The Al-Kharsaah 800 MW solar power project is the first large-scale solar power plant owned by Siraj energy. This project has other shareholders, such as Total and Marubeni. It will be managed and operated by Siraj Energy, a partnership between Qatar Petroleum and Qatar Electricity and Water company.
This 800.15 MW photovoltaic solar power project was contracted to a Chinese company called PowerChina Guizhou Engineering Co., Ltd by the government of Qatar. This project was launched as part of the Qatar 2023 vision projects to provide green solar energy in the 2022 world cup games. The 800 MW photovoltaic solar project is the first large-scale solar power ground project connected to Qatar’s national power grid. One of the world’s biggest photovoltaic projects, using double-sided modules and tracking devices, is used at this solar power plant. It pays more attention to the use of water-cooling technology, which not only saves energy but also reduces costs.
The project installed Luxman solar lights in Qatar. These solar lights are integrated with 25W solar lamps, which can be operated remotely and have three power modes for different brightness levels. The main advantage of this plant is that it is relatively simple and easy to maintain and has a long service life. It applies the latest solar energy technologies, including automated sun tracking and robotic cleaning of solar panels and dual panels, to increase efficiency and reduce the costs of operating the power station.
