RIYADH: Egypt is taking measures to strengthen power linkage lines with neighboring countries such as Jordan, Sudan and Libya to ensure uninterrupted electricity supply to the country, Asharq Al-Awsat quoted Egyptian Minister of Electricity Mohamed Shaker as saying.

The minister said the country is also considering expanding its efforts to Europe through maritime cables to fill existing gaps between supply and demand.

Shaker said the launch of power projects to connect with Libya is a strategic goal for the two countries.

The ministry is studying a huge project for power linkage with Cyprus, Crete and Greece.

The Egyptian Nuclear Power Plants Authority recently submitted the necessary documents to obtain permission to start construction on the first nuclear plant in El-Dabaa, Marsa Matrouh, to generate 4,800 MW of electricity.
