World’s first date factory to run on solar power

Enviromena has installed a 1 MWp solar system at Al Barakah Dates Factory in Dubai, becoming the world’s first date factory to run on solar power.
Under the 20-year Solar Lease model, Enviromena installed 3,220 solar panels on the 10,000-square meter building, offsetting 100 percent of the factory current electricity needs.
The UAE is one of the leading growers of dates worldwide, and Al Barakah is the largest privately owned date factory in the region. The company processes over 60,000 dates tons of dates per annum into various end-products and exports to over 54 countries around the world.
