A Chinese consortium formed by two power generation equipment makers has officially won the EPC contract for a coal-fired power plant in Egypt, according to the Xinhua news agency.

Dongfang Electric Corp. and Shanghai Electric Group signed the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction deal with the Egyptian Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy Sunday night in Beijing. The consortium beat two rivals to win the EPC contract tender for $4.4 billion in June this year.

The consortium will provide six ultra-supercritical, near-zero polluting coal-fired power generating units with a total generating capacity of 6.6 GW for the Hamrawein power plant over 800 km from Cairo, Egypt's capital.

The construction of the plant, Africa’s largest, will take six years to complete.
