Norway’s Scatec Solar has completed grid connection for its entire 390 MW portfolio in Egypt in the form of six solar projects. All the plants with 65 MW capacity each are now operational at the Benban Solar Complex in Egypt’s Aswan where Scatec Solar says it is the largest developer.
It is also the company’s largest project ever which CEO Raymond Carlsen said was completed in just over 16 months. Power generated will be supplied to the Government of Egypt under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
The entire capacity uses bifacial solar PV technology making it the company’s first (see Scatec Solar To Use Bifacial Solar For Egypt Projects). The six projects are designed to generate 870 GWh of clean power annually.
These projects take the company’s total operational and under construction capacity to 1.9 GW as it aims to achieve 4.5 GW in operation and under construction by the end of 2021.
