Voltas, a part of leading Indian business conglomerate Tata Group and a leading MEP contractor in the Middle East, said it has successfully commissioned its first solar project in Dubai at the Misterlight Electrical Installation Items Trading warehouse within the National Industries Park.
Misterlight is an ISO-certified cable trading company in the UAE, with more than 30 years of experience in the supply of specialised cables and electrical accessories.
The project was implemented in co-ordination with UAE’s leading distributed solar energy provider SirajPower, which is responsible for the financing, operation and maintenance of the facility under a long-term lease agreement.
The newly installed rooftop solar project will generate clean and green electricity, catering to 85% to 90% of the power required by the facility, while reducing 100 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions per year for Misterlight.
Voltas Vice President and Head of the International Operations Business Group AR Suresh Kumar said: “This is an important milestone for our solar projects’ division in the Middle East and showcases our capability to deliver projects on time despite the challenges faced during the pandemic.”
“Voltas has commissioned 3GW of solar projects in the past with its deep domain knowledge and superior project management and execution capabilities. Our experience and expertise across projects have helped us become a partner of choice for companies looking to go solar,” he added.
SirajPower CEO Laurent Longuet said: “We’re honoured to have been chosen by Misterlight as their solar energy partner. Our partnership with Misterlight and Voltas is a testament to our position as the leading provider of commercial solar solutions in the Middle East.”
“As more and more consumers are becoming aware of climate change and sustainability issues, we are happy to enable businesses to save money and conserve the environment through solar,” he noted.
Misterlight’s Director Rajan Nambiar said: “We believe businesses need to adapt and shift their strategies and practices to address the imminent threat of climate change.”
“We, at Misterlight, are proud to have taken this first step towards a cleaner and more sustainable future – and we urge industries and companies across the UAE to shift to renewable power, which has never been more accessible and economical than the present,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
