Over 20 participants from the market, the distribution organizations and the academia (which includes Engineering professors from GUtech) had been enrolled in the course. This course was 1 of 4 various varieties of courses at present becoming provided by Shams Global Solutions (SGS), in partnership with Solar Energy International (SEI).
“Through our course, we are aiming to fulfill the objective of preparing locals to take up important roles in the renewable energy sector. The Shams training programme covers fundamental aspects that enhance the knowledge and capabilities of individuals and professionals,” mentioned Dr Firas al Abduwani, co-founder of Shams Global Solutions.
The PV101: Solar Electric Design and Installation course was created by SEI, a photovoltaic technical instruction organisation with more than 55,000 alumni worldwide, and localised by SGS, a neighborhood Omani organization supplying educational and instruction solutions on sustainability. Dr Abduwani mentioned, “It is a pleasant moment to realise the project and offer the first professional solar training in Oman. The success of the training can be noticed from the motivation of the participants who have showed their interest to join our other training levels in the near future. The class was full and we have got many applications for the upcoming training. It is our honour to be one of the first participants in the capacity building of Oman in Renewable Energy Field.”
“The course gave us a strong introduction into the design and installation of solar photovoltaic power systems, including how to conduct solar site analyses, to understand equipment specifications, to correct cabling and mounting requirements, as well as the inverter selection, the interface protection and safety. We are looking forward to the other three courses SGS is offering in Oman,” mentioned Ali al Humairi, lecturer in the Department of Computer Sciences at GUtech.
In addition, the PV101 course, SGS will offer lab/field-primarily based courses and sophisticated theory courses on grid-tied photovoltaic systems. Just not too long ago, they broke ground and began building on a 9kW outdoors instruction facility at GUtech that is becoming sponsored by BP Oman.
