As part of its efforts to construct modern solutions to achieve the sustainable development goals of the Kingdom, Diyar Al Muharraq, one of the largest real estate developers in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has installed a number of solar energy trees in Diyar Al Muharraq, demonstrating the company’s efforts to invest in innovative research projects that preserve the environment. In partnership with third parties, this initiative 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 started installing several solar trees distributed throughout the city, some of which have a capacity of 3 kW while others have a capacity of 2 kW, which are intended to supply power to primary irrigation controllers and actuator valves to secondary asset connections.
The installation of solar trees will contribute to maximizing the city’s sustainable energy, as the installation of these trees will help enhance the automated control of the primary and secondary irrigation systems. The company has 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.
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 units are characterized by a design which is tailored to Bahrain’s climate, low maintenance costs, and no electricity charges, due to the contribution of technology used in protecting the environment by reducing energy consumption.
Commenting on this occasion, Eng. Ahmed Alammadi, CEO of Diyar Al Muharraq: “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. 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.”
Among the initiatives of Diyar Al Muharraq, which played a key role in achieving sustainability in the Kingdom, was the use of LED spotlights in public areas to highlight the city's aesthetics, including: Hadiqat Al Diyar, Al Bareh and Al Qamra projects. Diyar Al Muharraq was at the forefront of initiating the launch of this concept, prior to its official approval in the Kingdom of Bahrain
