Currently, reports show that the implementation of this solar plant construction project has been retarded by administrative problems despite the fact that the contract was signed, by ENEO, with a consortium of Scatec Solar, Izuba Energy, and Sphinx Energy.

Meantime, the government is yet to provide the winning consortium with some guarantees they requested before construction works can starts, reports from close sources state.
