Oman’s Majis to establish solar PV at SOHAR

Majis Unicorn Signing CeremonyOman’s water solutions provider Majis Industrial Services has signed an agreement with Unicorn International to supply and install a photovoltaic (PV) solar power plant for Majis’ facilities at SOHAR Port, at an investment value of US$1.3mn

Unicorn will install a 1.30MWp PV plant, expected to be operational by the end of 2020. The project will save 681,000 cu/m of gas per year and will result in a reduction of 1,462 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.

Ahmed Saif Al-Mazrouy, CEO of Majis Industrial Services, said, “Our agreement with Unicorn International is a critical step in reducing the carbon footprint of our water services in SOHAR, while also reducing operating costs.”

“Once installed, the solar facility will generate 6.50MWh energy per day, achieving a carbon footprint reduction equivalent to planting 38,000 trees. Our agreement with Unicorn supports both our environmental commitment and our dedication to Oman’s growing SME segment,” he added.

Ali Abdullah Saif Al Maskery, managing director, Unicorn International, commented, “Photovoltaic solar power generation is increasingly cost-effective and enables businesses to reduce their carbon footprint. We’re pleased to work with Majis to bring our technology to SOHAR and to support the company’s goal for delivering low-impact water services to Oman’s most important industries.”

“Our turnkey PV products have experienced strong growth in adoption across Oman, which is an indicator of the promise that the local renewables sector shows, as well as the appetite that exists for low-carbon energy solutions, he concluded.

The signing ceremony was held at Majis’ head office and was attended by Ahmed Al-Mazrouy, CEO of Majis Industrial Services, and Ali Abdullah Saif Al Maskery, managing director of Unicorn International.
