Recently there was an inauguration of TotalEnergies 17 MWp solar PV farm to power Veolia water desalination plant in Sur, Sharqiyah on 6 November 2023. It will serve over 600,000 inhabitants in the Sharqiyah region and help cut 27,200 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, equivalent to emission generated by 6,000 internal combustion engines.
The desalination plant will be major contributor to water security and Oman National Energy Strategy, which aims to derive 30% of electricity by renewables by 2030. This is one of the objectives of Oman 2040 vision. More renewable projects are expected to come.
TotalEnergies is committed to develop 10 objectives aligned with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of the “SustainbALL” program. TotalEnergies has been a member of the UN Global Impact since 2016 and supports SDGs.
