Egypt signs $260M power transformer deal with Siemens
Egypt, Cairo: Egyptian Ministry of Electricity has signed a $260.7 million (€238 million) contract with a consortium comprising Siemens and El Sewedy Electric T&D for the construction of six power transformer stations.
Under the contract, Siemens will design, engineer, supply, install and commission the new substations, which will include 500 kV power transformers, gas-insulated switchgear, and control and protection equipment.
Located at El Minia, El Beheira, Qalubia, Assiut and Kafr El Zayat governorates, the 500/220 kV substations will transmit power generated by the new Siemens-built power plants in Beni Suef and Burullus into Egypt’s power grid.
All civil and electro mechanical work for the projects will be completed by El-Sewedy Electric T&D and the construction of the substations will match the implementation timeframe of the Beni Suef and Burullus power plants.
