West Damietta’s Conversion Power Plant Project, debuted in April 2017, is a key station converting simple-cycle electricity generation into a combined-cycle power plant in Egypt using both a gas and steam turbine together. During this project, Misr for Engineering Works was delightfully catering to the Egyptian government itself.
The project was a consortium with General Electric, where we together converted the existing simple cycle power plant into a combined-cycle one with an additional capacity of 250 MW to the then available 500 MW.
With the establishment of this power plant, the plant produces 50% more electricity using the same amount of fuel than it did when it was a simple-cycle plan, with the waste heat being routed to the nearby steam turbine and generating further power. Due to the project being a significantly heavy-duty one, Misr for Engineering Works brought into service the infamous 85-ton double girder EOT.
