Huawei, Phanes Group power UAE’s largest distributed solar project
Dubai-headquartered solar provider Phanes Group has partnered with Huawei to deliver port operator DP World with a 25.8MW solar project – the UAE’s largest distributed rooftop project, and the nation’s first medium voltage (MV) rooftop connection solar project – which includes more than 88k solar panels, across more than 60 rooftops, six different roof types.
This is a key project under Dubai's Shams net-metering scheme and serves as a blueprint for the roll-out of distributed industrial solar PV for the region.
Commenting on the partnership, head of project execution for Oryx Solar Systems Solutions, a Phanes Group company, Stefanos Lialios, said that it will provide stable power generation to DP World due to the reliability and lower failure rate of Huawei's SUN2000-(8-40) KTL all-series smart string inverters.
Lialios added: “We are really proud of this partnership and the project. It's a pioneering project which will act as a kick-starter for moving the PV solar industry forward in the UAE and we are optimistic on the future of renewables in the Emirates.”
