Power tenders near in Egypt

22 May 2008
The Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) will issue tenders for three new power generation projects over the next 19 months.

The first tenders, for the 12MW Assyut barrage power plant, will be issued in late 2008 or early 2009.

This will be followed by tenders for a combined cycle plant at Sharm el-Sheikh, which will have capacity of either 350MW or 750MW, in February 2009.

Finally, in December 2009 EEHC will issue tenders for a 1,300MW thermal plant at Ain el-Sokhna.

The Sharm el-Sheikh plant is part of EEHC’s generation expansion plan for 2002-2008. The other two projects fall under the utility’s latest masterplan, which will add 46,500MW of generation capacity between 2013-2027 (MEED 11:4:08).
