Recognized as one of the world’s mega
projects, Princess Noura bint AbdulRahman
(PNBAR) University is the first green building
campus in Saudi Arabia to use the world’s
largest district solar water heater.
With an installed capacity of 17MW it provides
hot water for all 40,000 students in the 8km²
campus through its 36,000m
solar collector
area. CCC was responsible for the construction
and acted also as a procurement partner.
We realized the first off-grid solar installation in
the United Arab Emirates.
The rooftop photovoltaic system with an
output of 368 kWp is one of the largest solar
installations in the country, empowering our
camp with more than 5,000 people working for
an oil field development project in the desert
Our first solar initiative was a pilot project at the
Simaisma Camp in Qatar.
Following completion it provided solar heated
water to various units on site, including the
laundry and kitchen as well as photovoltaic
lighting. Following this pilot project, we have
successfully been utilizing solar technology at
various CCC locations & projects.
