Nesma Renewable Energy - Leadership...
Nesma Renewable Energy - Leadership in Renewable Energy
Jan 2022

A consortium, including Nesma Renewable Energy (NRE) which is headed by CEO Amaan Lafayette, is in the construction phase of two large renewable energy projects in Saudi Arabia. Both projects are being executed by a joint venture of Masdar, EDF Renewables and Nesma Renewable Energy.

Nearing completion is the Dumat Al Jandal wind farm, the first of its kind in the Kingdom and the largest in the Middle East. This USD $500 million project uses 99 turbines to generate around 400MW of power from the wind. Located in the northern part of the Kingdom, this wind farm has already begun generating electricity and when completed this year, will be able to power 70,000 homes annually, displacing about a million tons of carbon dioxide each year. Under the terms of a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA), the electricity generated will be purchased by the Saudi Power Procurement Company (SPPC), a subsidiary of the Saudi Electricity Company.

The second project is the South Noor solar PV project located 50km southeast of Jeddah. Using the sun to generate electricity, this 300MW solar field will connect to the main electric grid to power homes and businesses. The consortium has signed a PPA with SPPC, which authorizes the group to finance, design, build and operate the plant for 25 years based on an agreed-upon purchase price for the electricity generated.

This Jeddah solar power plant will utilize the latest technology in the photovoltaic (PV) market, combining bifacial PV modules with mounting structures that use single-axis tracking technology to maximize energy generation by following the sun’s position throughout the day. State-of-the-art robots will also be used to clean the modules. The project is expected to be operational by the end of this year.

Renewable energy projects such as these are sustainable, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help the country reduce its oil consumption. Per the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, its National Renewable Energy program has a strategic goal to generate 50% of its energy from natural gas and renewable sources by 2030.
