GAC Bahrain starts with the completion of a large solar project

GAC Bahrain has reached a major milestone in its quest to increase its sustainability with the installation of more than 550 solar panels on the roof of its warehouse at Bahrain Investment Wharf in Al Hidd.
The solar array is expected to generate up to 487,000 kWh of clean and renewable energy annually and will reduce GAC Bahrian’s carbon emissions by more than 485 tons and save about 195 tons of standard carbon in the first year – the equivalent of offsetting about 26,298 trees.
Renowned renewable energy solutions provider, Al Mannai Projects, carried out the five-month project in full compliance with all relevant local regulations and safety standards.
“We are fully committed to minimizing our impact on the environment and taking further steps towards sustainability,” said Johan Fulke, Managing Director of GAC Bahrain. “The installation of solar panels is a significant milestone on our sustainability journey and demonstrates our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and adopting renewable energy sources.”
Talal Al Mannai, Chief Executive Officer of Al Mannai Projects added: “We are pleased to announce the installation of high efficiency 550Wp GCL solar PV modules, Al Mannai high quality anodized aluminum solar mounting structure and the Balance of System (BOS ) Equipment for GAC Bahrain. The project was completed on schedule and met all international and Bahrain Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) standards.”
The solar panel project is the latest part of GAC Bahrain’s commitment to environmental responsibility, which aligns with the wider GAC Group’s sustainability strategy, which includes a commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, specifically Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy and Goal 13: Climate protection. By investing in renewable energy, GAC Bahrain aims to reduce its carbon footprint, reduce energy costs and contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
His efforts are also part of a larger trend towards renewable energy adoption in the Kingdom of Bahrain, which aims to generate 5% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025, and the Kingdom’s 2030 economic vision, which aims to reduce carbon emissions to be reduced by 30% through local decarbonization projects and doubling the expansion of regional renewable energy infrastructure.
