Sterling and Wilson Solar (SWSL), a solar EPC solutions provider, has commissioned  operations of its maiden solar PV project in Oman.

This is a major landmark for SWSL as it becomes the first Indian company to commission a solar PV project in the region.

SWSL had received the order from Amin Renewable Energy Company SAOC. The Amin Solar PV project is supported by the Japanese-Omani consortium designed by Marubeni Corporation, Oman Gas Company SAOC, Bahwan Renewable Energy Company and Nebras Power.

The Amin solar project, with installed capacity of 125 MW (DC), is Oman’s first renewable- based Independent Power Project (IPP). It is also the biggest single-unit solar park in the world to use bifacial modules which generate less heat and can withstand temperature fluctuations of the desert.

Once operational, the plant will produce enough solar energy to save 120,000 tonne of carbon emissions.

The photovoltaic plant, located in the Sultanate of Oman, approximately 210 km northeast of Thumrait, has an installed capacity of 125 MW (DC).

The company deployed 165 numbers of earthmoving machinery at site to excavate 100 km cable trench in a very limited time period.
