The meeting was attended by Egypt’s Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy Mohamed Shaker, President and CEO of Siemens Energy Christian Bruch and Managing Director of Siemens Energy in Egypt Engineer Layla El-Hares.

During the meeting, Sisi expressed appreciation for the achievements reached by the Siemens company in implementing development projects and its successful efforts in establishing power plants in Egypt, according to the Egyptian presidency.

Moreover, the president stressed his aspiration to benefit from the company’s expertise in several development sectors, including new and renewable energy and electricity interconnection.

El-Sisi added that the country could benefit from Siemens’ expertise regarding the professional, technical and vocational training programs provided to Egyptian personnel, thus consolidating the German standards of high performance and accurate production.

On his side, Kaiser praised the fruitful cooperation with Egypt across numerous energy projects. The most notable of which, he said, are the three gas-fired combined cycle power plants that have become the backbone of the Egyptian power grid.

Siemens considers this project one of the prominent icons in the history of the company since its inception, he said.

The Beni Suef, Burullus and New Capital power plants, which started operation in 2018, generate a total capacity of 14,400 MW.
