ProEnergy, Egyptian power producer partner on aero maintenance

ProEnergy recently expanded its global reach in aero-engine maintenance services, signing a total-care service agreement (TCSA) with a subsidiary of the Egyptian Electricity Holding Co (EEHC) for eight of its LM6000 generating units. The state-owned company operates more than 55,000 MW of generation capacity and manages electricity delivery to more than 38-million consumers.

East Delta Electricity Production Co (EDEPC) is the EEHC subsidiary responsible for operation and maintenance of the two plants covered under the contract—288-MW Sharm El Sheikh expansion (five LM6000 PCs and one LM6000 PF) and 84-MW Port Said (two LM6000 PCs). The contract includes management of all maintenance events for the gas-turbine packages—including, but not limited to, hot sections, combustors, and major overhauls. Photos of the plants are below.

An important aspect of the arrangement is EEHC’s commitment to decarbonization of electric generation, which aligns with ProEnergy’s goals. In 2022, one unit at Sharm El Sheikh successfully operated on a hydrogen/natural-gas blend during COP27, the 27th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

An Egyptian delegation participated in PROENERGY 23, sharing its LM engine experiences, including operation on the hydrogen/natural-gas blend.

Note that Tanmeia is an Egyptian company engaged in power, energy, transportation, and associated O&M.
