Amana’s Solar division is pleased to announce the contract signing of a 2.3MWp Rooftop Solar PV power plant with DB Schenker.

The installation will be on DB Schenker’s second-phase state of the art warehouse in Dubai South. The 35,000 square-meters temperature-controlled warehouse, with a 3,500 square-meters mezzanine area for value-added services, is the largest investment in the history of DB Schenker Middle East & Africa.

Since 2016, Amana’s solar department has successfully completed and connected several rooftop projects to the grid with the usual high level of quality expected, making it the leading rooftop solar EPC company in the UAE.

With this 2.3MWp installation, the plant targets to offset close to 100% of the building’s consumption requirement and will be the first Solar PV Rooftop Plant of its size whereby the solar system will be commissioned simultaneously with the building completion.

Amana will carry out system design, authority approvals, procurement, construction, and testing & commissioning activities in line with the construction program and be ready to operate once the building is handed over.

The Solar PV system will be composed of 7,000 high-efficiency 72-cell solar modules and other state-of-the-art proprietary components expected to generate 3,675 MWh of energy during its first year of operation and roughly 85,000MWh throughout its lifetime.

Amana is proud to support DB Schenker’s renewable energy plans in this exciting solar project. Besides the environmental benefit of offsetting around 1,800 Tons of carbon dioxide each year, the PV installation will have an estimated annual electricity savings of AED1.635M.

This rooftop solar PV Installation will represent another important success under the “Shams Dubai” initiative, launched by DEWA and will help the Emirate move one step closer to achieving its vision of 25% renewable energy by 2030 and 75% by 2050.
