  • Engineering – System Design, Drawings, Factory Acceptance Testing, Site Acceptance Testing
  • Procurement and Delivery
  • Installation
  • Testing, Commissioning and Training
  • 2 year Maintenance

Equipment included:

  • 820kWh of OPzV battery power storage
  • Polycrystalline solar panels and combiners
  • MPPT charge controllers and inverters
  • TUV certified high temperature cables
  • On site monitoring systems including data loggers
  • Ground mounting frames
  • Accessories – module combiners, DC/AC disconnects, lightning protection etc

All systems were designed by Fortune CP engineers in United Kingdom in accordance to IEC standards and KOC’s strict regulations. The on-site testing, commissioning of works and training of local engineers is by Fortune CP’s engineers.

Benefits of the project include access to reliable electricity 24/7 in remote desert locations (where temperatures can rise well above 60 degrees Celcius), and no need to use environment polluting diesel generators.

Fortune CP implements solar projects in the Middle East (Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and many other countries), for top customers such as oil companies, telecom companies, government ministries and more.
