The company clinched a deal to supply 280kW in structures for a PV project in the Western desert in Egypt.
Previously, MECASOLAR had supplied 1MW in structures to a PV project in Jordan and 100kW in single-axis solar trackers to a project in Cairo.
MECASOLAR expects to strengthen its presence in the Middle East, where the renewable energy market is expanding at full speed and the prospects for solar energy are quite good. In Egypt, for instance, as in Saudi Arabia, renewables are expected to cover 20% of the total energy demand by 2020. An 8% share would correspond to solar power, in countries with high solar radiation values.
