Imerys Al Zayani in Bahrain has announced its new 4.7-megawatt solar power station, inaugurated by H.E. Shaikh Khalid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, Deputy Prime Minister of Bahrain.

The facility is equipped with 8,600 photovoltaic solar panels, and has the capacity to generate 7,600 GWh of clean energy per year.

The company shared that this will result in slashing carbon emissions by 5,000 tonnes annually, over 15 per cent of the plant’s emissions compared to the 2021 base year.

H.E. Yasser bin Ibrahim Humaidan, Minister of Electricity and Water Affairs, and H.E. Abdullah bin Adel Fakhro, Minister of Industry and Commerce, were in attendance at the inauguration ceremony.

The company highlighted the role of collaboration in realising the project, which was achieved with the site’s partner company, Al Zayani Industries; Yellow Door Energy, the solar developer; and Midal Solar, the appointed contractor on the project.

The company shared that Yellow Door Energy was responsible for financing, designing, building, commissioning, operating and maintaining the solar plant for the duration of the 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

The inauguration coincided with the plant marking ten years of operation.
