World : Oman Unveils First Solar Powered Service Station

The installation of the solar system at Shell Mukhaizna Service Station is expected to contribute to the reduction of the site’s carbon footprint by approximately 900 tonnes in an average of 25 years.

Shell Oman has opened the first solar-powered service station in the Sultanate of Oman in Mukhaizna, Al Wusta Governorate.

The Shell Mukhaizna Service Station’s solar system technology, provided by Continental Shelf of Solar Tech, is expected to contribute to the reduction of the site’s carbon footprint by approximately 900 tons in an average of 25 years.

Through a tender, Shell Oman awarded the project to Continental Shelf of Solar Tech, an Omani enterprise, to provide the solar system technology at the Mukhaizna Service Station after successfully completing a Shell Intilaaqah training course on the fundamentals of Solar Photovoltaic Technology.

“The Solar Into Stations project will help support the growth and development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Oman in their energy transition journey, and our partnership with Continental Shelf of Solar Tech is a great example of that,” he added.

The “Solar Into Stations” project comes in line with the company’s commitment towards corporate social responsibility (CSR), and the efforts dedicated to playing a proactive role in the progress of energy transition, while creating in-country value (ICV) through business opportunities for Omani enterprises.
