Millennium Energy Industries (MEI), a leading MENA region solar solutions company, announced its successful completion of two long-life solar energy projects for powering operations in the Middle East's industrial sector.

The first solar solution, implemented in the Jordache textile factory, will supply the manufacturing process with 250,000 liters of 60°C hot water daily throughout both summer and winter - used for bleaching and washing jeans supplied to a number of leading jeans brands.

Annual expected savings - based on actual performance numbers from the first two phases of the project during the past year - are projected to reach $600,000 at current energy prices, with a payback after approximately one year.

"With more than seven years of engineering expertise and experience in implementing advanced solar technologies in large scale industrial projects, these two recent successes further demonstrate how solar energy can be harnessed to cut the increased costs in fuel expenditure associated with industry," stated Hisham Mikhi, Engineer and General Manager of MEI.

"Solar energy is a viable future energy source for the region - and one that can be easily utilized due to the region's abundance of sunshine," he added.
