Civil Twin Renewable Middle East to establish solar plant at SRTI Park

The Sharjah Research, Technology, and Innovation Park (SRTI Park) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Spain-based photovoltaics company Civil Twin Renewable Middle East to develop, test, and deploy the latest solar and renewable technologies at the park, in collaboration with government, private, and academic institutions.

The agreement was inked by the chief executive officer of SRTI Park, Hussain Al Mahmoudi, and Dr. Raúl Gomez Rojo from Civil Twin Renewable Middle East.

The agreement will see the Spanish company establish a pilot plant for photovoltaic energy in successive stages.

The centre will provide independent measurement procedures for the performance, reliability, and affordability of photovoltaic panel models, as well as technical equipment related to those tests.

The plant will also include a field for testing photovoltaic panels, and will conduct research on concentrated photovoltaic performance within the changing climatic conditions in the region.

Commenting on the agreement, Al Mahmoudi, said: “We are pleased to welcome Civil Twin, the leading Spanish company in the field of renewable energy and solar panels, at SRTI Park."

Al Mahmoudi added that the future growth plans of the park – for the next five years – revolve around its growing role as a centre for research and development, and the deployment of commercial applications for clean technology.
