The solar power producer Scatec Solar has signed an agreement with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), an organization related to the United Nations (UN), to supply a solar and storage project to the Humanitarian Hub in Malakal, South Sudan.
The Hub is managed by the IOM, and occupies nearly 300 workers from 34 organizations involved in humanitarian projects in the nearby Protection of Civilians Site and in Malakal town, as well as in the Upper Nile region. With the solar and storage project in place, the Hub is expected to reduce its diesel fuel usage by up to 80-90%.
“We are excited to have secured our first hybrid solar plant project. This is a key milestone for us as it marks the start of our cooperation with the United Nations. We look forward to providing the sites with clean energy and at the same time contributing to significant costs savings for the UN operations”, says CEO of Scatec Solar, Raymond Carlsen.
In addition, Scatec Solar has signed agreements with another international agency for two hybrid solar plants with a total capacity of 2.25 MW at two other locations in South Sudan.
