It has combined extensive production capabilities and in-depth VVER expertise of Atomenergomash with high performance of GE equipment building based on the Aabelle half-speed technology and the company's proven track record in nuclear power engineering.

Under the contract, the company will be responsible for designing, manufacturing and supplying four sets of steam turbines, condensers, generators and select auxiliary equipment, and for technical field advisory services during erection and commissioning of supplied equipment at the NPP site. 

As per the deal, over 50 per cent of the equipment will be manufactured in Russia.

The El Dabaa nuclear power plant will comprise Arabelle half-speed steam turbines and Gigatop 4-pole generators manufactured by General Electric. 

Ilya Vergizaev, the general director of AAEM, said: "I am positive that eleven-year long cooperation of Atomenergomash Engineering Division and GE Power in developing the joint venture's high-tech competencies both in the field of engineering nuclear turbine island equipment and in development of advanced production technologies, will provide a principled framework for successful implementation of this project."

GE’s Steam Power CEO Andreas Lusch said: "As Egypt works to diversify its energy production and to support its growing economy, the El Dabaa nuclear power plant, equipped with GE Power’s Arabelle technology, will help Egypt deliver on their ambitious goals."
