Final overview of the New Administrative Capital
Egypt is planning to build a National Energy Control Center in the NAC.
The Egyptian government plans to build a new National Energy Control Center in the New Administrative Capital (NAC), a large-scale project now under construction in Cairo, Egypt’s capital city.
Until now, Egypt’s Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) has awarded the project’s contract to a consortium consisting of Siemens Smart Infrastructure, a Siemens AG division, and Hassan Allam Construction, a subsidiary of Hassan Allam Holding, Egypt’s leading engineering, construction, and infrastructure company.
The deal is valued $53.4 million, according to Siemens, and the project is slated to be completed by the end of 2022.
A glimpse into the future The National Energy Control Center (NECC) is a government-run
Siemens Spectrum Power 7, the company’s flagship control center platform for transmission management in energy networks, will power the planned National Energy Control Center, which will have a backup control center in Giza.
Grid monitoring and supervisory control, load and wind or solar power generation forecasts, network analysis and optimization, cross-optimized thermal and hydro generation scheduling, as well as generation dispatch and control are all included in the high-performance platform.
The project’s importance
According to EETC Chairperson Sabah Mashally, this initiative is another step toward a reliable, smart, and efficient electrical grid that is critical not only to Egypt’s economic development, but also to the country’s ability to deploy renewable energy sources more quickly.
Following the joint creation of the Egyptian transmission network master plan, the project strengthens Egypt’s and Siemens’ strong and successful cooperation to upgrade the country’s power industry.
First tower completes in Egypt’s NAC
The first office tower in Egypt’s New Administrative Capital was complete according to the contractor CSCEC. Dubbed the C08, the office tower had the final piece of its curtain wall installed at the beginning of the year, making it the first building to be complete in the new capital’s Central Business District (CBD).

The installation of the air corridor was finished satisfactorily.
After 18 hours of hard effort, the lifting and installation of an iconic air corridor in Egypt’s new administrative capital, which is around 141 meters above the earth, was finished successfully. The air corridor connects two office buildings in the NAC’s central business area and is known as the Corridor of China-Egypt Friendship or the Gateway to China-Egypt Cooperation (CBD). It’s composed of steel and weighs 161 tons, with a span of 31.4 meters.
According to reports, this is the first time the CSCEC, which has been contracted to develop the NAC’s CBD, has used the effective process of assembling the air corridor on the ground before lifting and placing it in mid-air in the North African country..
This method, according to some, saves time and effort while also lowering the danger of injury.
Egypt’s government will soon begin relocating to a new government area.
According to a presidential announcement issued in early November 2021, Egypt’s government will begin moving to the government area in the New Administrative Capital (NAC) in December of this year.
According to the announcement, this transfer will kick off a six-month trial period for the new premises, which began building in 2015 on President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s
Though the Covid-19 pandemic slowed construction on the US$ 45 billion city, according to NAC spokesman Khaled Husseiny, “approximately 98 percent of the construction work in the city’s government district, which comprises 34 government buildings that will house the 32 ministries of the nation’s cabinet along with two other state authorities, has been completed.”
The government district, which is meant to be the focal center of the NAC, has been designed in a distinct pharaonic style.
