June 14, 2017 - Beirut, Lebanon
ECOsys, an ITG company, and a provider of world-class renewable energy and power solutions, signed a deal with ABC Verdun to install a solar photovoltaic (PV) system over part of the Mall complexes to cover their energy needs. ABC Verdun needed an energy source, along with EDL and diesel generators, to power their facilities.
The project was signed in February 2017, and after three months the system was operational as the inauguration of ABC Verdun mall was approaching.
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 into the fine architecture of ABC Verdun mall.
ECOsys designed a solar system of 51.84 kWp and is expected to produce 72.6 MWh of energy yearly, leading to a total saving of 57.9 tons of CO2 per year. The system will not only reduce ABC’s electricity bills, but also raise ecological awareness. It is important to add that the estimated payback period is less than 5 years.
ABC Verdun is proud to embrace the solar energy trend, and 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 helped achieve an environmental contribution.
ABC continues to incentivize other businesses to adopt smart ecofriendly solutions, adding to the fact that it is not the first time ABC cooperated with ECOsys for solar PV systems.
ECOsys’ continuous follow-up and effort to solve the technical and esthetic challenges that they faced, was crucial to finalize the project within the assigned deadline.
