Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This might be a way to recycle older wind turbines via refurbishment and re-manufacturing. It would probably require that a substantial number of experienced key management and manufacturing personnel be retained on a three to five year basis while local talent was brought up to the required level of expertise. There are a significant number of such turbines still in service in California alone. There appear to be excellent wind resources in and along the shores of the Gulf of Suez and the Gulf of Aqaba. Crazy Horse would likely have the best take on the feasibility of such a scheme. But it might make more sense to install the most cost effective of current production units. Reliable local power could be a great boon to the small towns along these shores. Tourist attractions are currently dependent on diesel generators for power and fuel is intermittent.
