H-class units for Egypt’s mega project

4 August 2016

On 19 May, Siemens celebrated the arrival of four H-class gas turbines at the Beni Suef power plant in Egypt, which will be one of the world’s biggest gas-fired combined-cycle power plant complexes when completed.

Situated around 110 km south of Cairo, the Beni Suef plant is expected start supplying its first electricity to the grid as early as winter 2016/2017. To achieve that, it will initially be operated in simple cycle mode. Subsequently it will be expanded into combined cycle mode reaching a total installed capacity of 4.8 GW.

With its local partners, Siemens will build a total of three natural gas-fired combined cycle power plants with a total capacity of 14.4 GW in Egypt. 4.4 GW of this capacity will be connected to the national grid in only 19 months – from signing to service – which is “six months faster than the world benchmark”, says Siemens.
