NREA to study Vestas’ bid for 250 MW Ras Ghareb wind plant on Sunday

The New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) will on Sunday study an offer from Denmark’s Vestas for the tender to build a 250 MW wind energy plant in Ras Ghareb, sources told the press. Vestas is the frontrunner for the tender as the other bidder, Siemens Gamesa, has not been told of the date, the sources said. Another wind energy company, Germany’s Senvion, was also bidding for the project but retracted its bid earlier this month. The plant is expected to cost EUR 260 mn and is being built for Lekela Egypt, which will operate it under a build-own-operate framework.
