The Court of HH Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, has been equipped with solar power, the company behind the installation said on Tuesday.

The Gulf International Trading Group said it had completed the installation of photovoltaic panels on the roof of the building in record time and successfully linked the project to Abu Dhabi’s Department of Electricity and Water Authority’s main generator.

“In accordance with the directives of the country’s leadership and the economic visions for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi 2030, we are proud to announce the completion of the first pilot project of its kind for solar power on the roofs of buildings, departments and governmental organisations,” Khalid Mohamed Ibrahim Al Midfa, chairman of the Gulf Group, said.

“The project comes under the umbrella of Masdar and ADEWA,” he added.

Masdar City is home to the largest photovoltaic plant in the MENA region. Since it began operations, the plant has saved an estimated 24,000 tonnes in CO2 emissions.

Masdar Power, the company behind Masdar City, is also currently constructing the 100MW Shams One solar project, one of the largest concentrated solar power projects of its kind in the world and the largest in the Middle East.

Scheduled to be completed in 2012 end, the project will be located approximately 120kms southwest of Abu Dhabi city.
