AMAALA, a luxury and wellness destination on the northwestern coast of the Red Sea, will feature 29 hotels, 3,900 rooms, luxury villas, apartments, homes, and high-end retail, dining, and leisure facilities.

Spanning 4,155 square kilometers, AMAALA will operate entirely on renewable energy.

The off-grid clean electricity project for AMAALA is led by EDF Group and Masdar for Red Sea Global, with completion targeted by 2027.

Upon completion, it will become the world’s second-largest off-grid energy storage project, providing continuous green electricity to local desalination and wastewater treatment plants.

This project aligns with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 goals of economic diversification and reduced oil dependence through renewable energy.

The project is expected to generate 410 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 500,000 tons.

T Madhava Das, Whole-Time Director & Senior Executive Vice President (Utilities) at Larsen & Toubro, emphasized the importance of this partnership and Sungrow’s advanced energy storage solutions in achieving the project’s sustainability goals.

In addition to supplying solar-plus-storage solutions, Sungrow will construct the world’s largest demonstration platform with a capacity of 10 MW. This platform aims to ensure the power quality and stability of the microgrid using simulation models such as Hil semi-physical simulation, DigSilent, and PSCAD.
