Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. says it has been selected 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.
Enviromena, an Abu Dhabi-based solar power system integrator, has designed and will install the solar system. Aldar, an Abu Dhabi-based property development, management and investment company, is developing the project.
The 2,500 square-meter building-integrated solar array, which sits on the 60-meter high Shams Tower, will simultaneously provide shade for the parking area underneath and produce 450 MWh of solar electricity annually.
