The present project concerns the El Arish Power Project in the Arab Republic of Egypt. It's a part of the planned generation development program to phase out isolated diesel plants and extend the UPS networks. In 1982, this project was initiated and studies carried in subsequent years to come up with economically feasible power plant that operate with steam turbine generators to supply the Northern Sinai region. The main components of the project comprises the installation of 2X30 MW steam turbine generators complete with control systems and two steam generators (boilers) and auxiliaries; the construction of civil works and transmission networks; and provision of consultancy services for engineering services and supervision.
The goal of the sector is to make energy available at an economic cost and with high reliability of supply. The main objective of the project is to provide electric energy to Northern Sinai Region including the El Arish town to meet the growing demand of its domestic consumers and socio-economic sectors in particular agriculture, industry and tourism.
