The organisation becomes the first contractor in the region to adopt battery energy storage system in construction
Khansaheb has teamed up with AJI Rentals to use Ampd Energy’s ‘Enertainer’ to power two tower cranes on its flagship project, Serenia Living on the Palm Jumeirah. The Enertainer is a plug-and-play solution which electrifies construction power generation, offering a seamless and fully automated energy supply, facilitating the construction industry's shift away from fossil fuels.
By significantly reducing the use of traditional diesel generators, Khansaheb is reducing the comparative carbon footprint by up to 85%, utilising a system that operates at a noise level 30 times quieter, emits minimal diesel fumes, and reduces risks related to diesel handling. With much reduced requirements for maintenance and refuelling, it's an economically intelligent option for operations and offers the added benefit of remote monitoring, providing a comprehensive level of data transparency, invaluable for data-driven decision-making.
Steve Flint, Managing Director of Khansaheb Civil Engineering, commented, “At Khansaheb, we have been implementing our sustainability agenda since 2013 and this has enabled us to drive down fuel consumption, energy consumption, water consumption and reduce waste across our business, year on year. This has in turn reduced our costs and these benefits have been passed on to our customers, delivering a more sustainable construction process in line with the national Sustainability Agenda.”
“We promote innovative solutions that aid us in our sustainability journey. Our commitment to integrating zero emission technology, such as Ampd Energy’s Enertainer into our construction operations will further reduce a significant amount of emissions and minimise our carbon footprint, while helping us provide a more sustainable solution to meeting our customers’ needs. We hope to adopt this technology on all future projects,” added Flint.
Hannes Van Graan, Regional Operation Manager at AJI Rentals said, “We have made a concerted effort to introduce equipment and solutions into our rental fleet, which is enabling the move to a more sustainable construction industry, a reality. Khansaheb has embraced and implemented Ampd Energy’s Enertainer with absolutely no hesitation, and we are excited to support them in their current and future projects.”
On behalf of Ampd Energy, Rafat Award, Country Manager GCC commented, “Partners like Khansaheb and AJI Rentals inspire us with their proactive commitment to innovation and sustainability. We are so glad to see the first Enertainer in the GCC deployed on a Khansaheb site through AJI Rentals. We are proud of the emissions reductions being achieved at the Serenia Living site and how it is supporting Khansaheb’s environmental agenda. We look forward to extending the benefits of this technology to future assignments.”
Earlier this year, Khansaheb was appointed as the main contractor by Palma Development for its luxury beachfront project, Serenia Living, situated on the west crescent of Palm Jumeirah, set to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2025.
