Egypt-Damanhour Combined Cycle Power Plant Project-Summary ESIA-07 2015


The main objective of the Damanhour power plant project, subject of this Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), is to support socio-economic development in Egypt over the medium-term with expected GDP growth of about 5 – 6% by expanding the power infrastructure thus improving the security and reliability of power supply to all economic sectors. A gap between the supply and demand has been increasing during the last few years leading to power shortages of 4,000 – 5,000 MW during the summer peak period resulting in load shedding.
