CESI wins Oman renewable consultancy contract
Italian company will advise on the implementation of new energy in rural areas.
Oman-based Rural Areas Electricity Company (RAECo) has awarded CESI Middle East a contract to provide consultancy services in implementing renewable energy projects.
The technical consulting and engineering firm will oversee the development of renewable energy projects in remote areas of Oman, which include Dhofar and Al Wusta Governates.
Matteo Codazzi, CESI's CEO, said:" We are honoured to get the opportunity in playing an important role in paving the way for Oman to create a more sustainable future through the use of renewable energies. Traditional energy resources such as fossil fuels are detrimental to the environment, expensive to retract, and are eventually deemed to run out.
“Cultivating renewable energies is the solution that every country will have to adopt and we are proud to work alongside RAECo in positioning Oman as a renewable energy leader in the region."
CESI was brought on board due to its extensive experience in the study of potential renewable resource generators and performance evaluation. In addition to developing an effective internal strategy, the global consultancy will oversee training sessions aimed at improving the capabilities of RAECo’s staff in working with renewable energy technology.
Eng. Hamed Bin Salim Al Magdheri, CEO RAECo, Commented, "With Oman having one of the highest potential of harnessing solar energy in the world, RAECo's renewable energy projects will further enhance its position as one of the leading companies in the renewable energy sector.
“We are confident that our work with CESI will support the Sultanate of Oman in exploiting renewable energy resources, securing a sustainable future for generations to come."
CESI previously worked in the Sultanate with the Electricity Holding Company SAOC (EHC) to introduce smart meter technology.
It has similar consultancy contracts with Dubai Electricity and Water Authrority (DEWA) covering smart meters and renewable energy.
