Sterling and Wilson commissions 125MW DC photovoltaic project in Oman

Solar engineering, procurement and construction company Sterling and Wilson has commissioned its first 125MW DC solar photovoltaic project in Oman.

Solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company Sterling and Wilson (SWSL) has commissioned its first 125MW DC solar photovoltaic (PV) project in Oman.

The company will build the PV plant in the Sultanate of Oman, approximately 210km northeast of Thumrait. It claims this will be the biggest single-unit solar park using bifacial modules in the world, as well as Oman’s first renewables-based Independent Power Project (IPP).

Sterling and Wilson Solar CEO Bikesh Ogra said: “This is one of the most prestigious projects for Sterling and Wilson Solar. We are delighted to commission the Amin Solar PV Power Plant in Oman and to be working with a competent player such as Amin Renewable Energy Company.

“Being a dominant player in the Middle East, this project marks our entry in the Oman market, which supports the government’s vision for a clean and sustainable future.”

SWSL secured the contract from Amin Renewable Energy Company to develop Amin Solar PV project in the region.

The project was backed by the Japanese-Omani consortium designed by Marubeni Corporation, Oman Gas Company, Bahwan Renewable Energy Company and Nebras Power.

In October 2018, SWSL announced it plans to enter Kazakhstan power sector, targeting EPC for 200MW solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in the country until 2020.
