Male’, Maldives, 20th March 2024 – Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives, proudly announces the operationalization of the Maldives’ largest operational floating solar park. Developed in collaboration with Swimsol, a global leader in offshore marine photovoltaics, the 1,080 kWp solar park stands as the largest operating Solar Sea system in the Maldives.

Ms. Corinna Luebbe, Cluster General Manager of Taj Maldives, expressed her enthusiasm about this milestone, stating, “Elevating its stance on sustainable luxury, Taj Exotica Resort & Spa is now operating with one of the lowest carbon footprints in the Maldives. This initiative, in line with IHCL’s ESG+ framework – Paathya, is a reflection of our commitment towards energy conservation, minimization of ecological impact, and preserving the natural beauty of the Maldives.”

The SolarSea system, coupled with a battery, empowers the resort to function entirely on renewable energy throughout the day. As the largest operating Solar Sea system in the Maldives, it is estimated to save approximately 475,000 liters of diesel annually and reduce the resort’s carbon footprint by 1,200 tons each year.

Martin Putschek, Managing Director of Swimsol, expressed pride in the achievement, stating, “This is a very proud moment for Swimsol. It has been our goal since the establishment of our company to enable island resorts in the Maldives to switch off gen-sets completely throughout the day and save a significant share of their diesel consumption, and Taj Exotica is amongst the first resorts in the Maldives to do so. The cooperation with the resort team has been excellent; we thank each and every one of them for the great support and trust.”

Spread across Emboodhu Finolhu island, Taj Exotica Resort & Spa stands as an environmentally responsible resort in the archipelago. It is one of only two properties in the Maldives to receive an EarthCheck Platinum certification, underscoring its commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship.
