When more power is added to the grid and Egypt can celebrate a prosperous future. That's Ingenuity for life.
By 2018, Siemens and Egypt will have advanced the history of this vibrant country.
The partnership will start to boost power generation capacity by 50 percent to reach a total of 16.4 gigawatts.
Together with Egypt, Siemens is building a foundation for progress to unlock Egypt's vast potential.
Since the Pharaohs commissioned the great Pyramids, the country has been an industrialized nation. But, energy shortages have been a challenge to Egyptian industry. Siemens powerful energy mix system will underpin the country’s growth and economic development. This will benefit all the citizens. There will be more jobs, because business will be able to flourish, people and their families will feel more fulfilled, more comfortable. Communities confident in reliable power will be transformed, empowering each Egyptian to dream, create and now put ideas into action with the potential to change Egypt, the Middle East and the world.
Siemens state of the art power generation technology under the Megaproject includes three 4.8 gigawatt turnkey Combined Cycle Power Plants, and 12 wind parks with approximately 600 wind turbines.
The Egyptian people can count on Siemens. This was true more than 150 years ago, when Siemens first started working in Egypt and it remains our commitment today.
Building high efficient Combined Cycle Power Plants, sustainable wind farms, state-of-the-art Gas Insulated Switchgear substations to expand the infrastructure for a country fulfilling true potential, that is ingenuity for life. Stay up to date with the projects` progress:
Significance for Egypt
Projects of any size require a flexible portfolio. Turnkey power plants, wind and steam turbines, generators, instrumentation and control systems, and smart grid strategies all offer powerful, adaptable, reliable, and clean energy delivered according to real-time demand. Moreover, upgrading and retrofitting existing infrastructure also serves to return older power plants to peak efficiency.
Executing 14.4 GW of fossil power generation based on combined cycle configuration on fast track basis over two phases: phase 1 for up to 4.4 GW in an open cycle configuration by the end of 2016; and phase 2 for up to 14.4 GW in a combined cycle configuration by mid-2018.
Deploying large wind projects for up to 2000 MW in the Gulf of Suez and West Nile, all energized by Siemens Direct Drive Wind Turbine Generators.
Extending transmission network by building a state-of-the-art 6 GIS substation of 500 KV in record time.
A Long Term Performance contract supported by O&M supervision and provided by Siemens for 16.4 GW.
A detailed grid stability study now investigating the efficiency and stability of the current electricity grid to pin-point critical bottlenecks and provide scenario definition, network performance, and analysis for 2015 and the decade ahead.
Improving the efficiency of fossil power generation systems and saving tremendous amounts of natural gas by deploying highly efficient gas-fired combined cycle power plants (CCPP) using Siemens H-class technology.
Siemens' Financial Services Division (SFS) is structuring the financing package for Siemens' role in the contracts, including a tailored guarantee concept.
