Lamlas inaugurates trial launching of the solar energy station in the capital, Aden

The Minister of State and Governor of the capital, Aden, Ahmed Hamid Lamlas, on Monday, inaugurated the trial gradual entry of the solar energy station provided by the United Arab Emirates into the capital’s electrical system, as the first strategic project for clean and renewable energy.

Lamlas said during the inauguration, which was attended by the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Electricity, Abdul Hakim Fadel, and the General Director of the Electricity Corporation, Eng. Mujeeb Al-Shaabi, and Director General of the Aden Electricity Corporation, Salem Al-Walidi, “The UAE’s support for our country is not new or strange, and what we see and feel today is an extension of the support for Sheikh Zayed, and his sons who embody and confirm that they are the best successor to the best predecessor.”

Lamlas stressed, “The UAE took the initiative and provided support, and the capital, Aden, and its people deserve that. We have great hope that the project will expand in the future to make the capital, Aden, one of the cities that depends on renewable and clean energy.”

He pointed out that the leadership of the local authority is happy with the solar power station project, which came under the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, President of the UAE, stressing that happiness will not be complete until the capital, Aden, obtains the electricity service it needs to the fullest extent and the suffering of its people is lifted, which they live every summer, and that is a responsibility that falls on the leadership council, the government, and the local authority, each in their role and tasks.

It is noteworthy that the power capacity in the trial operation ranges between 20 to 30 percent of the station’s total capacity of 120 megawatts, as the station will reduce the cost of generating electricity and the need for fuel during daylight hours, and will also contribute to preserving the environment by reducing carbonaceous emissions.
