Masdar to Build 200-MW Wind Farm in Egypt
Jul 15 13
Masdar announced that the company intends to construct a 200-MW wind park in Egypt as part of its long term investment plant. Back in 2010 Masdar and the Egyptian New And Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) sealed a framework agreement for the 200-MW wind project, planned to be the first joint venture initiative between Egypt and the UAE in the renewable energy sector. The project's value is estimated at AED 2.1 billion (USD 572 million/EUR 437 million). The construction of the wind scheme is seen to help Egypt achieve its goal of getting 20% of its total electricity from renewable energy sources by 2020. The country introduced its renewable energy target in 2008, with wind representing 12%, or 7.2 GW, of the total goal. It also aims to attract AED 36.8 billion in energy investments by 2027.
