Scatec Solar reaches commercial operation for its fourth 65 MW power plant in Egypt

-

- Advertisment -

Oslo, 19 August 2019: Scatec Solar and partners have grid connected and reached commercial operation for another 65 MW of the 390 MW Benban project in Egypt. Scatec Solar now has 260 MW in operation in Egypt and expects to have completed the remaining two plants out of six over the next couple of months.

The Benban solar power plant will be Scatec Solar’s largest project in operation and is the company’s first solar plant with bi-facial solar panels, capturing the sun from both sides of the panels to increase the total clean energy generation.

In April 2017, Scatec Solar with its partners KLP Norfund and Africa 50 signed a 25-year Power Purchase Agreements with the Government of Egypt for delivery of electricity from six solar plants, equal in size, totaling 390 MW. The estimated annual 870 GWh of electricity produced from Scatec Solar’s plants in Benban will avoid about 350,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually and provide energy for more than 420,000 Egyptian households.
