With REC's high-quality products, long-term experience and German engineering expertise, REC has the know-how to implement efficient, long-running and reliable solar installations that can withstand the heat and sandstorms that exist in Dubai. We are pleased to contribute our demonstrated expertise on a competitive level backed by sustainable financial stability.”
