Huawei and Phanes Group have announced a partnership to deliver a 25.8MW solar project to port operator DP World.
The project will be the largest distributed rooftop scheme in the UAE, and will comprise more than 88,000 solar panels across more than 60 rooftops.
Construction Week reports that the project is a key initiative under Dubai's Shams net-metering scheme and serves as a blueprint for the roll-out of distributed industrial solar PV for the region.
Head of project execution for Oryx Solar Systems Solutions, a Phanes Group company, Stefanos Lialios, said that it will provide stable power generation to DP World due to the reliability and lower failure rate of Huawei's SUN2000-(8-40) KTL all-series smart string inverters.
Lialios added: “We are really proud of this partnership and the project.
"It's a pioneering project which will act as a kick-starter for moving the PV solar industry forward in the UAE and we are optimistic on the future of renewables in the Emirates.”
