The project is located 20 km north-west of the ancient port-city of Ashkelon, and will be built on 60 hectares of semi-desert land. The new solar power facility is expected to be grid-connected by the end of this year, and generate over 85,000 megawatt hours of clean energy annually, enough to offset approximately 50,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere every year.
ET Solar will provideend-to-end services including project management, electrical design, plant layout, purchasing, quality control, construction supervision, and commissioning services. After commissioning, ET Solar will also act as the operations & maintenance service provider with its partners.
Mr. Dennis She, President and CEO of ET Solar, said, "This is the largest solar power-plant we have built in the Middle East to date. It demonstrates our ability to plan and implement every stage of large-scale solar power projects, from EPC to O&M. We are proud to deliver clean, affordable, reliable solar energy to the Israeli market, which today is heavily dependent on hydrocarbons."
"The solar project comes in the wake of last year's achievements, which included completion of a 7.8 MWp solar power plant and a contract for a 40 MWp project. We are pleased to note that, with our local partners, we have become the largest EPC contractor in Israel for utility-scale projects."
