Oman Inaugurates Largest Solar-Powered Desalination System in Sur

Oman has taken a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions and achieving its target of net-zero emissions by 2050. The largest solar photovoltaic (PV) system for desalination was inaugurated in Sur. This 17-megawatt peak (MWp) solar photovoltaic farm will generate clean energy to power the Sharqiyah Desalination Plant in Sur. It will produce over 32,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of green electricity annually, covering the desalination plant’s energy requirements during daylight hours. Developed in collaboration with TotalEnergies, the plant is expected to reduce around 27,200 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. This project is in line with Oman’s National Energy Strategy, which aims to derive 30 percent of electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
