13 photovoltaic power stations have been installed on the roofs of the Vienna branch generating around 2.4 million kilowatt hours of electricity every year.
The agreement means that businesses in the Sohar Freezone could be powered by solar photovoltaic (PV) projects instead of gas.
The solar plant will generate 7,100 megawatt hours of clean energy in the 20-year lease duration, equivalent to reducing 3,100 metric tons of carbon emissions or removing 680 vehicles from the road.
SirajPower will deliver a first batch of 15 MW to DP World’s facilities in Dubai located at Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) and National Industries Park, with a 22-year lease agreement to help the company save its energy consumption.
The solar plant is expected to cover more than 50% of the company’s electricity consumption at the warehouses, saving 1,750 tons of CO2 during the first year of operation.
By combining the solutions offered by ALEC Energy and Smart4Power, warehouse operators in the UAE can almost eliminate their carbon footprint in terms of energy use.
Success of many solar projects in the Middle East stems from tariffs which tend to form one of the biggest barriers to entry for new players says Aramex.
Solar plant on roof of Aramex warehouse is largest single-rooftop solar photovoltaic plant in the MENA region with 9,000 solar panels, covered over a total roof area of 38,000 square meters.
