Siemens to connect 800 MW to national grid from Burullus by June’s end

Siemens will connect 800 MW of electricity produced at the Burullus power plant to the national grid by the end of June, sources tell Al Borsa. Connecting the additional production will bring the total output from Siemens’ operations at the Beni Suef, Burullus, and the New Administrative Capital plants connected to the national grid to the full 4.8 GW of electricity produced from the three plants. The additional output from Burullus had yet to be linked to the national grid as there is no excess demand, sources add. In total, the three power plants are expected to reach a total capacity of 14.4 GW in a combined cycle configuration by mid-2018, according to Siemens’ Egypt mega project page.
