SirajPower has agreed a deal to build a 1.8MWp solar power system on a pair of warehouses in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA).
Under a 15 year leasing scheme the firm will install, finance and operate the system for major retailer Apparel.
The solar plant is expected to cover more than 50% of the company’s electricity consumptions, saving 1,750 tons of CO2 during the first year of operation.
SirajPower now has currently 16 plants in Dubai in operation or under construction for a total capacity of around 30 MWp.
The company has already inked three agreements in 2018 and says it expects to bring on-board other prominent UAE business soon.
David Auriau, Director at SirajPower said: “Within a short period of time, we successfully attracted and partnered with major industrial players that adopted our unique solar leasing model to embrace a green footprint in their operations.
“We are delighted to be operating in a country that has invested a lot of effort in taking a global leadership position in renewable energy, a sector that is now a national priority. We share the same vision and are keen to play a key role for a cleaner world.”
