German Gulf Enterprises Ltd partners with Totalenergies to install solar photovoltaic (pv) rooftop

Local engineering and trading company, German Gulf Enterprises Ltd. has partnered with TotalEnergies to install solar photovoltaic (PV) rooftop at its facility in Dubai Investments Park, United Arab Emirates.

One of German Gulf Enterprises' main corporate priorities is to grow its sustainability actions to reduce its carbon footprint. The company is committed to promoting the emergence of renewable technologies and has chosen to sign with TotalEnergies to use solar energy at its local facility in Dubai.

TotalEnergies installed a 535 kilowatt-peaks (kWp) solar PV rooftop for German Gulf Enterprises Ltd, covering a surface equivalent to over 10 tennis courts. Constructed from more than 1,400 PV panels, the solar rooftop is expected to produce almost 800 megawatt-hours (MWh) in its first year of operation and can cover almost 100% of the facility's energy needs.

As a result, the company will see a reduction in its carbon emissions by over 300 tonnes of CO2 annually, which is equivalent to approximately 9,000 trees planted per year.

The TotalEnergies team in Dubai is proud to collaborate with German Gulf Enterprises and to accompany the company in its initiative to use solar energy," said Hamady Sy, Managing Director, TotalEnergies Renewables Distributed Generation Middle East and Africa. "TotalEnergies is dedicated to supporting the sustainable growth of many commercial and industrial companies in the region."

"German Gulf Enterprises is delighted to partner with TotalEnergies on this solar energy project at our flagship premises in Dubai Investments Park 2, which clearly demonstrates GGE's commitment to sustainability utilizing the latest technology.  The entire project was successfully managed by TotalEnergies.  We look forward to the demonstrable enduring benefits that this installation will bring to our business and the environment," said Mark Johnson, General Manager, German Gulf Enterprises.
