Voltas, a part of leading Indian business conglomerate Tata Group and a leading MEP contractor in the Middle East, says 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.

The project was implemented in co-ordination with UAE’s leading distributed solar energy provider SirajPower, which is responsible for 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 per cent of the power required by the facility, while reducing 100 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year for Misterlight.

Voltas Vice President and Head of the International Operations Business Group AR Suresh Kumar says: “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. Our experience and expertise across projects have helped us become a partner of choice for companies looking to go solar.”

SirajPower CEO Laurent Longuet says: “Our partnership with Misterlight and Voltas is a testament to our position as the leading provider of commercial solar solutions in the Middle East.”
