Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli has met in Shanghai with board members of a power consortium comprising Shanghai Electric and Dongfang Electric.

The meeting, held on the sidelines of the China International Import Expo (CIIE), tackled future investments by the consortium in Egypt in fields including clean coal technology and renewable energy.

The coalition has won a contract to establish a power plant in Hamrawein, the Red Sea, using the clean coal technology.

At their meeting with Madbouli, the consortium's top officials asserted that the project will be totally safe and meet world standards with nearly zero emissions.

An Egyptian delegation is scheduled to visit China to inspect a similar power plant, noted the officials.

As infrastructure, environment and construction studies are about to be completed, the project will kick off later in November, according to the officials.

The premier, for his turn, reiterated his call for shortening the timetable of the project to three years only.
