Total Solar has recently completed the installation of a solar-powered rooftop at Dubai Lubricants Blending Unit. The project is managed by Total Solar Distributed Generation Middle East
The 500 kilowatt-peak rooftop solar set up at the blending unit covers an area of 2,500m2. The solar power generated by the rooftop will cover approximilty 35% of the energy .
The solar-powered rooftop will offset CO2 emissions by 7,000 tons* over the expected life-span of the installation. An extension of the project is currently under consideration, with an aim to cover approximately 70% of the facility’s energy needs, according to source.
Karine Singh, Managing Director for Total Marketing Middle East said, “Total shares the ambition, together with society, to become carbon neutral by 2050, for all of its activities, from its production to the use of the energy products sold to its customers,”.
This project is part of Total’s solarization project which includes the installation of solar panels at its offices, blending units and around 5,000 of its service stations in more than 50 countries around the world, contributing to Total’s target of 25 GW of renewable generation installed capacity by 2025.
