Siemens to supply four turbines to Egypt’s Attaka Power Plant, adding 650MW to grid

The contract forms part of the initial phase of the Egyptian Third Fast-Track Electricity Plan. The plan aims to meet the country’s rapidly increasing demand for power by adding new generating capacity to existing power facilities throughout Egypt.
“We are proud to support the country in its mission to develop a reliable and sustainable power supply,” said Karim Amin, Senior Vice President, Power Generation, Siemens Middle East. “Siemens has been trusted to deliver infrastructure to Egypt for more than 113 years, and I’m pleased to say that this latest project is in progress, on time and being executed according to the fast-track schedule. We look forward to continuing our active role in helping to shape the country’s future.”
Siemens has maintained a continuous presence in Egypt since 1901 and has been a key technology provider to some of the country’s biggest infrastructure projects in the energy, industry, healthcare and mobility sectors.
The company also recently signed a contract with the East Delta Electricity Production Company (EDEPC) for the supply, installation and commissioning of major electrical components at the Suez Thermal Power Plant in Egypt. The project is part of a national plan to enhance Egypt’s power supply and will be commissioned in June 2016.
Notes for journalists:
The Siemens E-Class turbine is well-proven, highly flexible and service-friendly. It is also especially suited to peak-load operation, making it an appropriate technology for Egypt, which experiences high demand for electricity during the summer months.
