Logistics firm RSA Global has announced the official launch and implementation of its first solar rooftop project in Dubai South.

The power plant, developed and installed by Dubai-based joint venture SirajPower, will generate 1.1 MW from RSA Global’s rooftop in Dubai Logistics City.

It will provide an alternative source of electricity for the next 15 years and generate 90% of the energy required for the facility.

The lease agreement between RSA Global and SirajPower signed earlier this year is aligned with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) Shams Dubai initiative.

Abhishek Shah, co-founder and group CEO of RSA Global, said: “Together with SirajPower and all our partners, we believe in the importance of protecting our environment.

“We hope this will open the door for many others to follow in our first steps to contribute to the ambitious target set by the UAE leadership with the launch of the UAE Energy Strategy 2050 to increase clean energy use by 50%.”

SirajPower delivered the project under a fully financed leasing scheme and has set out to finance 50 megawatts of solar rooftop projects over the next five years in Dubai as part of the Shams initiative.

SirajPower is a joint venture between Akuo Energy of France and Corys Environment of Dubai. The company started operations on its first project in Dubai in January 2016, and has since secured a number of large projects in the region.
