Italian power engineering company Ansaldo Energia has been awarded three contracts worth US$266mn in Egypt
The first two contracts cover the conversion to combined cycles of two power plants at Al Shabab and West Damietta, owned by the Egyptian Electricity Holding Co. Ansaldo Energia will supply and commission three steam turbines rated 265MW each, including the relative hydrogen-cooled generators, air condensers, transformers and auxiliary systems.
The third contract is to supply two AE94.2 gas turbines rated at 170MW each (in ISO conditions) and the relative generators, engineering, erection and start-up services for the open cycle power plant at Al Mahmoudia (Al Buhayrah State), assigned by the Elsewedy Power System Projects International.
With the three orders, Ansaldo Energy has installed more than 4,000MW of power generating capacity in the country and can be considered among the most important original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in Egypt.
