The Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) signed a rehabilitation project contract for the Esna substation with South Korean Sieyuan and Mega alliance at a cost of EGP 91m.

Gamal Abdel Rahim, chairperson of the EETC, said that the alliance will take over the rehabilitation of the Esna substation to become 66/11KV, 2X40 MVA over 12 months, without the supply of main transformers.

He added that the EETC also signed a contract with El Nasr Transformers and Electrical Products Company (ELMACO) for the supply and supervision of the installation of 51 transformers (66/11 kV, 40 MVA).

Abdel Rahim said that the implementation will last for five months from the date of signing the contract at an investment cost of EGP 355m, funded by electricity regions’ credits (Suez Canal, Nile Delta, Alexandria and West Delta, Upper Egypt, and Central Egypt) for about 45 transformers, while six other transformers will be financed by the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA).
