Ansaldo Energia bags $265mn Egypt contracts
Italian firm seals deals to supply turbines for three major power plants.
Italian engineering firm Ansaldo Energia has been awarded three major power plant contracts in Egypt worth over EUR 240mn ($265mn).
The first two, Al Shabab and West Damietta, cover the conversion to combined cycles of two power plants owned by Egyptian Electricity Holding Co.
They entail the supply and commissioning of three steam turbines rated 265 MW each, including the relative hydrogen-cooled generators, air condensers, transformers and auxiliary systems.
The third contract is with Elsewedy Power System Projects International for the supply of two AE94.2 gas turbines of about 170 MW each (in ISO conditions) and the relative generators, plus engineering, erection and startup services for the open cycle power plant at Al Mahmoudia (Al Buhayrah State).
In a statement Ansaldo said the success in winning these contracts reflects the level of satisfaction of its Egyptian customers following the recent supply of turbogenerators.
With these orders, Ansaldo Energy has installed over 4,000 MW of power generating capacity in the country.
