Hitachi to connect Gulf of Suez wind farm with Egypt national power grid
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 19 - 01 - 2022

Hitachi Energy, formerly Hitachi ABB Power Grids, is delivering to Vestas a grid integration solution to connect the 250-megawatt Gulf of Suez 1 Wind Farm to Egypt's national power grid.
Vestas is the world's leading supplier of wind turbines1 and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), and it was ranked the world's leading supplier of wind turbines in 2020 for the fifth year in a row.
The solution will collect all the power generated by the 70 Vestas wind turbines and feed it safely and reliably into the high-voltage power grid for transmission across the country, helping to advance Egypt's energy system to be more sustainable, flexible and secure.
It will ensure the power is transferred constantly at the correct voltage and frequency, even under variable wind conditions when the power generated fluctuates, Hitachi added in a statement.
Gulf of Suez 1 wind farm is part of the Egyptian government's plan to produce 20 percent of its installed capacity from renewable sources by 2022 and 42 percent by 2035. The wind farm will generate around 1,000 gigawatt-hours of clean energy and avoid the emission of 560,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year, while producing enough renewable energy to power almost 300,000 Egyptian homes.
Mohamed Hosseiny, Country Managing Director of Egypt & North Africa at Hitachi Energy.
"We are proud to be contributing to Egypt's efforts to transition to renewable energy," said Mohamed Hosseiny, country managing director for Egypt and North Africa at Hitachi Energy.
"Our grid integration and power quality solutions and expertise ensure variable energy sources like wind power are transferred smoothly and reliably into national power transmission systems, advancing a sustainable energy future for all."
Hitachi Energy worked closely with Vestas to determine the most safe and reliable grid integration solution for the plant, the statement read. The solution includes a gas-insulated substation of modular pre-assembled and pre-tested design for fast and simple installation, it added.
Gulf of Suez 1 is one of several wind farms either in operation or under development in the Gulf of Suez, where wind speeds are ideal.
