Hideleco to complete El-Owainat transmission line by 2020 end
Company's business volume exceeds EGP 500m this year
Published in Daily News Egypt on 02 - 05 - 2020

The High Dam Electrical and Industrial Projects Company (Hideleco) aims to complete the 220kV overhead transmission line between El-Owainat and Gabal Al-Kamel in New Valley governorate before the end of the year, in cooperation with the Military Production Ministry. The new line serves the 1.5m feddan reclamation project and other development projects in the region.
The annual business volume of Hideleco has exceeded EGP 500m so far, and the company seeks to increase it next year through expanding outside Egypt. Hideleco is a subsidiary of the Holding Company for Construction and Development, affiliated to the Ministry of Public Enterprises Sector.
Kamal Koraytem, Chairperson of Hideleco, said the company completed 50% of the Tima/Girga transmission line in Sohag governorate, and construction works were underway in Esna/ Sebayea line in Qena and Nubaria /Beheira line.
The company also carries out some projects outside Egypt, namely in Uganda and Yemen. Hideleco is now implementing the Mukalla power plant in Yemen's Hadramout. It is scheduled to be finished in the second half of the year, with ongoing negotiations with the Yemeni side over more projects.
Koraytem pointed out the 55kV Benban / Toshka giant transmission line has been implemented in cooperation with Kahromika company. About 60% of the 220kV Qena / Nagaa Hammadi transmission line have been completed. Moreover, the new 500kV transformer station in Giza's Hawamdeyah is under construction.
He stressed that the work rates in the company's projects were not affected by the coronavirus crisis or the curfew, as most of these projects are located in desert and remote areas. He noted that the company is committed to the delivery dates of these projects while providing incentives to workers and applying strict precautionary measures to protect them.
Koraytem noted that several medium and low voltage transmission lines are being implemented to meet the requirements of development projects in El-Owainat and Toshka. Additionally, work is underway to renew transmission lines starting from the Hawamdeyah region all the way to the Upper Egypt governorates. These lines will be developed at a cost of EGP 120m within the framework of the state's programme to renew the national grid in Upper Egypt during the coming years.
