Yellow Door Energy to install 311 kWp rooftop solar PV plant at Elcome’s headquarters in Dubai

Rooftop Solar

Yellow Door Energy will manage the construction, operation and maintenance of the rooftop solar PV plant for next 20 years. The solar lease structure eliminates the need for Elcome to make a capital investment and take on operational risk, allowing them to focus on their core business. 

Yellow Door Energy (YDE) has announced that it will begin the installation of a 311 kWp solar PV plant at Elcome’s headquarters located in Dubai Investments Park, Dubai, UAE. Elcome is one of the world’s leading marine technology system integration and services companies and employs a workforce of over 500 people in 11 countries. Yellow Door Energy will manage the construction, operation and maintenance of the rooftop solar PV plant for next 20 years. The solar lease structure eliminates the need for Elcome to make a capital investment and take on operational risk, allowing them to focus on their core business.

The solar PV system will generate approximately 503,050 kWh per year and reduce CO2 emissions by 354 tons annually, which is equivalent to planting 9,162 tree seedlings per year. The EPC contractor for the project will be Enerwhere, a Dubai-based, DEWA-certified solar company specialized in commercial-industrial scale systems. Construction of the project will commence in September 2017 and the plant is expected to be operational by the end of the year.

Jeremy Crane, CEO of Yellow Door Energy, said, “As a technology leader in Dubai for nearly 50 years, it is natural for Elcome to adopt solar power. We are excited to be able to provide them with an installation at zero cost, which offers them long-term savings.”

We design and deliver cutting edge electrical and automation systems for ships of all types, helping our customers improve the efficiency of their fleets. It was time for us to do the same for our headquarters in Dubai. The first step was to partner with Yellow Door Energy to source a significant portion of our power requirement from clean sources, while saving money in the process. We will be making investments in new energy consumption monitoring and management systems in the coming year to further reduce our dependency on the grid,” said Jimmy Grewal, Executive Director of Elcome.
