CAIRO, January 17 -- Egypt will invite international tender for a for a 85 megawatts wind farm to produce electricity from Zafarana power station for next March.

Egypt said the first thermal solar station due to be established in Koraymat at a capacity of 150 megawatts. Japan is providing grants for these projects.

Denmark will contribute in the third stage, as well as Spain in the fourth stage of a 80 megawatts station.


As a part of the process announced Thursday, the Bureau of Land Management is amending 52 land-use plans in nine Western states, which Norton said will clear the way for wind farms generating 3,200 megawatts of wind energy

With an area of 568 and 85,000 residents, Phu Quoc's estimated electricity demand in 2005 was at 20,234 MWh, while its diesel-fueled generators produce only 7.5 MW, less than half the island's demand.

Giant 10 megawatt turbines of the future could be situated far from shore, avoiding battles with onshore residents who object to the presence of large wind farms.
