Dubai Refreshments Company (DRC), the sole franchisee and distributor of PepsiCo products in Dubai and Northern Emirates, has announced the launch of a new solar power plant at its manufacturing facility in Dubai Investment Park – 2.

The new facility, which will come up over a sprawling 45,000 sq m area, is one of the biggest solar power plants in the UAE. It will boast a capacity of 3.7 megawatts, said the company in its filing to the Dubai Financial Market (DFM).

Once operational, the plant’s annual production is likely to hit 5.6 million kilowatts/hour and will in turn help cut 4 million kg of carbon dioxide emissions per annum, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
