Ansaldo Energia has won a trio of contracts in Egypt worth over €240m ($266m).

The first two deals are for the conversion to combined cycle of two power plants – Al Shabab and West Damietta – owned by Egyptian Electricity Holding Co, the state electricity authority which manages over 90 per cent of the country’s poAnsaldo Energia turbinewer generation capacity.

They involve the supply and commissioning of three steam turbines of 265 MW each, including the relative hydrogen-cooled generators, air condensers, transformers and auxiliary systems.

The third contract is for the open cycle power plant at Al Mahmoudia, operated by Elsewedy Power System Projects International. Ansaldo will supply two AE94.2 gas turbines rated about 170 MW each and the relative generators, plus engineering, erection and startup services.

These orders will bring Ansaldo Energy’s installed capacity in Egypt to 4000 MW.
