Scatec Solar and partners have grid connected and reached commercial operation for another 65MW of the 400MW Benban project in Egypt. Scatec Solar now has 195 MW in operation in Egypt and expects to have completed the project during second half of 2019.

The Benban solar power plant is Scatec Solar's largest project under construction and the first solar plant with bi-facial solar panels, capturing the sun from both sides of the panels to increase the total clean energy generation.

The estimated annual 870GWh of electricity produced from Scatec Solar's plants in Benban will avoid about 350,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year and provide energy for more than 420,000 households in Egypt.
