access." The government also plans to move its main port on the White Nile from Juba to Mangala in the centre of the country, he said.

"River transport is the cheapest," he said.

South Sudan used to import many of its needs from Sudan via Nile trade, but the land borders have been closed for most of the time since independence because of tension and fighting on the Sudanese side of the border.

EU offers technical support for South Sudan air transport

Brussels, Belgium – The European Union (EU) is to send a technical mission to South Sudan to work on tightening security at the airport of Juba, the country’s capital.

By sending the mission called 'EUAVSEC-South Sudan, the European Union will help South Sudan,' which gained independence in July last year, to become 'a viable, stable and prosperous State', a statement from the European Union service made available to the press in Brussels said on Thursday.

South Sudan, a landlocked country depending on air trafficking, says the statement which stresses that the tightening of airport safety will help increase the movement of passengers and goods, as well improve trade.

The mandate EUAVSEC-South Sudan, would consist of ensuring training and the monitoring of safety services, supplying advice and assistance in terms of air safety and receiving support to the coordination of activities related to safety.

The European Union has made available the amount of 12.5 million euro for that mission, based in Juba, which will begin activities in September this year for a 19-month duration and will include a 64-member staff.

Japan funds $50 million infrastructure projects

Thursday, 28 June 2012 | Muna Tesfai

The government of Japan has signed a grant of $50 million for three infrastructure projects in South Sudan.

The projects include the construction of a new bridge across River Nile to serve alongside the already existing Juba Bridge. The Ministry of Roads and Bridges and the Japanese International Corporation Agency (JICA) last year agreed on the basic design of a 560m two-lane permanent sctructure bridge accompanied with a 3.65km approach.

The second project is the construction of a water treatment plant that would increase access to safe water. The project would involve the laying of 50km long distribution pipes and installing 120 public water taps and 8 water tank stations. It is expected that this should significantly increase the supply of safe water to over 400,000 people in Juba ten times the current capacity.

The third project is the expansion of Juba river port to handle the increasing volumes of passenger and cargo traffic. The project will see the expansion of the existing capacity of the port to 233meters long, 7 berths permanent jetty with fully modernized cargo handling equipment, an access road and cargo handling yard.

Addressing journalists at the signing ceremony in Juba, the head of the Japan liaison office of the government of Japan in South Sudan, Hideo Fukushima said the projects would boost development.

"These three projects are approximately $50 million infrastructures in the ports and bridges minimal, and we saw that all this facilities need a further improvement and expenditure and we are going to do improvement on the facilities, on the bridge as you all know there is one temporary bridge over forty years old and that is only temporary and that is not enough for boosting trading of this country regional and internationally"

The deputy minister of international cooperation in ministry of foreign affairs, Elias Nyamlell Wakason, signed on behalf of the South Sudan government.

Nyamlell Wakason thanked the Japanese government for its support.

"We thank the Japanese government, the Japanese people for cooperating with us and we wish that this mutual cooperative relationship continuous and look at other projects probably next time not only in Juba here but we have to go to the rural areas and develop their"

S.Sudan Says China to Help Build New Airport in Juba
(WCARN.com/Reuters, Aug. 17)

Quote:
South Sudan said on Friday China would help build a new airport in the capital Juba, completing a project that has highlighted the government's struggle to execute infrastructure projects.

South Sudan has been trying to build up efficient state institutions and start development despite netting in billions of dollars in oil revenues since a 2005 peace agreement with Sudan.

The government had planned to have a new airport terminal ready for independence celebrations in July 2011 but works have been hampered for years by funding problems and poor planning.
