Marubeni Corp. and El Sewedy Electric Co. S.A.E (El Sewedy) have completed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Egyptian Electricity Holding Co. (EEHC) in relation to a feasibility study of the construction of an ultra-supercritical coal-fired power plant in the Arab Republic of Egypt.
The Egyptian government has announced a policy to install approximately 12.5 GW worth of new coal-fired power plants by 2022 in order to diversify energy resources. Under this MoU, Marubeni and El Sewedy will conduct a feasibility study for constructing a high-efficiency ultra-supercritical coal-fired power plant in the West Mattrouh region.
Marubeni has a track record in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts of more than 100 GW around the world, of which coal-fired power plant accounts for 40G MW.
