The Daily News Egypt - - Front Page - By Ne­hal Samir

An Egyp­tian pri­vate com­pany, Giza Misr, in co­op­er­a­tion with China’s Sino-Hydro Com­pany, agreed to build a power line, Safaga, with a length of 105 kilo­me­ters and 220kV.

Chair­per­son of Giza Misr Rabab Fayed said that the com­pany de­cided to in­vest EGP 450m in the con­struc­tion of 220kV in West Sharouk trans­for­ma­tions and in the con­nect­ing line of elec­tric­ity from the sta­tion to the Badr trans­former sta­tion with a length of 22 kilo­me­ters and 220kV.

She said that there is great in­ter­est from pri­vate com­pa­nies, both Egyp­tian and for­eign, that work in the field of dis­tribut­ing, set­ting up net­works, and high and medium pres­sure lines to in­vest in the Egyp­tian mar­ket.

Rabab added that the agri­cul­tural sec­tor is re­ceiv­ing great at­ten­tion from the work­ers in the elec­tric­ity com­pa­nies to pro­vide all its needs to fa­cil­i­tate the start of its projects in ac­cor­dance with the plan an­nounced by Pres­i­dent Ab­del Fat­tah Al-Sisi to re­claim 1.5 mil­lion acres.

In an­other con­text, Giza Misr will sign two con­tracts to im­ple­ment 30km from the con­nect­ing lines with 22km to con­nect two pri­vate com­pa­nies’ farms owned by agri­cul­tural investors in east­ern Al Owainat with the na­tional net­work.

The value of the two con­tracts is worth about EGP 80m, point­ing out that the im­ple­men­ta­tion sched­ule will be in two phases ac­cord­ing to the size of ex­pan­sions within the two projects.

She ex­plained that the agri­cul­tural sec­tor is re­ceiv­ing great at­ten­tion from the work­ers in the elec­tric­ity com­pa­nies to pro­vide all its needs to fa­cil­i­tate the start of its projects in ac­cor­dance with the plan an­nounced by Pres­i­dent Ab­del Fat­tah Al-Sisi to re­claim 1.5 m acres.

Fayed praised the re­cent achieve­ments in the Egyp­tian elec­tric­ity sec­tor.

Fayed added that the im­ple­men­ta­tion rate of West Sharouk project of 22/220kV for the con­struc­tion of the trans­former sta­tion in full has reached 40%.

She pointed out that things are going well and pre­cede the planned timetable and im­ple­men­ta­tion plans, stress­ing that the project is ex­pected to be de­liv­ered by next Jan­uary.

In an­other con­text, Giza Misr, in part­ner­ship with the Chi­nese com­pany state grid, has ob­tained a con­tract for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of a link­ing line of 2km from the huge 500kV 6 Oc­to­ber- Abu el Matamer con­nect­ing line, ac­cord­ing to Fayed.
