Masdar’s 10 megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Siwa was the largest solar power installation in Egypt at the time of its completion in March 2015. The project is the first utility-scale solar power installation in the Arab Republic of Egypt and accounts for 30% of the grid capacity of Siwa City and its adjoining areas.
The Sheikh Zayed Solar Power Plant is a 15-megawatt photovoltaic facility in Nouakchott, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania. It was one of the largest solar power installations in Africa when completed and is the first such utility-scale installation in the country.
In January 2019 a consortium consisting of Masdar and EDF Renewables announced that it had won the tender for the Dumat Al Jandal wind farm in Saudi Arabia. With an installed capacity of 400-megawatt (MW), it will be Saudi Arabia’s first wind farm and the largest in the Middle East.
