Shams Tower, Yas Marina Circuit

Taking the track green

Project Description

Abu Dhabi’s annual Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Grand Prix race track features an architecturally integrated solar PV power plant. Enviromena completed construction of the Shams Tower Solar Photovoltaic System in 2010, and the system provides approximately 50% of the VIP viewing tower’s energy needs. The 291 kW power plant is installed to the “wings” of the building and provides a shaded parking area beneath.
