Sabbour submits 2 offers to execute Egypt’s first nuclear power plant mandates

Egypt’s Sabbour Consulting Company has submitted two offers to execute some works at Dabaa nuclear power station, said its chairman Hussein Sabbour on Thursday.

This flagship is the first nuclear power plant planned for Egypt. It will locate at Dabaa city in Matrouh Governorate, 130km northwest of Cairo, on a space of around 56 square metres.

These works will include the engineering design of the two phases in Dabaa nuclear power station, Sabbour further told Amwal Al Ghad, adding that the design works will cost 40 billion Egyptian pounds ($2.6 billion).

Earlier in September, Egyptian Prime Minister Sherif Ismail said that the country signed a contract with Russia to build Dabaa nuclear power station. The contract was finalised and approved by the Cabinet.

Sisi has also invited Russian President Vladimir Putin to attend a celebration marking the beginning of construction of the nuclear power station.
