Siemens to sign management contracts for the three combined cycle plants next week
Siemens to sign management contracts for the three combined cycle plants next week: It appears that the Electricity Ministry had settled on having Siemens run the day-to-day operations and maintenance of the three combined-cycle power plants in the new capital, Burullus, and Beni Suef. The global giant built the plants with local partners including our friends Orascom Construction and Elsewedy Electric. Siemens and the state are expected to sign the EGP 6 bn, eight-year contracts next week, sources from the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company said. The EEHC had issued an open tender for the management and maintenance of the plants back in November.
