El Burullus Power Plant Project, conducted in 2016, was one of the most important mega-projects in decades at the time of its happening. For Misr for Engineering Works, it was the biggest supply for GH cranes offshore in the company’s history.
As is the norm for many countries in the MENA region, Egypt’s power supply has been facing some reliability issues and unplanned power outages due to the population’s increased demand. Accordingly, the Egyptian government aimed to develop a reliable and sustainable power supply by designing, supplying, and delivering three combined cycle power plants in Beni Suef, New Capital, and Burullus.
Utilizing Misr for Engineering Works’ four 200, 30, and 12.5-ton double girder EOTs; four 140, 25, and 10-ton double girder EOTS; and twelve 10- and 12.5-ton single girder EOTs, the 4.8-GW combined cycle power plants project came to life in a record-setting time of 27.5 months from financial closure.
