Alstom Grid has signed a contract with Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) for the supply and delivery of an energy management system (EMS) replacing the existing National Control Centre in Giza and its back up in Abassia.

Alstom claims that EETC will benefit from its e-terra suite of EMS software applications to secure grid reliability, stability, security and management of interconnections with neighbouring countries Libya and Syria through Jordan at optimized cost.

The solution also includes a market management system that can provide EETC with real time information on tariffs to both producers and consumers.

Alstom Grid senior vice president of automation Jean-Michel Cornille said that Alstom Grid focuses on intelligent solutions that respond to the fast evolving challenges of energy efficiency, network reliability and stability, and the integration of renewable energy into the grid.
