The Energy Institute was asked by the City office of Protocol and the US Department of Commerce to facilitate the visit. Our activities included arranging a plant visit to the Entergy-Thermal central refrigeration plant, a relatively new unit which provides cooling to the downtown hospital complex including portions of Tulane, all of LSU, the Veterans Memorial Hospital, Charity Hospital and the Delgado Nursing School. Separately, we participated in a floor tour of the convention center and a dinner. As part of the minister's infrastructure re-Development efforts, he has asked Tulane to provide a proposal for providing a customized MBA program for existing engineers being groomed to manage new power plants and distribution grids in Iraq.
