Hitachi ABB to boost efficiency of Delta Zone network

ArabFinance: The state-owned Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) appointed a consortium comprising Hitachi ABB Power Grids and Elsewedy Electric T&D, a subsidiary of Elsewedy Electric, to establish the new Delta Zone Regional Control Centre (DRCC), the company announced in an emailed statement.

The goal of the DRCC, located at Mansoura City in the Delta region, North Egypt, is to improve the reliability and efficiency of the electricity network in the region and contribute to country’s economic development and sustainability goals.

Under the deal, Hitachi ABB Power Grids will provide EETC with its Network Manager supervisory control and energy management system with an advanced interface and a user experience that provides enhanced situational awareness.

The transfer of real time date from the connected substations to the control center is enabled by the dedicated state-of-the-art fiber optic telecommunication foundation based on Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ industry-leading FOX615 hybrid communication system.

However, the new system will enable the monitoring, control and optimization of the power transmission grid, leading to increased resilience, safety and efficiency of the energy supply for more than 26 million people.

In return, the solution will enable EETC to effectively control and supervise the power transmission network, including the monitoring of power generation facilities in the Delta Zone.

The project is expected to be completed in two years.

“The Delta Zone is significant to the country’s growth and development, and a stable and resilient electricity infrastructure is vital to support that growth,” Mohamed Shaker, Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy, commented.

Additionally, Hitachi ABB Power Grids collaborated with EETC to modernize the Canal Regional Control Centre, which is used to monitor the performance of the electrical network for the seven governorates in the Suez Canal’s area, including Ismailia, Port Said, Suez, North Sinai, South Sinai, Red Sea, and Sharqeya, serving nearly 12 million citizens.
