Beyon has announced the completion of Phase 2 of the Company’s Solar Park at a recent ceremony. Phase 1 and 2 of the Company’s Solar Park will generate 3.6 GWh of clean energy leading to a carbon footprint saving of over 2000 tonnes and a cost saving of BD105,000 annually.

Upon completion of the third phase of the project, which will be located in Hamala, the total clean energy production of Beyon will be approximately 6 GWh per year.
