Minister of Health Dr Jamal Al-Harbi announced activation of the decision to increase fees for services offered to expatriate residents and visitors, and indications are rife that the next few hours may be witness to massive reshuffling of Ministry of Health officials at various levels.

While launching the “National Fence” campaign Monday, Dr Al-Harbi declared the Blood Bank at Sabah Health Region will be inaugurated soon. He added the campaign has restored the value of unity, kindness and love of the country while marking the anniversary of Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.

He explained the rate of increase in fees for services offered to expatriate residents will be insignificant, while the reshuffling will affect directors of health regions and hospitals, their deputies and head of health centers.

He stressed the ministry is considering the establishment of an independent health authority. He also said the Ministry of Health in Kuwait superintends and audits and provides healthcare services, and there should be an independent body to monitor healthcare services provided by the ministry — as observed globally.

Security sources said expats cannot bring their parents or siblings on family residence visas even if they are ready to pay the increased health insurance fees for them, until a new fee list that was sent to the National Assembly is approved. They added the new fees will increase exponentially.

The sources said the interior ministry has begun imposing increased health insurance on parents and siblings who are already in the country when they renew their residence permits, adding that 1,500 such persons renewed their residencies this month out of 13,000 that are required to do so.

The sources said the decision includes relatives of Kuwaitis and there are no exemptions, except for those with special needs. They said the decision includes non-Kuwaiti parents and siblings under the sponsorship of citizens and expats, and are required to pay the new health insurance fees to renew their residency permits. The sources said husbands and children of Kuwaiti women are not included in this new regime. – Al-Rai

SQU to begin construction of solar parking lots in August


Sultan Qaboos University has announced that it will begin construction of solar parking lots on their campus from August, 2017.

According to a statement from SQU, the car park will be covered with photovoltaic cells, and construction will be done in two phases. 

For phase 1, the project site is the College of Engineering parking lot. This 82 kW project is expected to reduce carbon emission by 82.6 ton/year. 324 units of PV modules will be installed with an expected annual energy production of 140MWh.

Prof. Abdullah Al Badi from the College of Engineering said that the total cost for phase one is OMR108,000 which will be funded by Jacobs International Engineering Consultancy, LLC. The main contractor is Nafath Renewable Energy. An agreement in this regard was signed by SQU and Jacobs International, who agreed to help not only with the required funding, but also in providing support to SME to engineer and construct the project.

Oman enjoys high solar radiation ranging from 5,500-6,000 Wh/m2 per day in July to 2,500-3,000 Wh/m2 per day in January. This high level of solar energy density in Oman is among the highest in the world, with SQU saying that there is significant scope for developing solar energy resources throughout Oman and solar energy has the potential to provide sufficient electricity to meet all of Oman's domestic electricity requirements.

A team from the college of engineering had proposed covering 100 car park spaces using photovoltaic (PV) modules instead of conventional shading material. The team includes Dr. Mohammed Al-Badi and Dr. Rashid Al-Abri, and are led by Prof. Abdullah Al Badi.
