Consultancy Contract Awarded for 50MW Solar Project in Egypt

According to NREA Chairperson, Mohamed El-Khayat, the contract was awarded to INTEC because their technical and financial offer outperformed other bids in the tender.

While INTEC will carry out consultancy services and supervise the implementation of the PV plant, the EPC contractor has yet to be announced.

“So far three EPC companies, including Belectric, NARI Group Corporation, and Vikram Solar, technically qualified whereas two companies were excluded, one for technical reasons and the other withdrew willingly” said Mohamed El-Khayat.  He added that the winning bidder would be announced in December 2019.

The Zafarana plant is the second project executed by the NREA in the framework of its plan to expand the mix of renewable energy projects which currently stand at a total of 5,425MW installed capacity, including 1,375MW of wind power, 1,220MW of photovoltaic cell systems, and 2,830MW of hydro power; all of which were realized through government agreements and projects by the private sector.

NREA’s current projects include the 545MW Zafarana wind farm, 580MW Jabal Al Zait wind farm, the 140MW solar thermal power plant, and the first 26MW solar cell project in Kom Ombo, as well as the huge 1650MW Benban Solar Park Project. Read more
