Egypt Studies 1700-megwatt Power Project in Red Sea

In an attempt to grapple with growing energy shortage, Egypt’s current interim government is studying a project to establish a 1700-megwatt power plant in the Red Sea coast area.

During a ministerial meeting on Saturday, Egypt’s Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb called on reviewing the details of the projects. Mehleb said he welcomes all the projects that aim to reach effective and quick solutions for the country’s energy crisis nightmare.
