ABOUT BENBAN SOLAR PARK
The Benban Solar Park is a world scale solar photovoltaic power project. The park is located in Upper Egypt, some 40 km north of the city of Aswan, in the Western Desert. 32 Plots of between 20 – 50MW each are being developed and owned by international and Egyptian solar power development companies on a 37km2 plot of land that is owned by Egypt’s New and Renewable Energy Authority. The investment is provided partly by the developer and partly using bank loans, many of which have been provided by international development finance institutions such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the International Finance Organization (IFC), Proparco and others.
