The 64.1 MWp project is Egypt's first large-scale photovoltaic power plant and part of a 1.86 GWp solar power complex. Located 650 kilometres south of Cairo, near the village of Benban in the desert, the plant consists of almost 200,000 photovoltaic modules spread over an area of 95.4 hectares. By using a single axis solar tracking system, up to 148,000 MWh of electricity per year are produced, enough for about 20,000 Egyptian households. Over a period of 25 years, in which the state-owned grid operator company is supplied, 1.6 million tons of CO2 will be saved.
The project obtained financing from Bayerische Landesbank (BLB) for 85% of the debt, with the remaining 15% coming from Arab African International Bank (AAIB). The German government has provided an Euler Hermes export credit guarantee (ECG), covering the BLB loan.
The plant with a capacity of 6.23 MWp was commissioned in November 2015 and is the largest one currently in operation in Mindanao. Covering an area of about 8 hectares, the 23,520 installed modules generate over 9.5 GWh per annum – or sufficient electricity to power the monthly requirements of 8,740 households. Lifetime carbon dioxide (CO2) savings by the plant compared to fossil fuel alternatives are calculated at around 180 tonnes.
The project was developed by nv vogt and its joint venture partner ib vogt GmbH and purchased by a South East Asian institutional investor.

Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC)
ib vogt and its local partners formed an incorporated joint venture for the development of solar projects in the United States. The name of the new US joint venture is EDP – ib vogt Solar LLC, based in Providence, Rhode Island. Currently participating in the New England tender process.
ib vogt and its local partners are currently developing several solar PV projects under the Egyptian FiT Program. Construction of the first project started in January 2017, creating over 400 jobs in the region and reaching energisation in approximately nine months. Focusing on project development activities, ib vogt together with Infinity Solar Energy intends to provide high quality EPC services in Egypt.
ib vogt has signed a cooperation agreement with a local developer and established Vogt Solar Panamá S.A. The main idea is to develop several projects autonomously, each with 10MW of capacity. It also plans to cooperate with local investors in the construction and commercialisation of pre-developed projects. With the office in Panama, vogt is creating a regional hub for further project development in Central America.
ib vogt is expanding quickly on an international scale as we develop, finance, build and maintain solar projects around the globe. If you would like to help us build a cleaner, solar-powered future, we invite you to join our team of dedicated solar experts.
