Project Details

Ref: S-10
Name: 50 MW Photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Benban
Location: Egypt
Customer:  EDF
Business Area: Solar
Date: 2015-2016
Status: Ongoing


The customer is planning to build a 50 MW PV Power plant in Benban, Egypt. The project, supported by international finance, falls under the feed-in tariff program of the government of the country.  Prior to construction, a project of this kind requires a study to identify important data to estimate the potential production of a plant, to design the plant for optimum result and to reduce the uncertainty associated with such projects.
Firnas Shuman has been chosen to conduct a bankable solar resource measurement campaign, including supply, installation, operation, and maintenance of a solar meteo-station.

  • Supply and install a solar mete-station (including tracking unit, rotating shadow-band irradiometer to measure direct, diffuse, and global solar irradiation as well wind speed, direction, ambient temperature, humidity, pressure, temperature of solar modules, and impacts of soiling);
  • O&M;
  • Data collection and monitoring;
  • Resource assessment
