Close to a year ago, the world’s largest solar photovoltaic project which is located in the single-site was commissioned in Sweihan, Abu Dhabi. The Noor Abu Dhabi project, which is not state-financed is the work of a consortium that includes Abu Dhabi Power Corporation, Japan’s Marubeni Corp, and Chinese solar manufacturer Jinko Solar.
The project has 1,177 MW solar capacity and covers an area of 8 kilometers and features 3.2 million solar panels from Jinko Solar. The project has increased the share of renewable energy production as well as it has reduced reliance on the use of natural gas for electricity generation. It has resulted in a carbon footprint reduction of 1 million metric tons per year, which is equivalent to taking 200,000 cars off the road.
It is worth mentioning that this project can meet the electricity demand of 90,000 households.
