Sterling and Wilson has bagged Turnkey Engineering Procurement and Construction along with Operation & Maintenance contract for the 1,177MWp solar PV plant in Sweihan, Emirates of Abu Dhabi.
The plant, once commissioned, would save around 7 million tonnes of carbon emissions every year. To put it in perspective, 1,177MWp can power around 195,000 homes, thus contributing to the welfare of the current as well as the future generations of the people of the UAE.
"We are fully geared and very excited to be a part of this important milestone in the global solar market", said Bikesh Ogra, President - Renewable Energy, Sterling and Wilson. Laying emphasis on the need to be competitive, he further added, "The strongest contributor to this tariff is the capital expense driven by lower equipment cost and a highly efficient system design. Our unique design offerings and state-of-the-art robotics optimizes the yield and performance of the plant"
