CAIRO - 20 July 2020: A consortium affiliated with the Military Production Ministry has won a bid to establish solar energy stations at government buildings in the New Capital.
The Administrative Capital for Urban Development (ACUD) called the winners – Benha Electronics Co. and Suntech Electronics Co. – earlier Sunday.
The stations should be established on the rooftops of 65 government buildings, plus strategic water reservoirs, with a total capacity of 18 megawatts.
The project is estimated to cost some 140 million pounds.
This project is one way to diversify sources of energy in the New Capital and maximize benefits from renewable energy to about 20 percent, said ACUD spokesman Khaled el Husseini.
The project should be implemented within four to six months, he noted.
