This study deals with the shortage of electrical power generation in Port Sudan town in Sudan  in 2005, and tries to suggest a solution to this problem. Information on the existing power plant and the grid in the town was analyzed. in addition, an estimation of the power demand on the current grid and its future expansion for ten years was made. Options through which the generation can be improved were presented. The advantages and limitations of every option were discussed, and a combined  cycle power plant was chosen. Economic analysis has been carried out for the combined cycle power plant, and finally, the study suggested that the appropriate option based on technical and economic aspects was to use a combined  cycle power plant.
