Siemens and its consortium partners, Orascom Construction and Elsewedy Electric, announced the completion of the Egypt Megaproject on 24 July.

Operations began at the Beni Suef, Burullus, and New Capita power plants, which were completed in record time.

The stations create a combined capacity of 14.4GW, generating enough energy to power 40mn people through the grid.

The plants mark a world record of 14.4GW of capacity having been executed and delivered in 27.5 months.

“The record-breaking completion of our Megaproject in Egypt will not only transform the power landscape in Egypt, but will also serve as a blueprint for building up power infrastructure in the Middle East and all over the world,” remarked Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG.
