Cairo –  Orascom Construction has announced the inauguration of combined cycle power plants in the New Capital and Burullus area.

Orascom Construction and Germany’s Siemens have completed two of the three mega power plants in Egypt with a total power generation of 9,600-megawatts (MWs), Orascom said in a statement released Tuesday.

“The execution schedule for both projects was extremely challenging particularly at Burullus, which was the first project out of the three mega power plants to finish despite the latest start and the most difficult site conditions,” Orascom added.

Over the past three years, Orascom has added 12,500 MWs to Egypt's national grid, confirming the group's position in the Middle Eastern power sector.
