Elsewedy Electric wins Cairo substation cable contract
Elsewedy Electric’s subsidiary Egytech Cables and the Egyptian Chinese Company have won a contract to install 220-kilovolt electric cables at the East Cairo-Cairo international Stadium substation.
Elsewedy Electric will implement the first line of the East Cairo-Cairo Stadium transformer substation starting from the East Cairo transformer station to the stadium transformer.
The second line will be installed by the Egyptian Chinese Company and will extend over 3.75 kilometres, starting from the stadium station towards the transformer of East Cairo.
Three local and foreign companies initially submitted their financial and technical offers to compete for this bid previously launched by the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Co (EETC) for supplying and installing the 220-kilovolt cables at the East Cairo-Cairo Stadium station.
These companies are Elsewedy Electric, China’s Hengtong, and the Egyptian Chinese Company.
The project will be carried out on a turnkey basis, while EETC and the bid’s winners are in talks over the final items of the project, which paves the way for signing the contract this month.
