Egypt, Cyprus and Greece are planning to appoint a consultant for the electrical interconnection project between the three countries by the end of the year.

Four consulting offices were nominated to undertake feasibility studies for the planned interconnection project, according to a report in Daily News English quoting a senior official at the Ministry of Electricity.

The appointed consultant will prepare technical and financial studies of the proposed interconnection.

Sabah Mashali, head of the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company, told Daily News Egypt that the Egyptian government was coordinating with Cyprus and Greece to select a consultant for the project.
