Saudi-Egypt interconnection project tenders postponed to mid-April

“No political reasons for postponement”: The Egyptian Electricity Holding Company said it is postponing ruling on bids to the financial and technical tender for the Egypt-Saudi Arabia electricity interconnection project to mid-April, according to Daily News Egypt. Sources said “the delay is not due to strained political relations between Egypt and Saudi Arabia, but the desire of both parties to complete the project in the best way possible.” The tender for the Medina-Tabuk substations will be posted by Saudi Arabia on 16 April and the tender for the Badr-Nabq lines in Egypt will be announced on 19 April. The tenders involve connecting 450 km of lines between the Badr City power station to the Nabq City switch station, from which 850 km in lines will be extended to east of the Medina power station, passing through the Tabuk station. Alstom, ABB, and Siemens have all applied for the tender, Daily News Egypt notes. The results of the tender were pushed back before in January.
