The Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn), Mubadrah and Solar Wadi have signed an agreement to set a 100 MW solar photovoltaic Farm in Suhar Industrial City which will be operational next year.

The initiative is part of the overall strategy of Madayn in providing a significant portion of the energy needs of its tenants from a sustainable renewable energy source, in line with Oman Vision 2040’s sustainability goals, Madayn said.

Madayn and its partners plan to roll out the Madayn Renewable Energy Project initiative across all industrial cities and free zones in the next couple of years, utilising a combination of overall holistic solutions which involves larger centralised solar plants that will cater for needs of all tenants within the industrial city that are connected to the regular distribution networks and direct Private-Wire Solutions for high consumption tenants within the industrial city.
