Enertis has secured a contract as the owner’s engineer appointed by Amin Renewable Energy Company for the 100MW Amin PV solar plant in Oman.
Located approximately 210 km North East of Thumrait, the solar project is sponsored by a Japanese-Omani consortium that has been formed by Marubeni Corporation, Renewable Energy Company and Oman Gas Company.
The Amin PV solar project was awarded the contract from the off-taker Petroleum Development Oman (PDO).

“We believe in the potential of this market and we have the intention to consolidate our presence in the Middle East region showing the capacity of the Enertis team.”
The Amin solar plant has a 23-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for supplying power to PDO’s interior operations.
