'We are pleased to partner with GIC and AEPC on the largest utility scale solar IPP in Oman. This milestone further asserts our commitment to provide low cost and sustainable electricity supply solutions to our esteemed clients like the Oman Power & Water Procurement Company (“OPWP”). Successfully achieving financial closure during these challenging times is a testament to the determination of all the stake holders in this project to keep doing the best we can within the constraints we all need to work within'.
