First of a kind project to be delivered for a logistics company in Dubai

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - RSA logistics and SirajPower have signed a solar lease agreement to deliver a solar rooftop solution in Dubai. SirajPower will develop a solar system of 1.1 MW on RSA logistics’ rooftop, in Dubai Logistics City, Dubai South. The solar system will cover more than 90% of the energy consumption.

David Auriau, Director at SirajPower highlighted: “This first-of-a-kind project will not only help cut energy expenditure, but will also help promote a green image among the public. Logistics companies have a key role to play in transforming Dubai into the smartest city in the world, and we sincerely thank RSA Logistics for trusting our venture and partnering with us in this initiative of building a green economy.”

The agreement between RSA Logistics and SirajPower is in line with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) Shams Dubai initiative, the new regulatory framework put in place by the Dubai government in order to encourage solar solutions across the Emirate. It is part of the Smart Dubai initiative launched in 2015 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform Dubai into the smartest city in the world. The initiative encourages the development of grid connected rooftop solar capacity, and complements Dubai’s efforts to diversify energy sources and reduce energy demand by 30% by 2030.

Abhishek Ajay Shah, Co-Founder and Managing Director at RSA Logistics commented: “We firmly believe in investing in sustainable initiatives that drive down our carbon footprint and help us act responsibly towards our environment. While a project of this scale is a significant step, we are confident in its long-term benefits for energy saving. We are proud of our partnership with SirajPower and for being the first logistics company to engage in an environmental friendly project and are committed to contributing to the UAE government’s vision of making Dubai a global centre of clean energy, green economy and sustainable development.”

SirajPower, a Dubai-based joint venture devoted to net metering, provides comprehensive turnkey net metering solutions on solar rooftops in Dubai. Whilst the partners have been operating in the field for several years and across multiple geographies, SirajPower started operations on its first project in Dubai in January 2016, and since then has secured a number of large and prestigious projects, all with blue chip names in the region.
