The IMC will provide technical support in the installation of solar plants at Sharm El-Sheikh airport and nine hotels.

Cairo- Mar 31, 2022

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea, Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad and Minister of Civil Aviation Mohamed Manar have witnessed the signing of two cooperation protocols to offer technical support to solar plants in Sharm el-Sheikh.

The first was signed between the Industrial Modernization Center (IMC), the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy, and the Egyptian Airports Company to provide technical support in the establishment of a solar plant at Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport; and the second to provide technical support in the installation of solar units at nine hotels in the Red Sea resort city.

Alessandro Fracassetti, UNDP resident representative in Egypt, and Ghada Shalaby, deputy minister of tourism, attended the signing ceremony.

“The agreements come within the ministry's drive to localize industries with high added value and technological component, including the manufacture of solar plant components, especially in light of the national shift towards diversifying energy sources and increasing reliance on renewable energy,” Gamea said.

The minister also highlighted the IMC’s key role in the execution of the Egypt-PV small solar cell systems project.

The protocols, she added, coincide with the launch of the Green Sharm El Sheikh (GEF) project, which aims to turn it into a model integrated and ecologically-sustainable tourism city, through the adoption of further low-carbon technologies, proactive waste prevention and management practices.
