Largest Solar PV Plant in Egypt Achieves Commercial Operation with Support from Wood

07 Jun 2018

Wood recently supported Egypt’s largest solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant to commercial operation.

The 64.1 MWp Infinity 50 Solar Park, which is located in Benban, Aswan, is part of Benban’s solar development complex. It is expected to produce over 110,000 MWh per year – enough electricity to power almost 69,000 homes. On completion, Benban Solar Park will become one of the world’s largest solar generation facilities.

Wood’s clean energy team supported Bayerische Landesbank and the Arab African International Bank as lenders’ technical advisor, undertaking pre-construction technical due diligence and construction monitoring through to commercial operation.

This latest role builds on Wood’s already significant track record within the clean energy market. As a global leader in the delivery of project, engineering and technical services to energy and industrial markets, the company has worked on a number of significant projects including Shams Ma’an, one of the largest solar PV plants in Jordan.
