Strukton, a key provider of cross-bor­der so­lu­tions in the field of rail in­fra­struc­ture, ve­hi­cles, and mo­bil­ity sys­tems, won a con­tract to in­stall 4,284 so­lar pan­els on a Riyadh Metro de­pot serv­ing the rail sys­tem’s Lines 4 and 6, in part­ner­ship with Ger­many’s Wag­ner So­lar.

A Dutch com­pany, Strukton has op­er­a­tions in the rail sys­tems, civil in­fra­struc­ture and tech­nique, and build­ings mar­kets. In­ter­na­tion­ally, the com­pany fo­cuses on trans­port sys­tems in densely-pop­u­lated ar­eas, open­ing up port, air­port and min­ing ar­eas, and gen­er­at­ing and dis­tribut­ing (sus­tain­able) en­ergy.

The $3.8mn con­tract, the first for Strukton in Saudi Ara­bia, was awarded by Sam­sung C&T, which is re­spon­si­ble for im­ple­ment­ing the MEP (me­chan­i­cal, elec­tri­cal and plumb­ing) works of Line 4 of the FAST con­sor­tium.

As per the deal, Strukton along with Wag­ner So­lar, a part of the San­derink In­vest­ment Group, will set up the 4,284 so­lar pan­els which are ex­pected to pro­duce a to­tal of 2,452MWH ca­pac­ity power.

The so­lar project comes in line with Vi­sion 2030, the na­tional pro­gramme of Saudi Ara­bia, which is aimed at trans­form­ing and di­ver­si­fy­ing the econ­omy, and re­new­able en­ergy plays a vi­tal role in achiev­ing the goals of the sus­tain­abil­ity agenda.
