Energy control center to undergo renovations worth LE100 million

Minister of Energy and Electricity Hassan Younis has signed a contract with a French company to renovate the National Energy Control Center (NECC). The cost of refurbishing is estimated at LE100 million. The Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company is set to finance the project.

Younis said the French company will modernize the control systems, communication networks, and information transfer systems, among other things.

Renovations are to be completed over a year and a half and are expected to enable better control of power generation stations throughout the country. The renovations include an early warning system to warn against overloads.

The overhaul should ensure safer and more economical operation of the electricity grid.

The NECC was inaugurated in 1983 to manage the electricity grid, using the latest technology.
