SirajPower, the Dubai-based joint venture providing turnkey solar power solutions in the UAE, announced the signature of a new solar rooftop leasing contract with Landmark Group, one of the biggest multinational conglomerates and retailers in the region.

Under this new partnership, SirajPower will carry out permitting, design, installation, commission and operation of Landmark Group’s new solar panel solution over a period of 20 years.

SirajPower will deliver 2.1MW of solar energy to Landmark’s Group warehouse facility located in Dubai South, and help the company generate over 3.4 million kWh of clean energy annually resulting in a reduction of the group’s utility bills as well as their carbon footprint.

David Auriau, director at SirajPower, said: “We are encouraged to see more and more UAE businesses recognising the importance and need to adopt renewable sources of energy, and especially solar power as it remains highest value in the region due to the high solar radiation. SirajPower’s unique solar leasing model offer clients significant savings without the risk of investments and operations of solar plants.

Our partnership with Landmark Group represents another key milestone for us as we have been selected as the partner of choice following a very competitive selection process. This demonstrates the value of SirajPower’s solar leasing model paving the way for many other industrial undertakings in Dubai.  We remain committed to help the UAE achieve its ambition of the Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to become a global leader in renewable energy and make Dubai the city with the smallest carbon footprint in the world.”

Vipen Sethi, group director, Landmark Group, said: “The UAE public sector has been working hard on promoting clean energy and we are very proud to partner with SirajPower to find sustainable energy solutions for Landmark.  The National Agenda UAE Vision 2030 mandates sustainability as a key pillar for all organisations – public and private – to create a blueprint for the use of alternative energy. The need for the hour is to look at our future and be responsible corporate citizens. This partnership fulfils the vision to lead implementation of a sustainable initiative through the use of solar energy.”

Since last year, SirajPower has continuously showcased its support of the Shams initiative, DEWA’s first smart initiative aiming to connect solar energy and support the diversification of the energy mix, through partnership with key UAE businesses such as RSA Global and Al Abbar Aluminium Energy.
