What are the results of the solar plus storage projects, and are there any storage projects that Siraj Power has worked on or has in the pipeline?

SirajPower is at the forefront of the growing market for solar hybrid projects, catering to industries such as construction sites, camps, islands, crushers, and military camps. SirajPower provides a unique range of SOLAR+DIESEL+BATTERY hybrid power solutions suitable for remote operations.

This solution enables off-the-grid consumers from different industries to enjoy cost-effective and reliable 24/7 power, reduce operation costs, and get them started on a more sustainable future. The hybrid solution is a Stand-Alone setup with a Solar PV plant + BESS (Battery energy storage system) + DG (Diesel Generator) At SirajPower, we have commissioned and are currently operating several big solar hybrid projects such as Cleanco, with a system size of 2 MVA solar-diesel-battery, and Majid Al Futtaim, with a total capacity of 450 kVA solar + DG + battery. Our solutions are designed to optimize energy consumption and reduce the reliance on traditional fossil fuels.

Our technology combines the best of both worlds – solar energy and battery storage – to ensure that our clients can access a constant, reliable power source, even during periods of low sunlight. The diesel generators will be utilized to fill the gap between the load and the electricity the PV system provides on a consistent basis. With a focus on delivering quality, our solutions are designed to meet each customer’s specific needs, ensuring that they get the most out of their investment. An energy management system is included to optimize the system as the diesel gen-sets capacity is limited, and the solar energy production depends on sun irradiation.
