Transgrid Solutions studies increasing Electricity Interconnection project capacity to 3,600 MW

Canadian consultants Transgrid Solutions are studying increasing the capacity of the Egypt-Saudi Electricity Interconnection project to 3,600 MW from 3,000 MW, an official from the Electricity Ministry told Al Borsa. Increasing the capacity of the project requires amendments to specifications in the electrical towers, cables, and transformer stations, he added. A delegation from Saudi Arabia will arrive in Egypt next week to review the technical and legal aspects of the project. The tenders are set to be issued next month over three stages, said the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company Chairman Gamal Abdel Rehim. The total cost of the project is estimated at USD 1.6 bn, of which Egypt contributes USD 600 mn, he added. (Read in Arabic)
