Siemens has completed two substation in Egypt with an aim to improve the national electricity grid’s resilience, the company announced in a press release.

The new turnkey 500/220-kilovolt (kV) substations are located in Samanoud and Aboul Matameer to transmit electricity from the Burullus generating power plant to the national grid.

“To enable more resilient, efficient and reliable power systems, Egypt needs to enhance the country’s transmission lines to accommodate the increase in power generation capacity. This is why the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) has been redefining the conventional approaches to upgrade the grid infrastructure across the country,” said Gaber El Desouki, Chairman of the EEHC.

The new stations will allow the delivery of electricity to homes and different industries located in Alexandria, the Delta and Kafr El Sheikh. They will contribute to boosting the national grid’s capacity, facilitating increased economic activity.

“An efficient and robust electricity network is an essential part of Egypt’s vision to drive long-term economic growth. We are pleased to build on a trusting relationship with EEHC to boost grid infrastructure,” said Emad Ghaly, CEO of Siemens Egypt.
