Symtech Solar MENA recently announced that it has been appointed as the exclusive distributor and installer for Symtech Solar Group in Oman and the MENA Region. The company will support and install the complete range of Symtech Solar PV systems from their Ghalah Industrial Estate base.
Founded in 2006, Symtech Solar is an American renewable energy company that designs, produces and delivers the world’s most complete and cost effective photovoltaic solar energy solutions for commercial, residential and off-grid solar energy. “We are delighted to be working with Symtech MENA as our partner in Oman and the Middle East,” explains Co-Founder Geof Moser. We believe that increasing energy costs and the need to protect the environment will assist in the increased lead to a fast uptake of solar energy in the Middle East. Oman has more annual hours of sun than practically any other country in the world, a level of solar density that is amongst the highest in the world and Symtech Solar products are ideally suited to perform in the Middle East climate”.
“Symtech Solar provides commercial on-grid systems for homes, factories, offices, shopping centres, hospitals and schools as well as hybrid battery and off-grid systems to provide solar power where bringing electricity from the grid is too expensive or difficult. Coupled with our solar powered water pumps for agricultural irrigation, solar car ports and solar street lighting that can power highways, we believe that Symtech and Oman Speedy International will provide a one stop solution for clients.”
Said Al Hashimi, Chairman of Symtech Solar MENA said, “Our goal is to provide leading solar energy solutions by offering install-ready PV System packages that can be shipped throughout the world. As pioneers in the manufacturing of PV system kits and solar energy solutions, Symtech Solar are committed to innovation by providing easy to use renewable energy products.”
Al Hashimi added: “Symtech Solar’s added value is created by offering preengineered solar energy systems that reduce the time and money required in the design, purchasing, and logistics of solar energy systems. Symtech’s specialized kit packaging allows our clients to safely and efficiently receive a complete turnkey, ready to install, PV system.”
Ken Paton, CEO of Symtech MENA said, “We are totally committed to partnering with Symtech Solar Group to bring Symtech’s innovative products to Oman and the MENA region. His Majesty the Sultan’s vision is for Oman to produce 10% of its energy requirements from renewable resources by 2020 and we intend to assist in achieving this goal. Our company will take the lead in providing renewable energy solutions to two our clients aimed at reducing their energy costs and protecting the environment of Oman. We understand that shortly the Authority for Electricity Regulation will allow users of renewable energy to transfer surpluses back to the grid. This will make the choice to move to solar energy even more attractive.”
Symtech Solar MENA has been successful in winning its first contract to install solar power to the Outward Bound Desert Centre project located in Wahiba sands. The project is the first standalone solar powered project in Oman and will be completed by June this year. The facility will serve as the base camp for Outward Bound Oman’s desert expeditions in Sharqiyah Sands where young Omani explorers will reside before venturing into the desert. Equipped with energy efficient architecture, the facility will save up to 65,000 OMR over the next ten years in comparison to conventional buildings.
Stuart Caunt, the Director at 23Degrees North said, “Symtech Solar are our solar partner of choice on the Outward Bound Desert Centre project because they are able to provide dependable technical solutions supported by a proven track record at a competitive price. Symtech Solar make it easy for specifiers to find workable solar solutions at a reasonable price and were prepared to engage in discussions to find the right technical solution for our particular project.”
The founders of Symtech Solar envisage that their company will have a global presence in the near future. They are confident that the solar trend will help Symtech Solar grow exponentially once partners and their customers experience the ease and the cost-saving benefits of Symtech Solar PV systems.
