The Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn) signed a usufruct contract with Wadi Solar, an Oman renewable energy company, for the allocation of land within Suhar Industrial City for the installation of a 100 MW capacity solar photovoltaic project.

The project will be established as part of Madayn’s comprehensive strategy to provide a large part of the energy needs of its tenants from a sustainable source of renewable energy in line with the sustainability goals of Madayn 2040 Vision.
