Phoenix Solar Builds 3.5 MW Solar Power Plant for Saudi Aramco in Riyadh

Sulzemoos, Germany - Oman-based Phoenix Solar L.L.C., a subsidiary of Phoenix Solar AG, is to build a solar park with a peak power of 3.5 megawatts for the Saudi Arabian Oil Company.

Saudi Aramco, the world's largest oil producing company, commissioned Phoenix Solar last year to install a photovoltaic testing field designed to analyse different module technologies at its headquarters in Dhahran.

The solar power plant will be built on land where the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC) is currently under construction - close to Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. KAPSARC itself is the largest energy research centre in the world.
