November 21, 2018

undefinedSirajPower has announced a strategic partnership with DP World to deliver rooftop solar solutions generating 15 MW of power at the port operator’s facilities in Dubai.

DP World is already leading from the front when it comes to renewable energy initiatives, with plans to install 88,000 solar photovoltaic (PV) modules across its Dubai facilities.

Laurent Longuet, CEO at SirajPower said: “Our journey to create a sustainable environment and helping the government establishing Dubai as a smart and sustainable city has reached a peak with our new partnership with DP World.

“We witnessed a rapid growth in only three years and our plan now is to expand our offering to other emirates and countries in the GCC, as well as making a foray into the residential market to truly become the regional green champion.”

Mohammed Al Muallem, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said: “The Solar Power Programme is part of DP World’s larger goal to create a better future for our people and community. We recycle over 9,700 tonnes of waste each year, and have managed to reduce CO2 emissions intensity by 24 per cent since 2008.

“We are simultaneously developing the Jebel Ali Free Zone Zero Waste Project, with the ultimate goal to develop the world’s first Zero Carbon Emission supply chain across our portfolio.”

To date, DEWA has connected its grid to 1,177 solar systems placed on the roofs of buildings in Dubai with a total capacity of 54.7 MW.

For its part, SirajPower has already secured 50 MW of solar rooftop projects in Dubai as part of Shams Dubai.

To execute the contract, SirajPower also announced it will open a branch in Jafza that will help supporting the construction installation and operations.

This year, SirajPower has signed a series of solar distribution generation agreements with companies including Al Abbar Aluminium, Landmark Group and Apparel Group.
