Egypt launches thermal power international tender
Tender for thermal power generation plant announced
The Ministry of Electricity in Egypt has launched the first international tender for a thermal power generation plant in the country under the build-operate-own (BOO) system, local media has reported.
The power plant will have two 750MW units, with the possibility of a third unit being established at a later date, Al-Ahram has reported.
The Egyptian Electricity Distribution Company will buy the production of the new plant for 20 years and will distribute the electricity to the national grid.
This tender has been launched as a response to the success of a previous international tender to establish a 250MW wind plant which attracted interest from 31 international companies.
