Indian solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm Sterling & Wilson Ltd said on Tuesday it seeks to build 300 MW of photovoltaic (PV) power plants in Egypt.
The company, which opened its office in Cairo recently, has already won two 50-MW solar PV projects in the country and intends to secure a further 200 MW, it said.
The plants will be built for certain consortia consisting of solar project developers and independent power producers (IPPs). The schemes qualify for the country’s feed-in tariff (FiT) programme.
The Indian firm has more than 400 MW of operational solar plants and 498 MW of assets under construction. Its order book includes a further 251 MW. Sterling & Wilson recently won a contract for a 62.5-MWp solar installation in Jordan.
