Landmark Group turns warehouses into solar plants with SirajPower
SirajPower has signed a new solar rooftop leasing contract with Landmark Group, one of the biggest multinational conglomerates and retailers in the region.
SirajPower will carry out permitting, design, installation, commission and operation of Landmark Group’s new solar system over a period of 20 years.
SirajPower will deliver 2.1 MW of solar energy to Landmark’s Group warehouse facility located in Dubai South, and help the company generate over 3.4 million KWH of clean energy annually resulting in a reduction of the Group’s utility bills as well as their carbon footprint.
“We are encouraged to see more and more UAE businesses recognising the importance and need to adopt renewable sources of energy, and especially solar power as it remains the highest value in the region due to the high solar radiation,” said David Auriau, director at SirajPower.
“SirajPower’s unique solar leasing model offer clients significant savings without the risk of investments and operations of solar plants,” he added. “Our partnership with Landmark Group represents another key milestone for us as we have been selected as the partner of choice following a very competitive selection process.”
SirajPower is a Dubai-based joint venture devoted to net metering and providing comprehensive turnkey solutions around solar rooftops in the United Arab Emirates.
“The UAE public sector has been working hard on promoting clean energy and we are very proud to partner with SirajPower to find sustainable energy solutions for Landmark,” said Vipen Sethi, group director, Landmark Group.
“The National Agenda UAE Vision 2030 mandates sustainability as a key pillar for all organisations – public and private – to create a blueprint for the use of alternative energy,” he added. “The need for the hour is to look at our future and be responsible corporate citizens. This partnership fulfils the vision to lead implementation of a sustainable initiative through the use of solar energy.”
