The system is said to be generating energy for a camp of 5,000, working, ironically, for an oil field development project in the desert. It is comprised of 1,536 Q.Cells multicrystalline photovoltaic modules. The electricity will power such things as air conditioning and kitchen installations.
In addition to supplying the modules, Q.Cells worked on procurement and engineering, while CCC carried out construction work. It will further operate and maintain the system.
"We are very proud to be part of one of the largest off-grid PV installations in the United Arab Emirates so far," commented Q.Cells Hannes Behacker, senior VP of Asia Pacific/Middle East. Having opened an office in the Middle East this year, Q.Cells says it will expand its presence in the market.
