The wind power project is financed by multilateral funding from Germany's kfW Development Bank, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Union via the Neighbourhood Investment Facility (NIF). NREA was advised by Danish consulting firm Carl Bro (Grontmij).

In addition to wind turbine supply, Gamesa will also perform wind turbine assembly, erection and start-up services and provide operation and maintenance services for a period of five years.

Gamesa will begin manufacturing the wind turbines in 2012, with delivery scheduled over the course of 2013.

Gamesa has operated in Egypt since 2003, when it signed its first contract to supply wind turbines to Zafarana wind farm. The company is the leader market, having installed 406 MW of turbine capacity in Egypt.
