Alstom to equip 650 MW power plant in Egypt

Paris, July 30, 2012 — Alstom has secured an order worth about $110 million from the East Delta Electricity Production Co. for the supply of equipment for a 650 MW steam cycle thermal power plant at a site located in the vicinity of Suez, east of Cairo.

The plant will directly provide electricity to more than half million people residing in the Suez district and will also be connected to the national grid. It will be commissioned in 2015.

The scope of the contract includes engineering, manufacturing, erection and commissioning of the steam turbine and generator including auxiliaries like the condenser and the delivery of spare parts.

EDEPC provides electricity for the eastern part of the country from areas like the Mediterranean city of Damietta until Egypt's southern border with Sudan. Alstom has previously supplied equipment to EDEPC for their Damietta combined cycle and the Attaka steam power plant projects.

Alstom's total installed base in Egypt is about 4.5 GW having supplied its power generation equipment to projects such as the Abu Quir, El Tebbin and Sidi Krir steam power plants and Cairo North, Nubaria III, Kureimat and Talkha gas-fired plants.
