Project Description

FMO's funding will be used towards constructing a 50 MW PV solar power plant in BenBan complex. The Project is one of the two solar PV plants to be developed by the same sponsors for which FMO will provide a B-loan under the EBRD umbrella.

The Project will be developed under the second round of the 1.8GW solar PV Feed-in-Tariff ("FiT") scheme launched by Government of Egypt in October 2016. The scheme aims to support Egypt to diversify its energy sources by exploiting the country's renewable energy potential. The FiT projects will also be among the first private renewable energy investments in Egypt, thus setting the precedent for future developments in the sector.
