UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
The United Nations Development Programme, in support of the Ministry of Energy and Water, has initiated the implementation of the CEDRO 5 project, which is co-funded by the European Union. The CEDRO 5 project is implemented in partnership with the Association of Lebanese Industrialists (ALI), The Lebanon Green Building Council (LGBC), and the International Renewable Energy Credits (I-REC) Institution.
The European Commission (EC) is encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship in Lebanon to support a clean energy transition. The overall aim of the EC is to address job creation and growth in support of Lebanon's economy, in line with the first priority sector of the Single Support Framework for EU Support to Lebanon (2017-2020), while supporting Climate Change Mitigation in Lebanon. The specific objective is to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and job creation in support of Lebanon's clean energy transition and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for the energy sector. The EC proposes the gradual shift towards a clean energy transition (gradual phasing out from fossil fuels by switching to renewable energy sources) and circular economy principles, paving the way for (1) tapping into the potential for green jobs and growth (in particular in the energy sector), (2) alleviating financial and economic burden of the current energy system on the various sectors and sub-sectors of Lebanon, (3) facilitating access to financing, and (4) improving the linkages amongst green entrepreneurship, small-and-medium sized enterprises (SMEs), industries and research/technology centers.
The UNDP CEDRO 5 project aims to achieve the objectives outlined above through enhancing innovation, entrepreneurship and research, assisting in technology transfer and the creation of new value chains in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sector, supporting and imitating enabling policy, training and capacity building, and targeting effective awareness initiatives on renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE).
Duties and Responsibilities
The objective of the Consultancy is to provide the necessary technical support for the effective design, technical specifications drafting, monitoring of the implementation of energy efficiency activity (steam system improvement, steam condensate return and control), and technology transfer for Gemayel Freres.
In specific, the technology intervention aimed for will be steam system improvement, steam condensate return and control in Gemayel Freres (GF), Mount Lebanon, an industry specialized in the production of corrugated cardboards. GF sells and packages corrugated cardboards for both industrial and agricultural products. GF has one office building and three hangars used for production and storage and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
GF has a boiler of 17 Bars, 7 Tonnes/hr, which supplies steam at 180°C to the corrugator line. Another back up boiler of 4 Tonnes/hr exists for emergency cases. An Energy Audit was done in 2015 for the industry and identified the energy efficiency solutions that can save energy. The main energy efficiency solution is the steam network improvement along with steam condensate return with a control to the steam system and steam traps.
The existing steam network generates steam in the process of corrugated board manufacturing mainly to condition the paper and to dry out the starch-based glue in order to ensure a good and quick bonding between the paper layer and to remove excess moisture from the board. The steam is generated by a fire tube boiler at 13-14 Bar. There are two types of heat exchangers in the process: rotating cylinders and flat plates. Both heat exchangers are currently equipped with spiral type steam traps. The flat plates of the double backer section are equipped with steam pressure reducers while the rotating cylinders of the single facers and the double glue unit are supplied with live steam at line pressure. The condensate is collected from the heat exchangers through two lines and conveyed to an atmospheric feed water tank by steam pressure. No condensate pumps are used. The mixture of condensate and make up water is then pumped to the boiler. The industry is considering upgrading the condensate system to become pressurized to improve the thermal efficiency. The project might introduce other improvements to the steam system to control, enhance, and monitor its performance.
The Consultant, in close coordination with the UNDP Project Management Unit (PMU) and the Association of Lebanese Industrialists (ALI) will be required to develop the full technical specifications (bidding documents) for the steam system improvement and steam condensate return with control to be implemented at the selected beneficiary facility, and assist in capacity building of the specified technology, including the publication of a guideline report, as per the below two tasks:
