Vodafone Egypt To Venture $10.6 Million To Run On Renewables


Vodafone Egypt intends to spend more than EGP 330 million this year on clean and renewable energy resources in order to integrate them into its network, according to sources, 

As per Vodafone Egypt's External Affairs and Legal Director Ayman Essam, the business has signed a contract with the New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) to receive 260 gigawatts (GW) of electricity that could be generated by NREA's renewable energy projects.

By 2025, the telecom provider wants to run fully on renewable energy, Essam continued.

In terms of active users, Vodafone Egypt is the biggest mobile network operator in Egypt. It was introduced in 1998 under the moniker Click GSM. Along with 4G, 3G, ADSL, and broadband Internet services, it covers a variety of voice and data exchange services.

From 1998 to 2003, Vodafone Egypt's main office was located in Maadi, Cairo. Then, in 2003, Vodafone moved its main office to Sixth of October City. Neil Marley, Ian Crawford, and Peter Karney were a few of the primary launch team members. The site of Vodafone at the Smart Village Technology Park serves as the current headquarters for all of the company's core operations.

The second licence for GSM operations in Egypt (as the trade name Click GSM) was issued to MisrFone Group on 30 November 1998, according to a statement from Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications, of which Vodafone owned a 30% part. The decision was made at the time the Egyptian market was being privatised and liberalised. The national incumbent, which introduced the first mobile service in 1996 and is now known as Orange Egypt, received the first licence.
