Egypt megaproject receives first two substations

Siemens has successfully energized the first two substations that will transmit electricity generated by the new power plants in Beni Suef and Burullus to Egypt’s power grid.

When finished, the plants will feature a total of six 500/220 kV substations and will enable a reliable and resilient energy delivery for the people of Egypt, the manufacturer said in a statement.

The substations will include power transformers, gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), and control and protection equipment.

The Etay El-Baroud and Maghagha substations are part of the contract signed between a consortium, comprising Siemens and El Sewedy Electric T&D, with the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) for the design, engineering, supply and installation of six substations, located in El Minia, El Beheira, Qalubia, Assiut and Kafr El Zayat governorates.
