Electricity Ministry to issue tender for 2.2 GW wind farm

The Electricity Ministry intends to issue an international tender to establish wind farms in Egypt with a generation capacity of 2.2 GW, Minister Mohamed Shaker told Al Borsa. Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas had made a bid to install 2.2 GW over five years at a cost of USD 2.2 bn. Vestas was due to begin procedures for the construction of a 250 MW wind farm in December, but after receiving another offer from General Electric, Shaker said his Ministry will not be striking any agreements before first exploring the best available options.
