The Italian "EDISON" and the Egyptian "AL-QALAA holding" started implementing a combined cycle power plant at Abu Qir area with capacity of 180 MW. The estimated cost of 100 million Euros shall be split in half between the two companies. Each company will be responsible for financing its share. Edison said that they will tender civil works, after the completion of the land lease agreement and supply of gas for power station.

Edison plan is to use part of its natural gas share from the under development new gas discovered well at Abu Qir area to generate electrical power through this new power plant, to sell the generated electrical power to EETC.

The plant is planned to built on through a Build, Own & Operate (BOO) agreement with EETC.

The plant is equipment is planned to be relocated from an existing plant in Italy and to be operated with 50% efficiency. It shall be capable of operating for 20 years with this high efficiency.

Edison has targeted to begin excavation of the gas well at Abu Qir end of 2016, to produce between 100 and 150 million cubic feet per day. The gas was expected to be used to produce electric power from the CC plant, without adding any financial burden on the company.
