Leading photovoltaic inverter and energy storage solutions provider, Sungrow Power Supply Co. Ltd (Sungrow) on Tuesday (May 21) announced that it has entered a strategic partnership with Larsen & Toubro (L&T) to supply 165 MW PV inverters and 160 MW/760 MWh energy storage systems for AMAALA – a luxury tourist destination in Saudi Arabia.

The partners claim the collaboration aligns with Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 and China's Belt and Road Initiative. Upon completion in 2027, the AMAALA off-grid project will stand as the world's second-largest off-grid energy storage delivering uninterrupted green power 24/7 with zero carbon emissions, advancing Saudi Arabia's journey towards carbon neutrality, Sungrow stated. The flagship project is being developed by French utility, EDF Group and Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) for Red Sea Global.

"Sungrow's innovative solar-plus-storage solution will power this landmark project, including the construction of the world's largest 10MW demonstration platform," Sungrow stated in an official release.

"The project is projected to generate an annual capacity of 410 million kilowatt hours, sufficient to slash carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 500,000 tons."

Spread over 4,155 square kilometers along the Red Sea coast, AMAALA will feature 29 hotels, 3,900 rooms, 1,200 luxury villas, apartments, and estate homes, complemented by upscale retail, dining, and leisure facilities, and the destination is set to operate wholly on solely on renewable energy.

"With Sungrow's cutting-edge energy storage solutions and the groundbreaking 10MW demonstration platform, we anticipate delivering exceptional quality and timely execution, ensuring 100% sustainable water usage within the destination," said Madhava Das, Whole-Time Director & Senior Executive Vice President (Utilities) at L&T.

"This partnership represents a significant stride towards net-zero emissions, marking a milestone in reducing fossil fuel dependency for both China and Saudi Arabia."
