Schneider Electric commissioned the very first solar power plant in the Egyptian town of Sharm el Sheikh. The plant has a capacity of 5 MW.
The company worked on the project with Intro Energy and Gila AlTawakol Electric, local companies that act as lead developer, site layout manager and co-developer respectively. Schneider Electric is involved in this project as a technical partner.
Expansion work is already underway to increase the capacity of the Sharm el Sheikh solar park to 40 MW.
The entire installation will operate with a digital management solution from Schneider Electric, including “EcoStruxure”. It is an open, interoperable, ready-to-use and IoT compatible architecture and platform that optimizes carbon footprint by up to 50% and engineering costs and lead times by up to 80%.
