With regard to providing alternative energy solutions, he confirmed that the organisation has worked for more than two years with all partners to obtain a license to provide alternative energy solutions, indicating that all procedures have been completed to localize the first solar farm in Suhar Industrial City on an area of more than two million square meters, This will help provide a mix of electric energy that contributes to reducing emissions resulting from electric power generation by traditional methods, and providing energy at reasonable prices for existing industries in the City.
The ceremony witnessed the signing of a usufruct agreement between Madayn and the solar energy Company, Solar Wadi, to allocate land for the solar power plant project in Suhar Industrial City, as the first station in Madayn’s industrial cities.
