Developed in partnership between Veolia and TotalEnergies, the solar plant is a significant step toward decarbonization efforts in the region, as it is expected to reduce approximately 27,200 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, equivalent to the emissions from roughly 6,000 internal combustion engine-powered vehicles over the same period.
Developed by Veolia in partnership with TotalEnergies, the plant is a significant milestone towards decarbonization efforts in the region as it will help cut about 27,200 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, equivalent to the emissions generated by approximately 6,000 internal combustion engine-powered vehicles over the same period.
H.E. Eng. Salim bin Nasser Al-Aufi, the Minister of Energy and Minerals in Oman, has officially inaugurated a 17-megawatt peak (MWp) solar photovoltaic (PV) farm designed to power the Sharqiyah Desalination Plant in Sur, Oman. This solar farm, the largest of its kind for a desalination facility in Oman, boasts an annual capacity of over 32,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of green electricity, which will cover the plant’s entire daytime consumption.
MUSCAT: An Independent Water Project (IWP) at Sur, owned and operated by Sharqiyah Desalination Company SAOG (SDC), is set to become the first facility of its kind in the Sultanate of Oman and the wider Middle East region, to be powered by renewable electricity….
The installation will include approximately 32,000 photovoltaic panels over an area of 130,000 m2. It will produce more than a third of the daily consumption of the plant operated by Véolia and the national company NPW.
“This project is in line with our strategy, which is to develop renewable energies in the Middle East in order to provide our customers with clean, reliable and affordable solutions,” said Vincent Stoquart, Director of Renewables at TotalEnergies. We are committed to helping Veolia decarbonize its operations, leveraging our experience in deploying photovoltaic solutions on complex industrial sites.” This approach is also […]
Minerals Development Oman (MDO), the government’s mining and mineral processing flagship, has signed a contract with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the development of the Qarn Al Alam Hypersaline Associated Produced Water Desalination project.
The initiative will allow MDO, a subsidiary of OIA, to treat the produced water from Qarm Alam to extract salts and milerals.
According to TotalEnergies, the 17-megawatt peak solar project will be the first of its kind to be installed in the region. It produces annually over 30,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of green electricity, or more than a third of the desalination plant’s daily consumption, enabling it to avoid close to 300,000 tons of CO2 emissions.Source)
TotalEnergies and Veolia have signed an agreement to start the construction of the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) systems providing power for a desalination plant in Oman, in the city of Sur.
The power plant will be located on the site of the Sharqiyah Desalination plant, which is a reference in Oman and in the gulf region, supplying drinking water to more than 600,000 inhabitants of the Sharqiyah region.
The Barka V independent water desalination project, located 58km west of Muscat, has a capacity of 100,000 cubic meters per day and will supply drinking water to a population of 800,000 people.
The completion of construction and commissioning of the project is scheduled for June 6, 2024 developed under a BOO (build, own and operate) contract basis during an operation period of 20 years.
GS Inima has kicked off a 2.4 trillion won seawater desalination project in Oman, the water treatment firm’s parent company GS E&C said Tuesday.
GS E&C said it signed contracts to raise a combined $130 million for the Barka 5 (IWP) project, ordered by Oman Power & Water Procurement Company.
The Korean firm plans to borrow 70 percent of the money from the Export-Import Bank of Korea and financial institutions in Oman.
