Technology will help save energy and maintenance costs, reduce carbon emissions, make the facility greener and future-proof it for new innovations  

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, July 22, 2020:   Schneider Electric has been selected by DP World, a leading enabler of global trade, to implement an end-to-end smart energy MV, LV distribution system at DP World’s Sokhna Basin 2 Terminal, situated near the southern entrance to the Suez Canal on the Red Sea.
The solution will improve safety, save on electricity and maintenance costs, and reduce carbon emissions at one of Egypt’s largest ports. The EcoStruxure Power solution is Internet-Of-Things-enabled, which will allow DP World to run a variety of digital applications, analytics and other technologies across the system, to further improve operations and ensure business continuity.


The full installation will include both hardware and software to manage, monitor and optimize the power across Basin 2’s electrical distribution network. The system will give DP World Sokhna’s staff, both those on-site as well as people working remotely, 


full control of the power grid at Basin 2, and ensure that the electrical system is functioning up to the top recognized international standards, so operations can run smoothly. Predictive maintenance will help reduce downtime at Basin 2, ensuring greater efficiency of DP World’s assets and reduce operational costs.
DP World’s Sokhna is part of DP World's international network of 127 business units in 51 countries across 6 continents. The port’s location on the Red Sea, just below the southern entrance to the Suez Canal, is ideally suited to handle cargo transiting through one of the world's busiest commercial waterways which facilitates trade between East and West. The expansion of Basin 2 at the port has been developed at a cost of US$520 million, taking DP World’s total investments in Egypt to US$1.6 billion. 


Suhail Al Banna, CEO and Managing Director of DP World Middle East and Africa, said: “We have a forward thinking and long-term approach to developing infrastructure, and therefore we invest in smart technology and innovations that enhance our operational efficiency, which enables us to deliver world class logistics solutions and services to our customers. The implementation of this energy distribution system is an example of this approach.”
Once operational, DP World’s total handling capacity at the Sokhna port will almost double to 1.75TEU, from a current 970,000. Basin 2 includes a 1,300-metre quay with additional 750 meter already in use in Phase 1, and a 350,000 square metre container yard. It will also link two operational basins in the port as one entity.


“Once this project is completed, the DP World’s Sokhna Basin 2 terminal will be the most technologically advanced port in Egypt,” said Walid Sheta, Schneider Electric’s Cluster President, North East Africa and Levant. “This is a facility that will redefine operational efficiency for the country’s logistics sector, and we’re proud to play a part in DP World’s vision for this sector in the country.”
