Scatec and partners start commissioning of Egypt Green

Renewable energy solutions provider Scatec along with its partners Fertiglobe (the strategic partnership between OCI N.V. and ADNOC), Orascom Construction, and The Sovereign Fund of Egypt, has announced the start of the commissioning of the first phase of the green hydrogen plant in Ain Sokhna, in Egypt’s Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone), during an event at COP27. 

The facility is the first integrated green hydrogen plant in Africa, and when fully developed will consist of 100 MW of electrolyzers, powered by 260 MW of solar and wind. The project marks an important milestone in the development of a green hydrogen ecosystem in Egypt and the broader African region. 

Mazghouny & Co has assisted Scatec with the drafting of the memorandum of understanding. The team, led by founder and managing partner Donia El-Mazghouny (pictured), has also assisted the company with the negotiation of the document with the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy acting on behalf of the counterparties.
