Banque Misr has concluded a 285 million EGP Islamic funding agreement of MMP (Diminishing Musharakah) with Upper Egypt Electricity to develop and renovate the Al-Waledeya station in Assiut.
This facility granted by Banque Misr represents the first Islamic funding of MMP directed to the electricity sector.
The funding will be used to maintain and renovate the Al-Waledeya station’s first unit boiler, which will be carried out by the boiler’s original producer Mitsubishi.
The funding will last for 80 months from the first usage or withdrawal and is split into 20 month withdrawal periods, with a 60 month repayment period.

The meeting was attended by Electricity and Energy Minister Ahmed Mostafa Emam, Banque Misr’s Vice Chairman Mohamed Abbas Fayed, Upper Egypt Electricity Chairman Fathi El-Sayed and Electricity Holding Company Vice Chair Mohamed Habib.
