UNDP Country Office - EGYPT | Published September 28, 2016 - Deadline October 27, 2016
Back ground and Motivation:Improving Energy Efficiency of Lighting and other building appliances (IEELA) project is a nationally project executed by the Ministry of Electricity and Energy, its objective is to facilitate a comprehensive market transformation of the Egyptian market towards the use of more energy efficient electrical appliances at a level where cost efficiency is proven.The project is the second phase of the GEF/UNDP Energy Efficiency Improvement and Greenhouse Gas Reduction (EEIGGR) project previously implemented by the Ministry of Electricity and Energy through the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company, and which has already demonstrated the technical and financial feasibility of using both CFLs and electronic ballasts and developed minimum energy performance standards and energy efficiency labels for 5 electrical appliances namely: refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, electric water heaters and CFLs The new project will build on the results of this previous project by addressing the remaining barriers to complete the required market transformation.Minimum energy performance standards and labeling programs offer a large energy-saving potential that can improve end-use efficiency and significantly contribute to sustainable development. The target for this project component is to strengthen the implementation, regular updating and enforcement of the standards and labels developed under the earlier UNDP/GEF EEIGGR project and to expand the energy efficiency standards and labeling schemes to other electrical appliances by building on the most recent international developments in this field.Technical Specification of the Electric motor’s Testing FacilityThe targeted Electric Motor laboratory should be capable of measuring efficiency of residential and industrial motors (AC/DC/ Variable speed motor, single phase / three phase) from 30 W up to 15 KW at 50/60 Hz and 35,000 rpm should be conducting the energy consumption test, that complies with the Egyptian standard, as well as the international standards IEC 60034-1 , IEC 60034-2-1, IEC 60034-2-3, IEC 60034-30-1 and IEC 60034-31 for energy efficiency.The testing facility normally contains establishing test room, control panel, instrumentation and any additional required equipment as per ISO.The measurements phases through an integrated Data Acquisition System (DAS) by the use ofComputing workstation with printing capabilities.The following are key components of the targeted testing laboratory of measuring energyConsumption of motor until 15KW.Testing Room SpecificationsThe testing room will be available at (G.O.E.I.C), the site visit will be available to the contractors according to their requirement, size should be capable of testing 3 Electric Motor at the same time and the distance between any two adjacent Units under Test (UUT) stands should be separated enough to comply with safety requirements.Power Supply UnitsA voltage stabilizer and power conditioning apparatus (Variac) for unit under the test with the ability to provide single phase source or three phase source and the possibility of setting the voltage at different values and the voltage variation should be not more than ±1%.
