EGYPT :Damietta Barrage Small Hydropower Project Eng. Maher Aziz Energy & Environmental Consultant
Background • Host Country: Egypt • Project Proponent: Hydro-Power Plants Executive Authority Project Sponsors: Ministry of Electricity & Energy (MOEE) • Ministry of Irrigation & Water Resource Other Project Participants: (KfW)
Technical description of the project activity • The project’s purpose : it is the generation of electrical energy. The project would have a total investment cost (excluding customs and duties) of approximately € 28.6 to 29.8 million, depending on foundation conditions. Construction would take about two and a half years (30 months).
Technical description of the project activity (contd.) • The project involves construction of a power plant within the river channel immediately downstream of the existing Damietta Barrage • The installed capacity would be 13.0 MW, with actual hydropower generation rising from 81 GWh in 2010 to 84 GWh in 2017, as river flows increase.
Technical description of the project activity (contd.) • The power generated would be supplied to the local grid by a 66 kV double circuit overhead transmission line running for about 450 m to a new 66 kV substation north of the WRC campus, and from there by a new 66 kV overhead line for some 300 m to an existing overhead 66 kV transmission line.
Cost of Damietta Barrage Small Hydropower Project (1) Cost level 1st quarter 2003 (2) Excluding customs and duties
Technical description of the project activity (contd.) • The construction time for the project is about 2.5 years, and the earliest year of construction is expected to be 2005. The earliest year of commissioning and operation of the project will be 2007. • The environmental assessment carried our during the study considers that the project is regarded as addition to the existing barrage and its head pond, and no re-location of people is involved.
Location of the project activity: • Host country party(ies) : Egypt • Region: Qalyoubia Governorate • City: Al-Qanater Al-Khairyy • The Damietta Barrage small hydropower project is located on the Nile river branche namely: Damitta branch at Qalyoubia Governorate
Category: “Renewable electricity generation in grid connected applications”. • Technology: Bulb, directly coupled generator.
How GHGs are reduced : • Applying the methodology described in section B.2, the project will generate an annual reduction of 47,058 tCO2 and a total reduction of 988,218 tCO2 over 21 years.
Damietta Barrage Small Hydro-Power Project ERs Public funding of the project activity No public funding is provided for this Project.
Baseline methodology • Methodology for ex post monitoring of electricity generation from the project and its impacts on emission from the operation and expansion of electric sector”.
Justification of Baseline Scenario • The project type is not a common practice. • The project type lacks priority within the planning scheme of the country. • Perceived technology risk.
The outline of the method to calculate the ERs is as follows: Determination of baseline emission rate (as per section B3) (tCO2/MWh) Monitoring generation output from the Project (MWh) Calculation of ERs generated by the Project using the formula: Periodic annual electricity dispatched to the grid X baseline emission rate for this period (tCO2)
The net annual generation is estimated to be: 86,663 MWh • The baseline emission rate is: 0.543 tCO2/MWh • The net annual reductions are estimated to be: 47,058 tCO2 • The net reductions over a 21-year crediting lifetime are estimated to be: 988,218 tCO2
Environmental impacts • The environmental assessment has concentrated on identifying environmental and social factors which might affect the project layout, design and cost. • A limited consultation process was carried out, appropriate to the level of detail of the study. Persons and organizations consulted are listed in the main documents. • The screening process carried out in this IEE has not identified any significant negative environmental impacts likely to be caused by the project.
Stakeholders comments • There have been consultations with the farmers downstream from the irrigation district who use the water stored in the Barrage. There have also been consultations with affected landowners along the route of the transmission line. • Most of the comments appreciate and welcome the project.
