Neville D’souza said, “Armacell is committed to a more sustainable operation in Bahrain and beyond. We can reduce our carbon footprint and improve our cost efficiency by utilizing the solar PPA we have with Yellow Door Energy. It is a huge step forward for Armacell.
Khaled Chebaro is Yellow Door Energy’s Country Director in Bahrain and KSA. He said, “Yellow Door Energy has a proud partnership with Armacell Middle East Company. This project is just one of many we have in Bahrain that demonstrate our commitment to the kingdom and company growth. We are looking forward to helping businesses switch to cleaner energy, reduce their electric costs and contribute towards the Kingdom’s initiative of Net Zero by 2060.”
The solar plant is capable of producing a 1-megawatt peak and will produce 1.6 million kilowatts hours (kWh) in its first year of operation.
