El Sewedy and EDF are part of a consortium bidding for the management and maintenance contract for the three Siemens combined-cycle power plant at the new capital, Burullus and Beni Suef, which should take place next month. Siemens, Germany’s STEAG GmbH, an Orascom-ADERA Energy consortium are among the other suitors.
