Sudan to boost hydroelectric power generation by 500MW

In July, the technical committee of the economic development sector at Sudan's Council of Ministers approved a document compiled by the Ministry of Water and Electricity, which details how to increase the country’s hydroelectric generation capacity by 500MW.

The document titled: “Ministry of Water Resources and Electricity for Enhancing Electricity Power Service plan”, explains how to boost the current hydroelectric capacity from 1,500MW to 2,000MW by 2020, HydroWorld reported.

In addition to hydroelectric power, the document proposes to upgrade thermal power generation from 900MW to 3,555MW, adding a total of 3,155 MW of capacity in five years.

Hydroelectric power projects
In line with its goal, Sudan has plans to complete the 320MW Upper Atbara and Setit hydroelectric power project by March 2016.

The project includes Rumela Dam on Upper Atbarah River and Burdana Dam on Setit River, in eastern Sudan.

The $1.9 billion (ZAR25 billion) twin-dam hydroelectric power project is being developed 12 miles from the Atbarah and Setit rivers' junction and around 50 miles south of the 10MW Khashm el-Girba hydroelectric project, HydroWorld reported.

Not enough power
According to HydroWorld, the Sudanese Ministry of Electricity announced that it routinely faces a 5% deficit in power supply during peak hours.

Sudan’s largest 1,250MW Merowe hydroelectric power project, cannot fully meet the power needs of Khartoum alone, which means that new build generation projects are needed.

In May, a large fire broke out at Metro Dam, roughly 380 kilometers north of Khartoum. The fire caused damage to transformers and cut power supply to a large part of the country.

According to HydroWorld, many areas of Sudan recently witnessed systematic electricity power cuts, causing protests in the capital city of Khartoum as well as a number of other Sudanese cities.

The new electrification plans include connecting the national electricity grid to towns in provinces, which include Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan.

Nice thread, electricity is key in taking our countries out of poverty.What is Sudan's current total generated power? How much is hydro? What is the total power production targetted for 2020 (both hydro & thermal)?
In 2011 Sudan produced 8,917 GWh, and 25% of it was hydro energy.

Don't know the target for 2020 :nuts: but apparently the Grand Renaissance dam in Ethiopia will power all of Eastern Sudan.

Germany’s Siemens to supply five power plants to Sudan


December 3, 2016 (KHARTOUM) - The government-owned Sudanese Thermal Power Generating Company (STPGC) and Germany’s Siemens last Thursday signed an agreement to supply five power plant units.

the five gas turbines, which will be operational by the end of 2017, will deliver will deliver a combined electrical generating capacity of some 850 megawatts for the Sudanese national grid.

In a statement issued Friday, the German company said it would also five associated generators and five control systems.

Three of the machines are destined for Garri Power Station in the North of the Sudanese Capital Khartoum, while the remaining two units will generate electric power further east in Port Sudan on the country’s Red Sea coast.

"Our power plant engineering is making a decisive contribution to very rapidly improving the power supply system in Sudan," said Willi Meixner, CEO of Siemens’ Power and Gas Division.

"We’re thus in a position to help the people of Republic of the Sudan to develop a modern yet affordable electrification system that brings forward efforts to advance the nation’s economic and social development," adds Meixner.

Over 35% of the Sudanese population have access to electricity. 63% of the urban areas are electrified in the east African country.

According to the statistics of 2014, Sudan’s annual electricity consumption has reached 10 billion kWh.

I had posted this in another thread before

Sudan's target is to generate locally 23,000 MW by 2030 (slightly less than what egypt produces now)

as on this map by the ministry,


Its a mixture of different energy sources including dams, thermal power stations etc...

Most of the transmision lines have already been built to connect the country , elfasher line in Darfur is connected and they now working on the line of jineyna on the border with Chad.

The thermal stations are to be built in stages, the white nile thermal station (kosti) is currently operational at 500 MW (as posted by MENA^^) and will expand every few years. Last year they started preparations for the red sea thermal station too (now the government got into a partnership with the germans). about 18,000 MW should come from thermal stations in 2030

4 medium scale dams will be built down the Nile between Khartoum and the Egyptian border such as Dal , shereikh etc they not as big as merowe dam but range from 400-900 MW. They will start on shereikh dam first as soon as work is finished on the upper atbara and setit dams in the east this year

who said that?

Ethiopia will export about 120MW to Sudan in general

east sudan has its own dams U/C and planned power stations
It was several articles, wasn't 100% sure which was why I said apparently. You really expect me to remember the sources after nearly a year? :lol:

Sudan plans construction of first nuclear power plant



Khartoum entered discussions with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) yesterday about the completion of the first Sudanese nuclear plant which will receive technical support from the international organisation.

“A delegation from the General Directorate of Nuclear Generation of the Sudanese Ministry of Water Resources, Irrigation and Electricity met in Vienna with officials of the technical projects of the IAEA,” the official Sudanese news agency SUNA said.

According to SUNA, the meeting was attended by the Director General of the Sudanese Atomic Energy Commission, Abdelilah Musa, and the Secretary General of the National Radiological Control Agency, Mohamed El Hassan Abu-Udnin.

“Sudan is progressing well in building the manpower abilities, the governing of technical institutions, and the legal and legislative frameworks that enable it to meet the standards of the IAEA,” according to engineer Nassir Ahmed Al-Moustafa, director of the General Directorate for Atomic Generation Department of the Ministry of Electricity.

Al-Moustafa praised the technical support provided by the IAEA to Sudan, which has largely contributed to the development of a roadmap towards the establishment of the first nuclear power plant, according to the criteria set by the agency for the peaceful uses of nuclear and atomic energy.

The Sudanese government said that the preliminary surveys to determine the location of the first nuclear plant have been completed and work on the detailed plans would begin by the end of the year.

In December 2016, the Minister of Water Resources, Irrigation and Electricity, Moataz Mousa told Parliament that 2017 would see the start of the construction of the country’s first nuclear plant which would generate 1,200 megawatts of electricity.

Last year Russia’s energy firm ROSATOM announced that it plans to sign a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in peaceful use of atomic energy with Sudan’s Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Energy this year.

In May 2016 the governments of Sudan and China signed a framework agreement for the construction of the east African country’s first nuclear power plant.

Ecofin Agency) - Mubarak Al-Fadil Al-Mahdi (picture), Sudan’s minister of investments, has announced that power developer Scatec Solar might build in the country a 400MW solar plant.

“We invited them to come to discuss a power-sharing agreement. We told them that we are not on for small projects. They said their initial start could be 400 MW,” Al-Fadil told Reuters during an interview.

The project is expected to cost about $450 million. Works are expected to start a year after the related power purchase agreement is concluded. This agreement is actually being prepared by authorities.

With a power production capacity of more than 3000MW, according to the Cia World Factbook, Sudan has an electrification rate of less than 40%, for a population of 37 million people. “Given the growth on demand, we need at least 5,000 new megawatts to build in the country. Renewable is preferable for us,” the minister said.

The official revealed that talks are actually going on for the construction of 280MW of wind power plants by Danish firms.

Egypt-Sudan Electric Interconnection project achieves milestone


Siemens has revealed that the building and connection of the Toshka substation in Egypt, has been completed in record time.

With a turn-around of three months, this paves the way for the realisation of the Egypt-Sudan Electric Interconnection project.

The new 220 kilovolt (kV) air-insulated substation (AIS) will dispatch around 400MW of electricity to secure reliable power transmission coupled with minimal losses of transferred power.

The turnkey substation, which is located near the Egyptian-Sudanese boarders, about 1,300 kilometers away from Cairo, will play a strategic role in the upcoming Egypt-Sudan Electric Interconnection project.

The project links the national grids of both countries, from Toshka city in Egypt to Dongola in Sudan, via a 170-kilometer transmission line. With a difference in peak demand times during the day for each country, the interconnection project will help foster energy exchange, therefore boosting electricity supply and economic growth in both Egypt and Sudan.

“The new project is in-line with Egypt’s national plan to share power with neighbouring countries as well as drive a more dynamic African cooperation in different areas, including energy,” said Sabah Meshaly, Chairman of the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC).

“The extension of Toshka substation marks the first phase of this landmark project, which will expand access and lower the cost of electricity supply to homes and business in Sudan and promote sustainable development.”

Under the agreement Siemens was responsible for project management, engineering, designing, manufacturing and delivering of core components for the extension of substation, along with providing site management, testing and commissioning on a turnkey basis.

“Egypt-Sudan Interconnection project is definitely a unique opportunity to unlock Africa’s vast energy potential,” said Mahmoud Hanafy, Senior Executive Vice President of Siemens Transmission solutions for the Middle East region.

“For our team, this agreement not only represents our continued collaboration on outstanding projects like these, but also our ongoing efforts to adapt to an evolving energy landscape and implement key regional infrastructure projects that support reliable, stable and efficient energy transmission.”

Egypt will benefit through the sale of energy to Sudan, while Sudan will get access to existing and future power plants in Egypt. Both countries will benefit from additional jobs created by construction and installation activities.
