Two Gas Turbines That Will Boost Power Generation By 50% Are on Their Way to Egypt


Amidst all the chaos and frustration that followed Egypt’s transitional phase, finally progress and a better future is on the horizon. Siemens has taken one step forward towards delivering on a promise to the great people of Egypt for a better energy infrastructure that will improve the quality of our life.

Following an initial meeting between Egypt’s president, Abd El-Fattah El-Sisi, and Siemens CEO, Joe Kaeser, the global powerhouse and largest engineering company in Europe promised to deliver electricity to Egypt in order to minimize Egypt’s need for new investments as it will utilize and raise the capacity of existing power generation units.



Two H-class gas turbines for the power plant project in Beni Suef have been loaded onto a barge at the Berlin Westhafen port, from where they will be shipped to the Rotterdam seaport to be transported to Beni Suef.

These turbines are the largest in the world and once installed in the combined cycle power plant, Beni Suef will supply over 21 million people with electricity to ensure a better quality of life. Siemens plans on improving the current situation by next year after the three new combined-cycle power plants (Beni Suef, New Capital and Burullus) start generating power for the national grid.
