Habshan Project & Camp (UAE)
PV Power Plant (PV/Diesel Hybrid System)
A rooftop photovoltaic system with an output of
368 kilowatt-peak was initially installed at CCC’s
Qusahwira camp. At the time, this was one of the
largest off-grid solar installations in the UAE.
Upon completion of this specific project, the
plant was dismantled and reinstalled at Habshan
project with ground strip foundations in January
2014. The rationale behind this scheme was
to reduce the electrical energy consumed by
the project and camp facilities by utilizing
environmentally friendly technologies. As CCC’s
workforce typically exceeds 100,000 people
(the majority of which live on construction
camps) continued efforts to minimize electric
consumption is a priority both in terms
of environmental responsibility as well as
economical merits. The PV installation generates
on average 450 Megawatt-hours per year, which
is used for air conditioning, lighting and other
daytime power activities. This clean energy
initiative minimizes CCC’s carbon footprint by
offsetting 15,856 tons of CO
2
emissions annually,
by refraining to use diesel generators and
transportation of diesel trucks.
