REC has opened a sales office in Dubai, U.A.E., to market its bi-facial solar panel it says is well suited for desert conditions.

‘We expect that the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region will be a key market from 2015, driven by rapidly increasing energy usage and high irradiation levels,’ says REC Senior Vice President Luc Grare.’ The new office in Dubai will be the hub for all activities in the MENA region, where we have already started to establish a new organization and partnerships to enter this promising market.’

REC says its Peak Energy Series solar panels recently received accreditation for passing the blowing sand test according to the IEC 60068 protocol by SGS. The test measures durability in harsh desert environments characterized by blowing sand.
