TerniEnergia lands $19.2 million order for solar PV project in Egypt


Italy’s TerniEnergia has acquired a $19.2 million order to construct a 47 MW solar PV plant in Egypt.

The smart energy group will build the industrial-scale plant on behalf of an unnamed Italian utility in the country’s southern Benban region in Aswan, about 900 km from Cairo, on an area covering about 150 hectares.

Part of Italy’s Italeaf Group, the publically-listed TerniEnergia is active in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste and energy management. The company will handle engineering, procurement and construction services for the project, which will use Italian-made 3Sun solar panels mounted on steel structures.
