OCEC partners with TotalEnergies for solar photovoltaic project

by Madaline Dunn

The Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC) has announced the signing of an agreement with TotalEnergies Renewables Distributed Generation Middle East & Africa (DG MEA), a wholly owned affiliate of TotalEnergies, to develop a rooftop solar photovoltaic project. 

The agreement will see the development of a 4.6 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar rooftop, pegged to produce over 7,000 megawatts-hours (MWh).

According to OCEC, this will provide sufficient energy to significantly cover the OCEC’s annual electricity consumption.

As part of this initiative, supported by OMRAN Group, the OCEC aims to establish itself as a leading green venue in the region, with its events to be powered by solar energy. 

Commenting on the initiative, Eng. Said Al Shanfari said: “We are grateful to be working closely with OMRAN and TotalEnergies Renewables DG MEA on this project, enabling us to achieve our net carbon objectives and become a green venue in the region. Thanks to this new initiative, we will not only host events, but also lead by example in the field of sustainability. This project echoes other initiatives created at the OCEC, via the OCEC Green Team, to reduce our impact on the environment.”

Mohamed Tribak, Middle East and North Africa Zone Director at TotalEnergies Renewables DG MEA, commented: “The collaboration between TotalEnergies REN DG MEA and OCEC demonstrates our company’s capabilities and commitment to support our valued partners in their energy transition. This milestone reinforces our pioneering position in the development of sustainable energy sources for businesses in Oman.”
