Symtech Solar Mena appointed as Mena distributor

MUSCAT, March 26, 2017

Symtech Solar Mena, renewable energy company, has been appointed as the exclusive distributor and installer for the Symtech Solar Group in Oman and the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region, said a report.

The company will support and install the complete range of Symtech Solar PV systems from their Ghala Industrial Estate base, added the Times of Oman report.

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.

Geof Moser, co-founder, Symtech Solar, said that the increasing energy costs and the need to protect the environment will assist in the increased passage to a fast uptake of solar energy in the Middle East.

He also said that Oman has more annual hours of sun than practically any other country in the world, a level of solar density that is among the highest in the world and the company’s products are ideally suited to perform in the Middle Eastern climate.

Moser further noted that the company 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,” he said.

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, it said.

The facility will serve as the base camp for Outward Bound Oman’s desert expeditions in the Sharqiyah Sands, where young Omani explorers will reside before venturing into the desert.

Equipped with energy efficient architecture, the facility will save up to RO65,000 ($168,851) over the next 10 years in comparison with conventional buildings, added the report.
