September 26 (Renewables Now) - Energy solutions provider Pavilion Group will install solar panels at the oilfield services facility of Singapore-based oilfield engineering company MTQ in Bahrain targeting around 19.9 GWh of clean energy generation.
The solar systems will be set up on the roofs and carports at MTQ's facility in the kingdom, Pavilion said on Sunday.
The electricity produced by more than 1,200 solar panels will be supplied to the plant under a power purchase agreement (PPA) between the two companies.
The project will help MTQ reduce its carbon emissions by 14,083 metric tonnes which is equivalent to taking more than 3,000 cars off the roads.
“Reducing our carbon footprint is important to MTQ. This collaboration with Pavilion Energy represents our third facility to have installed solar panels following two earlier in Singapore. We continue to look to reduce our carbon footprint through exploring renewable sources of energy,” said MTQ's chief executive Kuah Boon Wee.
Bahrain-based Pavilion Energy specialises in generating clean power from wind and solar energy as well as through waste-to-energy solutions.
