Project Description

According to bank documents, the project objectives are to increase Egypt's generation capacity by exploiting its vast renewable energy potential and help the country to meet its power demand and to reduce the dependence on gas and fuel for electricity generation and move to a more balanced and environmentally sustainable energy mix.

The project consists of 11 photovoltaic solar power plants (the Sub-projects), 9 x 50MWac and 2 x 20MWac, all to be located in the Benban Solar Park near Aswan, with an aggregate power generation capacity of 490MWac. The solar power plants will be developed by different Sponsors and all output generated will be sold to the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) under a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AIIB

The AIIB has established the Accountability Mechanism for Project-Affected People (PPM).  The PPM provides “an opportunity for an independent and impartial review of submissions from Project-affected people who believe they have been or are likely to be adversely affected by AIIB’s failure to implement the ESP in situations when their concerns cannot be addressed satisfactorily through Project level GRMs or AIIB Management processes.” Two or more project-affected people can file a complaint.  Under the current AIIB policy, when the bank co-finances a project with another development bank, it may apply the other bank's standards. You can refer to the Project Summary Information document to find out which standards apply.  You can learn more about the PPM and how to file a complaint at: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/how-we-assist-you/index.html.

The complaint submission form can be accessed in Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Bengali, Chinese, English, Tagalog, Hindi, Nepali, Russian, Turkish, or Urdu. The submission form can be found at: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/submission/index.html.
