Emerge Announces Energisation of Solar PV Projects in Abu Dhabi

by Madaline Dunn

Emerge, a joint venture between Masdar and EDF Group, has announced the energisation of two solar PV projects in Abu Dhabi on Yas Island at Yas Marina Circuit and Yas Bay Waterfront.

It was shared that the 1-megawatt peak (MWp) solar car park at Ethara’s Yas Marina Circuit will generate approximately 30 per cent of Yas Marina Circuit’s total annual energy demand. 

Emerge has installed more than 1,800 solar modules across the car park of the track. Further, the company will deliver a “comprehensive turnkey solution” for the project, including finance, design, procurement, construction, operations, and maintenance for 25 years.

Meanwhile, the 520kWp Yas Bay Waterfront development for Miral involved the installation of over 900 solar modules.

The solution included finance, design, procurement and construction and Emerge will operate and maintain the solar modules. This is the third collaboration between Miral and Emerge.

Commenting on the solar PV projects, Michel Abi Saab, General Manager, Emerge, said: “The energization of these two solar projects on Yas Island shows the commitment by Miral and Ethara to sustainability and to minimizing their environmental footprint.

“These projects will deliver high-quality and reliable clean energy to Abu Dhabi’s race circuit and to one of its premier entertainment destinations, which attracts millions of visitors from home and abroad. The successful implementation of our projects demonstrates the compelling case for installing renewable energy projects at entertainment sites in the UAE.”
