Al-Dosari made this announcement during an inspection visit, which was part of the ongoing coordination between the two ministries. He was accompanied by Eng. Meshari Al- Enazi, Director of the Airport Project at the Ministry of Public Works. The visit focused on various parts of the new airport project (T2), where the installation of solar panels to generate 17 megawatts of electricity was planned. He revealed that the team responsible for the airport project provided a visual presentation that outlined the details of the solar panels.

He also highlighted that the energy g e n e r a t e d from renewable sources will be incorporated into the airport’s power supply and will help reduce the electrical load once the project is operational.
