The 500 kV Double Circuit Quadruple, 45x2 km Burj Al Arab/Wadi El Natrun overhead line project has brought together Elsewedy Electric T&D and the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC).
The agreement was signed by Eng. Medhat Maher, CEO of Elsewedy Electric T&D, and Eng. Sabah Mashaly, Managing Director and Chairman of the Board of Directors of EETC. This initiative aims to enhance network flexibility, optimize electrical capacity, and bolster the national grid connectivity. Elsewedy Electric T&D secured the project through a competitive open tender accepted by both EETC and project lenders.
The project is estimated to take ten months and will cost EGP 1.5 Billion. It is anticipated to significantly improve the power dynamics in the region.
During the signing ceremony, EETC emphasized Elsewedy Electric T&D's substantial potential and extensive experience in executing high-voltage projects, while also acknowledging the support it receives from the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy.
Guided by Eng. Medhat Maher's leadership, Elsewedy Electric T&D has advanced its executive and technical proficiency in carrying out high-voltage projects, including Overhead Transmission Lines (OHTL), transformer stations, and cables.
The company's impressive track record has set a precedent for other domestic businesses to compete with foreign counterparts in similar projects, contributing to national economic growth, reducing reliance on foreign currencies, and lowering implementation expenses while expanding the manufacturing sector for various electrical activities.
