Sterling and Wilson Wins EPC Solar PV Plant Contract in Egypt

  • Indian EPC, Sterling and Wilson has signed a USD 127.5 million construction order in Kom Ombo, Egypt.
  • The Indian multinational EPC player said it secured the order from “Saudi Arabia’s leading renewable energy company,” but it did not name the company. 
  • Speculation is that it is ACWA Power. 
  • The plant will be commissioned before March 2022, according to the company.

SWSL is one of the largest solar EPC and O&M solutions providers in the world. It has already worked on five projects, or more than 322 MWp, in Egypt’s Benban Solar Park.

“Winning this project is an important milestone and further strengthens our focus in the MENA region, which has been a key market for us,” said Mr Bikesh Ogra, Director and Global CEO of Sterling and Wilson Solar.

Ogra added that said the company’s latest plant would be one of Egypt’s largest stand alone solar projects.
