Phanes Group has partnered with Huawei to deliver the UAE's first medium voltage (MV) rooftop connection solar project. The 25.8MW distributed rooftop project was developed for DP World. 



The development includes 88,000 plus solar panels, Huawei's SUN2000-(8-40)KTL all series Smart String Inverters, 25 independent projects, each with single Points of Connection (POC), across 60 plus rooftops and 6 different roof types including the region's first biggest single-site rooftop (2.6MW). The project also had 12 different building profiles and included simultaneous work on up to 12 projects.



Stefanos Lialios, Head of Project Execution for Oryx Solar Systems Solutions - a Phanes Group company - said that the project provides stable power generation to DP World thanks to the performance of the Huawei smart string inverters, especially their reliability and low failure rate since they were commissioned to the grid. Phanes Group supports the use of the natural cooling smart string inverters in extremely high temperatures and desert conditions, and further optimizes costs through the smart management system.



"We are really proud of this partnership and the project," added Lialios. "It's a pioneering project which will act as a kick-starter for moving the PV solar industry forward in the UAE and we are optimistic on the future of renewables in the Emirates."



The DP World Solar project takes advantage of the high natural irradiance to produce 35,734 MWh electricity annually and displaces more than 21,000 tons of CO2 every year. It is accredited under the UN Component Project Activities for Small-Scale Solar in UAE and contributes to Dubai's Integrated Energy Strategy 2030 as well as the UAE's vision 2021 for a stainable environment.
