Egypt and Sudan link energy grids

Egypt and Sudan have connected energy grids with an initial capacity of 60 MW, Reuters reports, citing a statement from Sudan’s Energy Ministry. The connection will be ramped up to 100 MW in a second phase before later reaching its maximum 300 MW capacity. The EGP 509 mn 1k km long electricity interconnection project has been in the works since the governments first agreed upon the network in 2018 but has seen continuous delays as political disputes over the Grand Ethipian Renaissance Dam (GERD) overshadowed its construction.
