Sterling and Wilson Solar commissions 25-MW solar energy project in Oman

Sterling and Wilson Solar Limited (SWSL) has commissioned a 25-MW solar energy project in Oman. ..

The solar project was awarded to SWSL by Royal Dutch Shell. The project is located in Sohar Freezone and will save 25,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually, thus reducing the dependency of natural gas resources and unlocking large scale solar opportunities for the country. SWSL commissioned this project on time with more than 300,000 manhours during the pandemic by following all the necessary safety protocols and measures set by the local authorities. In June 2020, SWSL has commissioned its first 125-MW solar energy project in Oman. The Amin solar project, with an installed capacity of 125 MW, is Oman’s first renewables-based independent power project.
