$190m solar project nears completion in Egypt

A $190m solar project is nearing completion in Egypt as the country aims to generate a fifth of its energy from renewables by 2022.

Three solar plants are being built in the Aswan region by a partnership involving Enara Bahrain, the renewable energy investment platform of Saudi’s private equity company Swicorp, and renewable energy provider ACCIONA Energia. Each company will own a 50% stake in the facilities, which are scheduled to start commercial service within the week.
