Integrated city is said to be one of the largest development projects in Bahrain, blending modern life with the Kingdom’s authentic heritage
Developer Diyar Al Muharraq says it has begun the installation of solar energy trees within its integrated city. The solar trees will help maximise the use of renewable energy within the development and is said to demonstrate the developer’s efforts to invest in innovative research projects that preserve the environment.
The installation of the solar trees will help enhance the automated control of the primary and secondary irrigation systems, the developer said. It notes that it carefully selected the designated areas for the placement of solar trees, as part of its efforts to fulfill its energy needs, along with reducing operational and capital costs related to electricity and maintenance bills.
The statement explained that some of the solar trees have a capacity of 3kW, while others have a capacity of 2kW, which are intended to supply power to primary irrigation controllers and actuator valves to secondary asset connections.
“We are proud of all the environmental innovations that we have adopted since the start of our journey, the most recent of which was the installation of solar energy trees, which demonstrated our efforts towards achieving sustainability. This initiative aims to contribute to generating sustainable energy, helping reduce operational costs, and leading to the creation of an environmentally friendly community within Diyar Al Muharraq,” said Diyar Al Muharraq CEO Engineer Ahmed Alammadi.
The developer said it worked with third parties for the initiative, which aims to create a smart city that provides a better lifestyle through the deployment of technological solutions, as well as diversify the economy by adopting smart solutions that promote environmental sustainability.
Diyar Al Muharraq has extended its objective in using sustainable technology in the construction of its park, Hadiqat Al Diyar, where it has cooperated with Gulf Fencing and Specialist Surfacing Est. and KP Smart Solar Energy to install 103 solar lighting units, the statement said.
Alammadi added, “We are also looking forward to more achievements, and following the same approach, to set a new standard in the real estate scene in the Kingdom and reaffirm the importance of adapting technology to achieve environmental sustainability.”
Diyar Al Muharraq says it is also using LED spotlights in public areas to highlight the city’s aesthetics, including: Hadiqat Al Diyar, Al Bareh and the Al Qamra projects. Diyar Al Muharraq was at the forefront of initiating the launch of this concept, prior to its official approval in Bahrain.
