The renewable-energy sector of Pakistan has achieved yet another major milestone, as the ‘Wah Nobel Group of Companies’ and ‘REON Energy Solutions’ have now inaugurated a revolutionary 1 MWp Solar Power Project located at the Wah Nobel Chemicals Plant in Wah near Taxila. This exemplary Solar project will ensure an annual cost-saving of Rs 19.929 Million, besides reducing Carbon-dioxide emissions by 919,800 kilograms per year.

The formal inauguration ceremony of this Eco-friendly project was held on 23rd February, 2016, after its successful completion within one year. The project is now officially producing electricity, to power the Wah Nobel Chemicals factory that produces a wide range of industrial chemicals like; Formaldehyde, Urea Formaldehyde, Glue and Resins.

The CEO of Reon Energy Solutions – Inam ur Rahman stated that; “The timely completion of this large-scale solar project demonstrates Wah Nobel’s commitment to adopt innovative green technologies, while it also reflects Reon’s unmatched expertise in procurement and installation of world-leading renewable power technologies. Reon Energy Solutions and Wah Nobel Group have collaborated to work on multiple Solar Power Projects to ensure smoother industrial operations and optimise productivity.”

–Earlier in 2014, Reon Energy Solutions was also entrusted to build a smaller 125 kWp solar power plant, which is already operational on the same site in Wah, with a capacity to generate 186,140 KWh. Yet another 200 kWp Solar Installation was completed by Reon in 2015, at “Wah Medical College”, to generate 324,000 kWh of electricity and minimise reliance on the national grid.

These state-of-the-art solar power projects by Reon are producing electricity at highly competitive rates, after being completed within budgets and well ahead of schedule. These scalable projects are enriched with PV-Solar Grid and Remote Monitoring capabilities, while sound maintenance of the solution is also systematically ensured.

Such sustainable projects can be driven by resourceful partnerships, aiming for an energy-abundant future, to help overcome the challenge of the ever-rising fuel costs. As the government of Pakistan is taking concrete measures to reduce the debilitating energy crisis in the country, the industrial and corporate sectors can also play a vital role in the pursuit to strengthen the underdeveloped energy infrastructure.

As the solar and wind technologies are becoming increasingly viable, the industrial sector can install small and medium scale solutions, on-site, to produce alternative energy and reduce the impact of major challenges like; transmission losses, outdated infrastructure, power theft, and seasonal reductions in the availability of hydro power, that have led to excessive load-shedding and power shut-downs all over the country.

“Reon is the renewable energy division of Dawood Hercules Group, the single largest contributor in the private energy sector of Pakistan, controlling upto 1800 MW of power generation with ventures like; The Hub Power Company Limited, Tenaga Generasi Limited, Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company Limited, Engro Power Gen and Laraib Energy Limited.” Mr Inam ur Rahman further added.
