Imerys Al Zayani Bahrain, Yellow Door Energy and Midal Solar Partner on Solar PPA

May 17, 2022

Imerys, the world leader in mineral-based specialty solutions for industry, is partnering with Yellow Door Energy, the leading sustainable provider for businesses in the Middle East and Pakistan, to install over 8,500 solar panels at its white fused alumina production plant in Bahrain. This alumina plant is operated by Imerys and Bahraini partner Al Zayani Industries.

Covering an area of 25,000 square meters, the solar plant will be connected to Imerys Al Zayani’s internal distribution network. It will have a capacity of 4,677 kWp and will generate 7,600 megawatt-hours of clean electricity in the first year of operation. This will bring significant cost savings and reduce carbon emissions, in particular the carbon footprint of the white fused alumina produced in Bahrain, contributing to Bahrain’s Net Zero by 2060 Initiative.

For over 45 years, our diversified businesses have contributed to the growth and prosperity of the Kingdom of Bahrain and beyond. Our mission is to invest in innovative and sustainable projects that enhance the local economy. This momentous solar project with Yellow Door Energy advances our mission and accelerates our journey towards a cleaner, more sustainable world
