The Egyptian government signed a USD 1.5 billion agreement with ACWA Power for wind energy production in the Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Zeit. The project aims to generate 1.1 GW of power. The project is expected to cut carbon emissions by 2.4 million tons and supply power to millions of homes in Egypt.
Mohammed Al-Khayyat, the head of Egypt's New and Renewable Energy Authority; Mohammed Hamdouche, ACWA's vice president for business development; and Hassan Amin, the director of ACWA Power Egypt, all signed the agreement in Cairo.
