Siemens to operate mega Egypt plants

October 2018

Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) has selected Siemens to operate and maintain the world’s largest combined-cycle power plants in the country.

 Under the milestone agreement, Siemens will provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services (O&M) for the Beni Suef, New Capital and Burullus power plants, for the next eight years.

 The agreement, which is the largest ever for the Siemens Power Generation Services in terms of power generated, includes the implementation of the company’s Omnivise digital service solutions.

 Each of the three 4.8GW power plants is considered to be the largest gas-fired combined-cycle plant ever built and operated. Together the plants represent approximately 40 per cent of Egypt’s power capacity, at the time of signing contracts, generating 14.4GW – enough to supply 40 million Egyptians with electricity.
