The Cairo Electricity Production Company, a subsidiary of the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC), has awarded a contract to Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) to upgrade the 750 MW Cairo North CCPP Module I located 20 km north of Cairo. The plant uses gas turbines provided by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and steam turbines by Hitachi. The upgrade would increase output, enhance generation efficiency and cut downtime losses. The upgraded parts to be supplied by MHPS for the gas turbines include spare rotors, an upgraded control system and parts of steam turbines and generators, among others. The Japanese Official Development Assistance through the Japan International Cooperation Agency will provide funding for the project.
