Egypt, Saudi to sign electricity interconnection project contracts in June

Meanwhile, Egypt and Saudi Arabia are expected to sign contracts for their USD 1.6 bn electricity grid interconnection project in June, Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company head Gamal Abdel Rehim tells Youm7. Construction on the substations in Badr, Nabq, and Tibuk will begin mid-2018, according to Abdel Rehim. Electricity Ministry sources had said in January that the selection of a winning bid to complete the project has been postponed until June, since the committee reviewing the offers needs more time to sift through the technical specs of bids. Alstom, ABB, and Siemens all submitted bids for the three-phase project.
