Siemens Energy to power Alexandria’s Bashaer El Khair City

  • Bashaer El Khair is part of a national project to set up urban modern cities to drive the country’s economic and social development
  • Project set to supply power from national grid to feed new residential complex

In a new move aimed at improving the resilience of Egypt’s

power transmission network, Siemens Energy has been

selected by the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company

(EETC) to connect Bashaer El Khair City project in

Alexandria city with the country’s national grid. The new

grid project will help supply electrical power to more than

25,000 residential units, in over 250 apartment buildings

and service centers.

Egypt has been working to strengthen and increase the

reliability of the national grid to power the new cities and

drive the country’s economic and social development. The

Bashaer El Khair, residential complex, is part of a national

project to create new communities and provide quality

homes for people living in informal communities or

settlements in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria.

 “Electrification of new cities is a big priority for Egypt and

across the region, a topic that will continue to be

emphasized to create more prosperous and greener cities,”

said Mahmoud Hanafy, Senior Vice President, Siemens

Energy Transmission Solutions in the Middle East.

“This project comes as part of our commitment to support

the government in strengthening the transmission capacity

of the Egyptian electricity network. The project will help

reinforce the grid and enhance power supplies to meet the

increasing demand for electricity from residential and

commercial consumers as a result of growing urbanization

in Egypt.”

As part of the project, Siemens Energy will be responsible

for the design, engineering, construction, installation and

commissioning of the 66/11-kilovolt station that will be

delivered on a turnkey basis. This includes gas-insulated

switchgear (GIS), power transformer’s installation and

commissioning, control systems as well as protection and

telecommunication equipment. The project will be fast

tracked and is expected to be operational in July 2021.

“An efficient and robust electricity network is an essential

part of Egypt’s vision to drive long-term economic growth.

We’re pleased to build on our long-lasting relationship with

the EETC and be part of this project that will upgrade the

lives of many in Alexandria,” said Emad Ghaly, Managing

Director of Siemens Energy in Egypt.

To date, approximately 50 per cent of the power

transmission network in Egypt is built using Siemens

Energy’s technology.
