Several independent power producers (IPPs) have reportedly made offers to the Electricity Ministry to construct new wind farms with a combined capacity of 2,150 MW, ministry officials told the local press. The companies are based in China, Germany, the US, and Saudi Arabia, and have proposed projects under engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) + finance or build-own-operate (BOO) frameworks. The offers will be studied by a committee comprising representatives from the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company, the New and Renewable Energy Authority, and the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company.
