      MANAMA: Imerys, a leader in mineral-based specialty solutions for industry, is partnering with Yellow Door Energy, a sustainable provider for businesses in the Middle East and Pakistan, to install over 8,500 solar panels at its white fused alumina production plant in Bahrain.

      This alumina plant is operated by Imerys and Bahraini partner Al Zayani Industries.

      Covering an area of 25,000sqm, the solar plant will be connected to Imerys Al Zayani's internal distribution network.

      It will have a capacity of 4,677 kWp and will generate 7,600 megawatt-hours of clean electricity in the first year of operation.

      This will bring significant cost savings and reduce carbon emissions, in particular the carbon footprint of the white fused alumina produced in Bahrain, contributing to Bahrain's Net Zero by 2060 Initiative.

      Imerys aims to extract and transform minerals responsibly and sustainably.

      The group has committed to reducing carbon emissions by 36pc by 2030.

      "This new project in Bahrain is a perfect example of how we act locally to make a difference globally. We are looking forward to the completion of this solar plant with our partner Yellow Door Energy," commented Imerys refractory, abrasives and construction senior vice-president Philippe Bourgh.

      Hamid Al Zayani, founder and partner of Al Zayani Investments, said: "This momentous solar project with Yellow Door Energy advances our mission and accelerates our journey towards a cleaner, more sustainable world."

      Rory McCarthy, chief commercial officer of Yellow Door Energy, said: "As our company continues to grow in Bahrain, we look forward to helping businesses switch to clean energy, reduce their electricity costs and contribute to the kingdom's Net Zero by 2060 Initiative."

      Sunil Sharma, general manager of Midal Solar, said: "As the appointed solar contractor for this prestigious project, we are honoured to support Imerys Al Zayani and Yellow Door Energy. We aim to begin construction in the second half of 2022, and the solar plant is expected to be operational by 2023."

      As the solar developer, Yellow Door Energy is responsible for financing, designing, building, commissioning, operating, and maintaining the solar plant for the duration of the agreement.
