Letter from Mahmoud Shaban

Dear friends,

I would like to welcome you to the 2nd issue of our customer magazine Contact. In this issue we’ll be focusing on solar power, one of the pillars of growth for the renewable sector in ABB. In line with Saudi Arabia’s vision for making renewable energy an integral part of the transition into more sustainable methods of power generation; the Saudi Arabian government plans to install 41 GW of solar energy by 2032. It’s worth mentioning that peak power demand in Saudi Arabia will nearly triple in the next 20 years, which means that the dependency on oil needs to be reduced dramatically.

With our wide range of products and solutions, ABB has demonstrated its capability as a reliable system integrator in the solar business and will continue to offer its comprehensive solar portfolio of turnkey solutions, including photovoltaic and concentrated solar power solutions.

When solar electric power becomes an important source of energy in our future, we need to make sure that we make it easier for utilities and consumers to select solar power over other forms of energy, while keeping safety and reliability a priority.

ABB is committed to providing safe, clean, reliable renewable power to meet the growing demand in the region. We hope that you find this issue of Contact an interesting read.

Best Regards

Mahmoud Shaban
