Big 5

A coalition consisting of Egypt’s ElSewedy Electric and Arab Contractors is bidding to carry out a power station project in Iraq’s Samawah city.

ElSewedy’s Vice President Wael Hamdy spoke to Amwal Al Ghad on Tuesday, announcing a new alliance with Arab Contractors, so as to start work on the Samawah power station project in the coming period if granted approval by the Iraqi government.

The Egyptian official referred that the ElSewedy-Arab Contractors alliance is competing against Korean, Turkish and Greek consortia over winning the Iraqi power project.

However, the Iraqi government had not yet set the date of announcing the winning consortium in the light of the current security instability in Iraq, he added.

With undetermined investment cost yet, the Samawah power station project is set to be with a capacity of 750 MW, Hamdy noted.

Meanwhile, ElSewedy is currently implementing, in coalition with Arab Contractors, another project in Iraq, the Diwaniyah power station, with a capacity of 500 MW.
