Thermal Power Plant

Thermal power plants convert heat energy into electrical energy. The main configurations are: 

  • Simple cycle power plant
  • Combined cycle power plant
  • Diesel engine power plant

We can undertake all engineering, procurement and construction of the power plant including mechanical Balance of Plant (BOP) and electrical BOP, from heat exchanger, compressors, pumps, valves, pipes to HVAC, fire protection, steam sampling, heat tracing and communication systems.  


A low-capital cost solution for power generation. Our work involves the design, supply, construction and commissioning. 


This is the most efficient type of power plant, using both a gas and a steam turbine to deliver 60% greater efficiency as well as lower operating costs and fuel consumption. Elsewedy Electric have extensive experience in combined cycle power plants. We helped to build the biggest combined cycle plant in Egypt as well as plants elsewhere in Africa and the Gulf. We can manage the EPC of civil works and site preparation, EPC of all balance of plant equipment and systems, erection works and testing and commissioning. 


In this configuration a diesel engine drives an alternator to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. Despite the high cost of diesel fuel, diesel power stations are suitable in areas of low demand or where coal and water are hard to access. They are also used as a standby power source for hospitals, radio stations, cinemas and telephone exchanges.
