Beyon chairman, Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, has announced the completion of Phase 2 of the company’s Solar Park at a ceremony which was was held at the Royal Golf Club in Riffa 

Beyon chairman, Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalifa Al Khalifa said, “Beyon’s efforts towards sustainability and clean energy production continues, and we have made great progress since the launch of the first phase of the Solar Park in November 2021. Today we are glad to announce the completion of the second phase of the project.”

“We are also very proud of an unprecedented achievement in the telecommunications and technology sector, as Beyon's Data Centre became the first in Bahrain to rely entirely on clean energy generated from the company's Solar Park, which is located in the Beyon Data Oasis.

“Our journey in the field of environmental sustainability continues in line with our commitment to Bahrain's vision launched by Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, crown prince and prime minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and announced as part of his address during the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference 2021, held in Glasgow Scotland, which reiterates the Kingdom’s commitment to achieve zero carbon neutrality by 2060. Thus, we have set clear plans to start implementing the third phase of this project, which will be located in Hamala. Upon completion of this phase, the total clean energy production of Beyon will be approximately 6 GWh per year.

“On this occasion, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the ministries, concerned authorities and our partners for their invaluable support in helping us implement this project and contributing to its success,” Shaikh Abdulla concluded.
