Africa Energy has secured funding from Saudi investors to establish solar-powered irrigation projects in remote villages in Egypt, Chairman Ahmed Hamdy tells Al Shorouk. The 10-500 KW solar power stations, which are estimated to cost EGP 200k-10 mn, will sell power to landowners in installments once completed. The projects will be carried out in Qena, Siwa, Farafra, Dakhla, and Kharga. The company is also looking to invest in solar-powered irrigation projects in Ghana and South Sudan, according to Hamdy.
