IRSC for Production and Sale of Electricity was planning to construct 993.3 KW photovoltaic (PV) power plant over the buildings’ rooftops of MCV – Manufacturing Commercial Vehicles plant in Obour City, El Qaliubeya, Egypt, in order to use the produced power in the plant’s operation activities (saving 40% of electricity).
IRSC commissioned Environics to prepare a Scoped B EIA study for the project covering its different phases: construction, operation and decommissioning.
The scope of work included: reviewing relevant documents, conducting a site reconnaissance visit to have a clearer vision of the site-specific characteristics.
The study encompassed: description of the project, its components and different phases, analysis of alternatives, and description of the baseline environment including: the physical as well the socio-economic environments. The latest data on the various climatic elements were obtained from the nearest monitoring stations via Meteoblue site for 30-year averages, and also from Weatherbase site.
Moreover, the study described the relevant legal framework, assessed the potential environmental impacts and provided the proper mitigation measures, as well as developed the environmental management & monitoring plan.
