Four of Siemens’ H-class gas turbines have arrived at the Beni Suef power plant in Egypt. Two of the 400-MW turbines alongside six 500-kV generator transformers were placed on their foundations, marking an important milestone towards the commissioning of the plant.

The Beni Suef plant will start supplying its first electricity to the national energy grid as early as winter 2016/2017. To achieve that, it will initially be operated in so-called simple cycle mode. By subsequently adding heat exchangers and steam turbines it will be expanded into combined cycle mode reaching a total installed capacity of 4.8 GW. This is enough to supply around 15 million Egyptians with electricity.
