The Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) will finish studying the electric feeding system of the monorail project linking the New Administrative Capital (NAC) to 6th of October city by September.

A source close to the project told Daily News Egypt that the operation of the monorail will need 140 MW. 

He added that four high-voltage stations (22/66 kv) will be established, and high-voltage cables will be laid with a total length of 89 km. Medium-voltage cables with a length of 100 km will also be used.

The source pointed out that a high-level delegation from EETC conducted several field visits to the site of the monorail lines to inspect the electricity system of the project. A detailed report is scheduled to be sent to the Minister of Electricity and the Minister of Transportation within weeks.
