PTL Solar, an expert in solar street lighting solutions, has joined hands with Canada-based Carmanah Technologies, to manufacture solar LED lighting solutions for outdoor applications at a facility in Dubai’s Energy and Environment Park (Enpark).

The manufacturing partnership will allow PTL Solar and Carmanah, a leading solar LED company, to make further inroads into the outdoor lighting market in the Middle East and select countries in Africa, as well as help service major clients in the region, said a senior official.
The alliance, which is a first of its kind in Dubai, will also combine the ingenuity of a UAE-based company with the leading-edge technology of Carmanah solar LED lighting solutions.
It will enable flexibility and responsiveness in meeting market demands while providing high-performing solar LED lighting solutions within a cost framework the market expects. With an increased ability to service the market with durable and reliable solar LED lighting, the partnership will additionally bring significant benefits to the community.
Prabissh Thomas, managing director, PTL Solar, said: 'We offer the best energy solutions customised to meet any power requirement. Individuals as well as corporations and governments, are increasingly realising the importance of conserving energy and utilizing sustainable resources.'
'As our list of clientele continues to expand, we have decided to partner with a world leader in solar LED technology to secure our supply of reliable solar technology,' he noted.
“Solar-powered LED lights that are manufactured at our Enpark facility in Dubai will offer value for money and will provide cost-effective instant lighting solutions using high-quality components. We are confident our partnership with a pioneering company such as Carmanah will bring enormous benefits to the region.”
Carmanah Technologies is the first company to pioneer self-contained solar-powered light and continues to develop best-in-class solar LED lighting for industrial applications worldwide.
Ted Lattimore, CEO, Carmanah, said: 'We are pleased to partner with PTL Solar to create the first ‘Powered by Carmanah’ solar LED lighting solution. As the leading Carmanah distributor, PTL Solar brings a wealth of information and local knowledge to the partnership.'
'In addition to their expertise, PTL also offers a centralized location and an established distribution base which we expect will create an increased presence for Carmanah in the marketplace,' he pointed out.
Ali Bin Towaih, executive director of Enpark, a member of Tecom Investments, and Seed, said the outlook for the renewable energy industry in the region was increasingly positive, and this partnership is another example of how companies can leverage their synergies for their mutual benefit as well as for the community at large.
'Hosting such companies at Enpark is further testament to our success as a free zone in attracting renowned companies in this sector to the region and providing them with the support and infrastructure to help them achieve their objectives.”
PTL Solar has supplied its solar energy outdoor lighting units GRENlite to Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) as well as Tecom Investments’ Dubai Outsource Zone and Dubai Internet City, as part of its campaign to transform the existing system into solar-based lights.
In addition, the company has installed solar car park lights for Nakheel in the Waterfront project, as well as illuminated the first automotive factory in the UAE for heavy vehicles assembled by Scania, the world's third largest maker for trucks and buses.-TradeArabia News Service
