Egyptian-based company Infinity Solar S.A.E. and Germany-based companies ib vogt GmbH and Solizer GmbH & Co. KG have announced the successful closure of a 64.1 MWp solar power plant project in Benban, Aswan, Egypt by the Infinity 50 consortium of which they are members.

The project was approved by the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company on March 6th, 2017, confirming financial close under the first round of the Egyptian Feed-in Tariff (FiT) programme.

As part of one of the largest utility-scale grid-connected solar power complexes in the world, the project represents a landmark in the development of renewable energy infrastructure in the MENA Region, the partners emphasize.

The Infinity 50 Solar Park will comprise a 64.1 MWp PV array over an area of 98.6 ha with almost 200,000 solar panels mounted horizontal tracking system.

Once operational, the plant is expected to produce over 110,000 MWh of solar power per year, equivalent to the electricity required to power almost 69,000 homes.

The project is part of the Benban solar development complex with a total capacity of up to 1.86 GWp, which will be one of the largest solar generation facilities in the world when completed.

The solar power plant will be constructed and commissioned by ib vogt GmbH as the EPC contractor and O&M services provider.
