New Delhi [India], Feb 6 (ANI): Jakson Group, an energy and engineering solutions company has announced a strategic partnership with UAE's Al Naboodah Electrics, part of Al Naboodah Group Enterprises (ANGE) to distribute its wide range of solar products including solar modules in the Middle-East market.

The solar business is one of the fastest growing verticals for Jakson and has presence across the value chain - from EPC to IPP, products and manufacturing. Its product portfolio includes solar modules, module mounting structures, solar power packs, solar water ROs, solar generators, solar street lights and solar water pumps amongst others.

With this partnership, Jakson and Al Naboodah Electrics will look to capitalise on UAE government's Energy Plan, which aims to increase clean energy use by 50 percent by the year 2050 with solar based power playing a crucial role.

One of Al Naboodah Electrics' first solar panel projects is the optimisation of ANGE's own assets, which includes the ANGE Corporate Headquarters in Al Awir. Phase one of the rooftop project will see up to 25 percent of energy demands met through solar energy, with additional phases to follow.

"With Al Naboodah Electrics, our solar panels can be customised to support the energy strategies for a wide audience across the public and private sectors. We also have a wide range of renewable energy products and solutions for various applications," said Sundeep Gupta, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, Jakson Group.

"The launch of this business is a strategic move that fulfils our sustainability ambitions while aligning ourselves more closely with the UAE Vision 2021 and the UAE Energy Plan," added Buti Al Naboodah, Deputy CEO, Commercial for ANGE.

Besides UAE, Jakson has overseas operations in Bangladesh, Nepal, Singapore and several countries in Africa. (ANI)
