Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi visited the Benban Solar Energy Complex in Aswan governorate where he inaugurated several energy projects in Upper Egypt, via video conference.
The opening ceremony was attended by Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy Mohamed Shaker, and senior statesmen.
Al-Sisi inspected the Benban Solar Energy Complex, arguably the largest in the Middle East, which was established in partnership with the private sector and specialized international institutions.
The new projects included converting the West Assiut Energy Station into a combined-cycle system, and establishing the Samalut Regional Control Center.
During the event, Sayed Farouk, Head of the Upper Egypt Electricity District at the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company, delivered a presentation on the Benban Complex.
