The combined-cycle Banha power plant began commercial operation in January 2014, and is powered with two GE 9FA gas turbines and one steam turbine. The 750 MW of power is enough to provide electricity for more than 700,000 homes.

GE signed a five year contractual service agreement (CSA) in 2015 with the owner of the plant, the Middle Delta Electricity Production Company, for the Banha generation facility


In 2015, GE installed 2.7GW of turbines under Egypt’s $2.5bn fast-track programme to boost the country’s generating capacity for the peak summer period.
