Solar technology is the fastest-growing renewable technology across the Middle East and Africa. Driven by a growing demand for clean energy, solar offers limitless carbon-free electricity and thermal energy. The most commonly used system is photovoltaic (PV) solar, which is scalable and adaptable to different applications and situations.
Whether you are a utility company or commercial enterprise, our hallmark turnkey solutions will oversee your project from design to commissioning and maintenance.
Elsewedy Electric have joined forces with EDF (Electricité de France) to develop, finance, build and operate two solar PV power plants in Benban and Kom Ombo, Aswan Province. With a colossal 130 (2x65) MWp, the estimated annual 290 GWh of electricity will power over 140,000 households while saving over 120,000 tons of CO2. Benban is a flagship project for the Egyptian government’s Renewable Energies Feed-in-Tariff program.
We are building a hybrid solar photovoltaic project on 250,000 m2 of land near Juba, the capital of South Sudan. The plant will be operational by late-2020. The project consists of a 20 MWP photovoltaic park, a 35 megawatts-hour battery storage system and an in-house training center. We will handle engineering, procurement and installation of the project – a first for the region. Financed by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), the estimated annual 29 million kWh of clean energy produced will power over 58,000 households while saving 12,000 tons of CO2 a year.
