  • Saudi Arabia has become home to a 1.2 GW solar module production factory
  • Tabuk Industrial City located fab is owned by Masdar Solar, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bin Omairah Holding
  • Mondragon Assembly has supplied its production equipment for the fab that’s come up for an investment of SAR 700 million

Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Minister of Industry and Mineral Resources Osama bin Abdulaziz Al-Zamil has officially inaugurated a 1.2 GW solar panel factory of Bin Omairah Holding in Saudi Arabia’s industrial city of Tabuk that’s equipped with Mondragon Assembly production equipment.

Having come up on 27,000 sq. mtr. space for SAR 700 million ($187 million), the fab is the largest in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region, and Al-Zamil said its proximity works well for major projects as Neom and Red Sea that plan to get all of their energy requirements fulfilled from renewable energy (see Neom Enters MoU With Saudi Arabian Energy Ministry and 100% Renewable Energy For Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea Project).

Bin Omairah’s wholly owned subsidiary Masdar Solar owns the facility with automated line that’s planned to cater to both the domestic and international markets.

The 1.2 GW fab is to be followed by at least 23 new renewable energy fabs in Saudi Arabia according to a September 2021 announcement by Saudi Authority for Industrial Cities and Technology Zones (Modon), including for solar cells, panels, inverters, and the like (see Saudi Arabia’s PV Production Plans).
