ECOsys, an ITG company, and a provider of world-class renewable energy & power solutions signed a deal with Las Salinas Resort to install a solar photovoltaic system over part of the resort's complexes.  The system is fully operational since end-January 2017.

 

The project is financed by the "National Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Action" (NEEREA) through BLF bank. NEEREA is a national financing mechanism initiated by the Central Bank of Lebanon and dedicated to the financing of green energy projects in Lebanon.

 

Las Salinas, the most prestigious resort in the North of Lebanon, requested a solar system installation on the rooftop of one of its buildings, on the carport, and on the sport court.

 

The system has a total capacity of 265 kWp and is expected to produce 367.6 megawatt-hours of energy yearly, leading to a total saving of 296 tons of CO2 per year. The estimated payback period is of 6 years.

 

The implementation was done by an ECOsys team of 20 specialists, consisting of engineers and technicians. The main challenge of the project was to esthetically design and integrate the PV system within the existing structure.

 

The overall system components, from word leading brands, include PV panels from TrinaSolar, state-of-the-art solar mounting systems from Schletter, solar PV inverters from SMA Solar Technology, and PV panels monitoring system from Solar-Log.

 

“Las Salinas is proud to embrace the solar energy trend, and to help reduce the pollution in our country. This project is very important to our environment and nature. The beautiful design and accurate execution of ECOsys, along with the financial support of NEEREA & BDL, helped us achieve our environmental contribution. ECOsys’ continuous follow-up and effort to solve the technical and esthetic challenges that we faced, was crucial to finalize the project within the assigned deadline. We hope that other resorts and institutions take into consideration the obligation of investing in solar systems for a better sustainable country. We also hope that our government would provide further needed support in this field, by installing net meters throughout Lebanese regions” , said Mr. Joseph Chikhani, Chairman of Las Salinas Resort.
