YDE Solar PlantYellow Door Energy, a UAE-based sustainable energy provider for businesses, has successfully completed a two megawatt-peak solar plant for Future Pipe Industries (FPI)

Located in Dubai Industrial City, the roof was finished in time to celebrate the Dubai Solar Show and WETEX. The massive solar plant covers the rooftops of four warehouses totalling 18,000sq m and comprises of more than 6,000 solar panels. It is expected to generate 3,200 MW-hours of clean energy in its first year of operation, equivalent to reducing 1,300 tonnes of carbon emissions per year. This will meet 40% of the factory’s energy consumption needs and help FPI significantly reduce electricity costs. 

Dirk Matthys, chief operating officer at FPI, said, “Sustainability is intrinsic to the way we do business at Future Pipe Industries. The solar project with Yellow Door Energy at our DIC facility enables us to reduce our energy costs and lower our carbon footprint, all without any upfront investment. We look forward to having this solar plant generate clean energy for us for many years to come.” 

Saud Abu Al-Shawareb, managing director at Dubai Industrial City, said, “As a leading regional industrial and logistics hub, we prioritise sustainable practices and continue to work closely with our partners from design to completion to ensure their operations are eco-friendly and efficient. The completion of Future Pipe Industries’ solar plant is a milestone for our community and a testament to the UAE’s role as a global platform for innovative companies at the heart of the clean energy movement. We hope this will encourage others to explore renewable power with Dubai’s logistics and manufacturing sector poised to play a prominent role in the region’s economic resilience.”

Jeremy Crane, CEO and co-founder of Yellow Door Energy, said, “We are proud to support Future Pipe Industries’ sustainability endeavour through the development of this solar plant. We hope businesses in Dubai Industrial City will soon recover from the pandemic and consider solar projects to reduce electricity costs.
