The Administrative Capital for Urban Development (ACUD) has selected Benha Electronics and Suntech Electronics for the construction of several solar photovoltaic power plants in the new Administrative Capital (NAC) of Egypt. These plants will have a cumulative capacity of 18 MWp.
The results of a tender process have just been made public by the Administrative Capital for Urban Development (ACUD), the body created by the Egyptian government for the construction of the New Administrative Capital (NAC) of Egypt. Benha Electronics and Suntech Electronics have been selected to build several solar photovoltaic systems on the rooftops of several administrative buildings of the NAC.
These systems will be built on the roofs of 65 public buildings, with a combined capacity of 18 MWp and a total investment of £140 million, about $9 million. The implementation of this project is in line with the Egyptian authorities’ policy to make the NAC a really green city in the middle of the desert. Electricity supply is a key sector for achieving this goal.
As part of this policy, in December 2019, the Egyptian authorities selected the Arab Industrialization Organization (AIO) and the Madkour Group to build several solar photovoltaic power plants with a cumulative capacity of 20 MWp in the new administrative capital (NAC) of Egypt.
These are exactly 10 small octagonal-shaped solar photovoltaic power plants. Each plant will be built on the roof of a building. It will be capable of producing 1.6 MWp, giving a total capacity of 16 MW for the 10 solar power plants. Also as part of this contract, OAI and Madkour will build four small solar power plants on four other adjoining buildings within the military complex at NAC. Each installation will be capable of producing 250 kWp.
