SirajPower Builds First Solar Canopy At Dubai Industrial Park
SirajPower has installed the first of its kind solar canopy structure in Dubai for Hepworth in DIP. This overarching solar canopy is the third solar initiative installed by SirajPower at Hepworth, in addition to the rooftop and carpark solar systems, which have been operational for 4 years. The solar canopy serves the dual purpose of shading outdoor stored materials from direct sunlight while making use of the area to generate clean energy. This innovative solution is possible today due to the decline in the cost of solar energy, where SirajPower continues to innovate by customizing solar solutions that integrate into available spaces for new and existing clients to provide additional sustainable savings. The 400 kWp solar canopy is a visual reminder of Hepworth’s commitment to a sustainable future and is expected to generate 700 MWh of clean energy.
PVH Signs Solar Tracker Supply Agreement with CEEC for 300 MW Project in Saudi Arabia
PV Hardware (PVH), one of the world leaders in innovative solar tracking solutions, have signed an agreement with CEEC to supply solar trackers for the 300 MW solar photovoltaic independent power project located at Rabigh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia The company is currently in one of its most successful phases in the region, where it has already contracted more than 3 GW and it expects to reach another 2 GW in the coming months.The project will be equipped with the Monoline solar tracker in 2V bifacial configuration, designed and tested by the company in adverse weather conditions.
