Egypt and Sudan will complete their 150 megawatt electricity grid link project in three months, official sources in the Egyptian Ministry of Electricity said on Monday.

The interconnection project with Sudan will be the starting point for more electrical linkage plans between Egypt and other African countries, the sources told Amwal Al Ghad.

Egypt is already electrically interconnected with Jordon and Libya. In addition, Egypt signed a memorandum of understanding with Cyprus and Greece to interconnect electrically, which will make Egypt a central hub for electricity linkage between three continents.
