Oman Power and Water Procurement Company is set to award solar energy projects worth RO300 million ($777 million) to international investors following approval from the Authority for Public Services Regulation (APSR), said a report.

The Manah 1 and 2 projects, which will jointly produce a total of 1,000MW, is set to come up on a 15 million sq m area within the Governorate of A’Dakhiliyah, reported Times of Oman.

It is expected that around 2.082 million solar panels will be installed in these two stations, which will be the largest solar panel project for the sultanate.

These two stations represent the second projects to be floated by OPWP to contract the purchase of capacity generated by renewable energy, stated the report.

Work on these two stations will kick off in Q3 this year and the entire project is due for commercial operations by mid-2025.
