A Direct Current Transmission Line to transmit 2 000 MW with 1 000 K.V. Voltage from Cairo (Egypt) to Khartoum and Gedaref (Sudan), as the first phase of the giant electrical interconnection grid parallel to the continental road Cairo – Cape Town which is suggested to use a mixture of alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) solutions according to the results of technical and economic feasibility studies. The project objectives are to:
- Create a harmonised Integrated Continental Transmission Network (ICTN)
- Integrate and create the EAPP electricity market, which is an important step in the attainment of the goal to establish the Africa.
- Single Electricity Masterplan (AfSEM) through the Continental Power Systems Masterplan (CMP)
