MUSCAT – Mazoon Electricity Company has won the ‘Environmental Upgrade of the Year’ recognition at the 2020 Asian Power Awards’ in recognition for its successful environmentally friendly electrical transformers.

Considered as the ‘Oscars of the power industry’, Asian Power Awards honours ground-breaking projects and trailblazing initiatives in the power sector in Asia. The awards aimed at recognising the broad spectrum of Asia’s power industry and acknowledging their vital input. Several leading Asian power companies participated in the awards. The jury of the Asian Power Awards encompassed practitioners and experts from related industry.

Understanding that current and future energy challenges require a market efficient, reliable, and environment-friendly technology, Mazoon Electricity uses modern approaches to implement suitable environmental upgrades. As part of this strategy, the company began using environment friendly green oil as an insulating medium in the electricity transformers rather than traditional mineral oil.  Mazoon Electricity was honoured with the Asian Power Awards for its state-of-the-art execution capabilities of this important project.

Salim Said Al Kamyani, Chief Executive Officer, Mazoon Electricity said, “This global recognition of our performance is an endorsement of our sustained business excellence practices. We are honoured and proud to receive this award. It is an acknowledgement of our commitment to provide cutting-edge solutions and services underlined by our dedication to extending continuing value to our customers, communities, and shareholders in a responsible and sustainable way. Using the green oil in the Electricity transformers, for which Mazoon won the award for, will benefit the environment and society in general. We are proud of the honour and delighted to be leading the energy sector’s transition towards the continuous development and improvement of the market. The success of Mazoon Electricity at Asian Power Awards also reiterates the determination to augment the Oman’s global position in the field of sustainable development.”

The green oil transformers project sets a global benchmark and is differentiated by the environmental and socially responsible approach. Mazoon Electricity believes that shift to green oil in transformers is one of the key steps towards greener and more sustainable future transmission and distribution networks. The chance to use a product, which uses biodegradable oil, was appealing to Mazoon Electricity, which is continually looking at more environmentally sustainable options.

Engineer Saleem Nasser Al Mahrooqi, (Acting) Senior Manager – Quality, Health, Safety & Environment, Mazoon Electricity said, “As a company our aim is to define optimised, customised solutions based on modern requirements and evaluation criteria. Our objective is to contribute to the green agenda and set new standards for the future. Mazoon Electricity will continue to be committed to advancing sustainable business practices in its operations.”
