Siemens completes construction of two substations in Egypt

Siemens has completed the construction of two substations in Egypt which were built to transmit electricity from the Burullus power plant to the national grid.

As part of the agreement, Siemens was responsible for the design, engineering, construction, supply, installation and commissioning of the 500/200 kV Samanoud and Aboul Matameer substations, including power transformers, gas-insulated switchgear, control systems and protection and telecommunication equipment, reports ME Construction News.

The substations should improve the resilience of Egypt’s power grid as well as enable power delivery to Egyptian homes and different industries located in the Delta, Alexandria and Kafr El Sheikh area.

As part of Egypt’s Vision 2030, the substations will increase the capacity of the national grid, which is a key requirement for the growth of the country and will contribute towards strengthening its power sector.
