Siemens delivers E-Class turbines to Egypt
German company supplies four units to Attaka Power Plant near Suez City.
Siemens has completed the fast-track supply and delivery of four E-Class turbines to Egypt’s Attaka Power Plant in collaboration with supply partner ELSEWEDY Power System Projects (PSP).
The first turbine has entered commercial operation after a construction period of only five months, making it one of the fastest implementation times for this type of project in the company’s history.
Operated by East Delta Electricity Production Company (EDEPC), Attaka Power Plant has an installed generating capacity of 640 megawatts (MW), and is a significant addition to the capability and stability of Egypt’s national electricity grid.
Located near Suez City, Attaka Power Plant is part of Egypt’s Third Fast-Track Electricity Plan which aims to meet the country’s rapidly rising demand for efficient, reliable power generation capacity.
The plant is powered by Siemens E-Class turbines which are characterized by high fuel flexibility and reliability, service-friendly design and suitability for all load ranges, particularly peak-load operation.
“Egypt’s Fast-Track Electricity Plan demonstrates a commitment to developing a powerful, reliable and stable electricity network in support of the country’s sustainable growth,” said Emad Ghaly, Senior Vice President, Power and Gas, Siemens Egypt.
“Siemens has been a trusted technology partner to Egypt for more than 100 years, and our rapid delivery of this significant fast-track project reinforces our commitment to the country’s ongoing economic development.”
