Emicool and Total Solar Distributed Generation Middle East inaugurate Solar Plant
Total Solar Distributed Generation Middle and UAE-based district cooling service provider Emirates District Cooling (Emicool) inaugurated on a ground-mounted solar plant in Dubai Investment Park (DIP).
As part of the partnership, a grid connected, photovoltaic system with 792 solar panels, offering peak power of 301kWp with annual energy production of nearly 500 MWh of renewable electricity per year is now operational.
In a statement, Emicool stated that the solar system has been designed to improve savings through better efficiency rates. This initiative also integrates within their environment and societal engagements. Indeed, the installation will help in harnessing solar energy, enabling abundant power and reducing carbon footprint.
The inauguration of the grid connected PV system, installed at the Emicool plant in DIP 2, was attended by Dr. Adib Moubadder, CEO, Emicool, Marin de Montbel, Managing Director, Total Solar Distributed Generation Middle East and Omar Mesmar, General Manager, Dubai Investments Park along with other representatives.
"Total is committed to promote renewable energies and especially innovative solar power solutions through Total Solar Distributed Generation. We are proud to start this collaboration with Emicool to share our solar knowledge and expertise. Emicool will benefit from the newly installed 301 kWp solar plant to partly cover their high electricity consumption needs. Through this ground-mounted solar plant which is already in operation, Total Solar Distributed Generation Middle East is actively contributing to the development of solar energy in the UAE", said Marin de Montbel, Managing Director, Total Solar Distributed Generation Middle East.
