Egypt to finalise power linking flagship with Sudan at year-end

Egypt’s Energy Ministry is keen on completing and operating the electricity power link project with Sudan at the end of the year.

The upcoming period will see a number of steps to execute the plan to connect the two countries’ grids with a capacity of 300 megawatts in its first phase, according to the ministry’s spokesperson.

The project is the seed for future linking with other African countries, he added.

Egypt and Sudan vowed to strengthen bilateral cooperation during the recent visit of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to Khartoum.
