UAE-based Enviromena Power Systems which is one of the region’s leading clean energy companies, has started construction 509 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in the Middle East and North Africa region.
In Egypt, Enviromena is currently constructing 256 MW of solar PV projects which will help provide power to nearly 370,000 homes while displacing 454,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually. The Benban area, located in the Aswan Governorate, will house a large solar complex totaling 32 power plants generating a combined 1,650 MW of electricity. Each project is expected to go online next year to help Egypt achieve its target of 20 percent renewable energy by 2020.
“The region has seen tremendous growth in the solar industry as a predictable option against volatile commodity prices. And as costs continue to decline coupled with advancements in technology, we expect an upcoming project pipeline of 900 MW for Enviromena in the region,” Sami Khoreibi, chief executive of Enviromena, said.
Enviromena has also broken ground on a 247 MW project in Al Muwaqqar, Jordan. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2020, which will bring electricity to 320,000 homes while displacing 408,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
In addition to this, the company has also started work on UAE’s four rooftop solar projects totaling 5 MW. The systems are all located in Dubai, including AL BARAKAH DATES FACTORY – which will be the world’s first date factory to run on solar power. The company is also installing 1.34 MW system at the GULF CENTER FOR SOAP AND CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES.
Ayham Mkalalati, Director of Business Development at Enviromena, said, “Enviromena has already completed 104 MW of solar projects this year, and by year-end, we will have increased that total to more than 600 MW. To continue growing our portfolio while providing unparalleled service, we’ve also increased our staff by 30 percent since the start of the year.”
Enviromena has been bringing solar power to the region for the past decade with more than 175 MW in operation. Earlier this year, the company inaugurated, along with its joint venture partner TSK of Spain, the 103 MW QUWEIRA SOLAR POWER PLANT – currently the largest solar power park in Jordan.
