Administrator and dealer of the giant oil deposits on the Arabian Peninsula is the world’s largest oil company, Saudi Aramco. The state-owned company is simultaneously the biggest implementer of PV projects to date.

The 10 megawatt PV project installed on top of the covered parking lot belonging to the North Park Office Complex, Saudi Aramco’s headquarters in Dhahran, is the largest PV project in the kingdom and makes the parking area the largest in the world to be covered with PV modules. The 16 to 18 hectare company parking lot is covered with about 120,000 CIS thinfilm PV modules. In addition to providing approximately 5,000 cars with shelter from the sun, the rooftop PV project, with 18 Sunny Central inverters installed on-site in two air-conditioned buildings, also ensures that the electricity demand of the entire North Park Office Complex is met on a daily basis.
