Tristar Group has launched its second solar power project in Dubai, featuring a capacity of 464 kilowatt peak (kWp) at its specialized warehouse facility in Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA). This marks the company’s second project since 2021 in collaboration with TotalEnergies.
The new plant, equipped with 1,190 photovoltaic panels, has an annual capacity of 750 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable electricity, covering 90% of the facility’s total power consumption. This setup is expected to offset 318 tons of CO2 emissions, which is comparable to the environmental benefit of planting around 8,200 trees.
Tristar’s first solar power project, a 503-kilowatt peak system at its head office warehouse, generates over 800 MWh of renewable electricity annually, covering more than 95% of the head office’s electricity needs and reducing the company’s annual carbon footprint by approximately 340 tons, equivalent to planting 9,000 trees yearly.
Tristar CEO Eugene Mayne emphasizes the company’s realistic approach to decarbonization and outlines ongoing sustainability plans, including alternative fuels, hybrid vessels, electric vehicles, operational efficiency optimization, and various biodiversity conservation projects.
