The solar panels being installed in the plant were produced by the AOI’s Arab Renewable Energy Company (ARECO), under the supervision of the government’s New and Renewable Energy Authority, Chairman of the AOI Abdel-Moneim El-Tarras said on Thursday.

El-Tarras said the organisation is keen on exchanging expertise with Uganda and training technical workers on maintenance works.
The AOI has an ambitious plan to secure all the needs of local and African markets from electricity based on solar energy, he added. 
The new plant is an expression of Egypt's keenness to boost cooperation with Nile Basin countries, he stated. 
El-Tarras underlined the importance of putting into effect President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi's directives concerning boosting cooperation with brotherly African countries in the industrialisation domain.
The AOI chairman said the organisation mobilises all its manufacturing and technological potential to take part in development projects in Uganda and other African states.
The organisation supports renewable energy projects through the Egyptian Initiative for Nile Basin Development, he said. 
Egypt has been involved in numerous development and infrastructure projects in Uganda and many African countries, including in the water, energy, and health fields.
Earlier this week, Egypt inaugurated the AFri Egypt Medical Centre in Jinja, Uganda, as part of Egypt's efforts to bolster bilateral cooperation in various fields.
Other projects Egypt is implementing in the continent include the construction of the $2.9 billion Julius Nyerere Hydropower Station and Dam project in Tanzania in cooperation between Egypt’s Arab Contractors and El-Sewedy Electric company.
In late August, Egypt’s state-owned Arab Contractors announced that it has won a contract to establish a 150km-long road to the tune of 110 million euros in DR Congo.
