Solar energy Circuit in Abu Dhabi

Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), the world's largest crystalline silicon photovoltaic module manufacturer, announced its selection by Aldar Properties PJSC to supply over 1,120 solar panels for a 292 kW solar system for The Shams Tower, an iconic building on Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. The Abu Dhabi based solar power system integrator, Enviromena, will design and install the solar system and Aldar,Abu Dhabi's leading property development, management and investment company will develop the project.
The 2500 sq meter building with the integrated solar array on the 60-metre high Shams Tower, will provide shade for the car park underneath and simultaneously produce 450 megawatt hours of clean, solar electricity annually. Power generated will certainly offset electricity needs during motorsports events, and also power the Yas Marina Circuit facility for decades, saving 400 tons of greenhouse gases annually.
While talking about this massive project, Sami Khoreibi, President and CEO of Enviromena said, “Enviromena is delighted to be working with Aldar and Suntech on the Yas Marina Circuit. This unique project will demonstrate how solar can be incorporated into the built environment and serve as a high profile example for sustainable design in Abu Dhabi”. Abu Dhabi was recently picked as the headquarters for the International Renewable Energy Agency, and continues with initiatives to show the rest of the region how clean solar energy can co-exist within population centers.
