The Ain Sokhna thermal power project is designed to respond to the power demand in Egypt which is growing at a very fast rate (6.38% p.a). The project involves the construction of a 1300 MW (2x650 MW) supercritical steam turbine power plant located adjacent to the sea port of Ain Sokhna on the Gulf of Suez. This should provide a 1300 MW thermal power station that will feed power to the Unified Power System (UPS). The power generated should be used for industrial and commercial activities countrywide thus contributing to job creation, increase in productivity, electricity connection rates and improvement in quality of life. The project consists of the following major components: A) civil works; B) supply and installation of equipment; C) environmental monitoring, and D) project management/wrap up insurance.
The sector goal of the project is to promote economic growth and improve the standard of living of the population through production of energy including electricity. The project objective is to enhance the socio economic development of Egypt by providing infrastructure for increasing the generation capacity in the country.
The project beneficiaries are the people living around the project site, contractors and suppliers, Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) and East Delta Electricity Production Company (EDEPC); and the country’s population (industry and domestic) who are connected to the national grid.
