Construction of 30 projects totalling 1,365MW and costing more than $2bn will start early next year following the 26 October financial close deadline in the second round of Egypt’s solar feed-in tariff (FiT) programme. All the projects are expected to be commissioned from December 2018 through to June 2019. Together with the three projects that went ahead in the first round, the Benban park will consist of 1,515MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity, connected to the grid via four specially constructed substations.
