SOKOYO Solar Street light Supports
In Oct. 24, 2022 Doha Qatar, the 800MW Al Kharsaah Solar Power Plant in Qatar has been connected to the grid at full capacity, and it was inaugurated by the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani on October 18. SOKOYO, one of the leading solar street light manufacturer, was also part of this project as solar street light supplier.
The 800MWp Al Kharsaah Solar Power Plant is Qatar's first utility-scale solar park. After being commercialized, this giant plant will generate 1.8 billion kWh of clean electricity and reduce the CO2 emission by 900 thousand tons per year.
This giant plant is constructed by PowerChina Guizhou Engineering Co., Ltd and applies SOKOYO’s solar street light solutions.
The solar street light is installed around the whole plant with total 252 sets. 8M Octagonal pole with 90W LED Light Conco fully 12 hours working time during the night. The whole solar street light system is approved by Fichtner, 100 years old engineering company from Europe after we provide professional solutions with Pvsyst calculation.
After almost 1 year installation, all solar street lights are proved to work stably and resiliently even in harsh desert environment with IP66 protection standard. Therefore, the solar street light makes the best use of Qatar’s abundant sunlight resources and converts them into clean and stable electricity to power the LED street light.
Its construction started during the COVID-19 Pandemic period and was challenged by difficult geographical conditions such as high temperatures and heavy dust. However, Power China’s engineers and the service team stayed at the site to provide professional and considerate support. Their hard work combined with SOKOYO’s quality products guaranteed the successful operation of this unprecedented project before the opening of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
"We are very proud to witness the completion and startup of this milestone for Qatar. SOKOYO is honoured to supply this project with its industry-leading solutions. Its delivery demonstrates our capability and advantage of both products and services to support the accomplishment of large projects of this kind. In the future, SOKOYO will continue to provide its state-of-the-art solutions for other renewable energy projects in Qatar and contribute to realizing the Qatar National Vision 2030," said Wayne Qian, Sales Managing Director of SOKOYO’s Gulf Region.
