Supply chain challenges arising from the Russia-Ukraine war present risks to the short-term development of Egypt’s wind power industry, Ayman Saad, CEO of Siemens Gamesa Egypt, tells The Africa Report.

The company, Egypt’s largest supplier of wind turbines, sources equipment from Germany and Spain as well as components from China. Costs of raw materials, including steel and transportation, have risen due to the war in Ukraine.
