The proposed project, which aims to provide OWWSC's operation assets with a cheaper and green source of electricity, is sized between 10-15 MWp of capacity. It will generate renewable energy as part of Oman's environmental sustainability towards vision 2040 and contribute to reducing carbon emission roadmap to achieve the Net Zero target by 2050.
Interested developers can submit their proposals until May 4.
The Omani government aims to add around 4 GW of renewables capacity by 2030. In addition to utility-scale project development, the country's new regulation for regulation for rooftop PV, announced in 2018, will support this target.
