L&T awards 760MWh Energy Storage Systems to Sungrow for AMAALA Project

Sungrow, the global leading PV inverter and energy storage system provider, has forged a strategic partnership with Larsen & Toubro to supply 165MW PV inverters and 160MW/760MWh energy storage systems for AMAALA, a prestigious destination in Saudi Arabia.

This collaboration aligns with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 and China’s Belt and Road Initiative, marking a pivotal moment in sustainable energy development.

This flagship project is developed and led by EDF Group, the leading French utility company specialized in low carbon electricity generation with over 91% of its own production free of CO2 emissions, and Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar), for the client Red Sea Global.

Upon completion in 2027, the AMAALA destination will stand as the world’s second largest off-grid energy storage endeavor, delivering uninterrupted green power 24/7 with zero carbon emissions, advancing Saudi Arabia’s journey towards carbon neutrality.

AMAALA represents a cornerstone of Saudi Arabia’s strategic initiatives, with the entire destination set to operate solely on renewable energy. When fully operational, it will generate over 50,000 jobs and contribute more than 11 billion riyals to the Kingdom’s GDP. Spanning 4,155 square kilometers along the Red Sea coast,

AMAALA will feature 29 hotels, 3,900 rooms, 1,200 luxury villas, apartments, and estate homes, complemented by upscale retail, dining, and leisure facilities.

In line with the goals of Saudi Arabia’s “Vision 2030” and the “Belt and Road” initiative, the AMAALA off-grid project will supply continuous green electricity to local desalination and wastewater treatment plants. Sungrow’s innovative solar-plus-storage solution will power this landmark project, including the construction of the world’s largest 10MW demonstration platform. Leveraging advanced simulation models such as Hil semi-physical simulation, DigSilent, and PSCAD, rigorous tests will ensure system reliability in various scenarios, reinforcing power quality and stability.

The project is projected to generate an annual capacity of 410 million kilowatt hours, sufficient to slash carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 500,000 tons.

Mr. T Madhava Das, Whole-Time Director & Senior Executive Vice President (Utilities) at L&T, remarked, “Following our successful collaboration on the Neom New City project, we are excited to partner with Sungrow once again for the AMAALA destination. With Sungrow’s cutting-edge energy storage solutions and the groundbreaking 10MW demonstration platform, we anticipate delivering exceptional quality and timely execution, ensuring 100% sustainable water usage within the destination. This partnership represents a significant stride towards net-zero emissions, marking a milestone in reducing fossil fuel dependency for both China and Saudi Arabia.”
