India in July 2017 launched a solar project with state-of-the-art technology to electrify a remote village in Egypt.
The Solar Electrification Project is an off-grid system that is ideal for remote locations. The Project has been launched at Agaween village in the Western Desert in Matrouh Governorate, close to the Libyan border.
The project was inaugurated by India’s Ambassador to Egypt Sanjay Bhattacharyya and Major General Alla Fathi Abou Zeid, Governor of Matrouh.
• To successfully launch the Solar Electrification Project, India provided all the solar panels and sub-systems, machinery, equipment and technical support, as well as training for technicians.
• The Egyptian Government provided the location for implementation of the project.
• The project is a demonstration of India’s technical capabilities, especially in renewable energy, and can be replicated at other locations in Egypt.
• The total output of the project is 8.8 kilowatt. It has the ability to electrify the entire Agaween village.
• The Solar Electrification Project at Agaween will also provide electricity to 40 houses, a school, a mosque and a community centre.
