Egypt’s Electricity Minister Mr Mohamed Shaker last week celebrated the start of construction on a new 250-megawatt wind power plant project in the Jabal al-Zeit area. The wind farm is being built in cooperation with Lekela Egypt.

Lekela’s website notes the company’s West Bakr Wind project, which it says will produce 250MW of power. Situated in the Gulf of Suez, 30km north-west of Ras Ghareb, the project will provide power to the grid from 2021. The company says the project should increase Egypt’s wind energy capacity by 18%, a key part of meeting the state’s renewable energy target of 20% by 2022.
