LONGi has announced an agreement to provide 1292MW of PV modules to Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for two solar projects under construction in Saudi Arabia. LONGi VP Dennis She and A. Ravindran, Senior Vice President and Head of the Renewables Strategic Business Group at L&T, jointly signed the agreement, involving two Saudi Arabian projects for which L&T is acting as EPC, at an event held in Dubai.
The first, located in Jeddah and part of REPDO round II, has a capacity of 388MW, with the second, located in the industrial city of Sudair, having a total capacity of 1500MW, for which LONGi was awarded a contract for the first 904MW. Both projects are in line with Saudi Vision 2030, which intends to expand renewable energy’s contribution to the Kingdom’s energy mix.
“LONGi looks forward to working with L&T not only to support the Kingdom on its journey towards clean energy by 2030, but also to explore further collaboration in the Middle East and other regions,’ commented VP She.
“LONGi, with its high quality products, has been a long-term solutions provider to L&T and we hugely value our relationship”, added Mr. Ravindran. “LONGi and L&T have also collaborated in making a significant contribution to the Middle East’s renewable potential by enabling more and more regions to benefit from clean energy solutions. We look forward to reaching closer levels of cooperation on further projects across India and the Middle East.”
