UAE solar energy provider SirajPower has signed a 1.3 MWp solar leasing agreement with UAE-based logistics provider, Airlink International UAE for its logistics centre in JAFZA.
SirajPower will act as a long-term partner to finance, operate and maintain a 1.3 MWp solar rooftop plant for Airlink’s Logistics Centre in JAFZA, consisting of over 2,000 solar panels, producing 2.1 GWh of clean energy annually and offsetting nearly 1,500 metric tons of CO2 emissions.
Airlink provides supply chain solutions, combining international air and ocean freight with comprehensive value-added logistics and supply chain services. The deal with SirajPower represents Airlink’s first major green undertaking.
“We are starting the new year on a high note, with a significant partnership between two of the most highly regarded, locally-owned businesses, providing end-to-end services in their respected fields” said Mohammed Abdulghaffar Hussain, Chairman of SirajPower. “SirajPower and Airlink International UAE are both committed to offering a holistic experience to their customers while at the same time making energy consumption more efficient and mitigating climate change impacts. By doing so, we are also contributing to the UAE’s long-term vision for a greener economy to make the country one of the most sustainable in the world. SirajPower will spare no effort to continue encouraging and helping more local businesses in their transition to clean energy.”
Earlier this year, SirajPower reported significant growth as it doubled its solar assets in 2020 to achieve a 100 MWp distributed solar portfolio, making it the most extensive in the region. The company currently operates over 180 solar plants across the UAE.
