Desert Technologies Company, a closed joint stock company, launched the solar energy containers "Sahara" in the Neom region in the north of the Kingdom in cooperation with the French company Green Corp Konnection, for the purpose of operating a part in the assembly area during the Saudi Dakar Rally 2021. The company has launched two solar enclosures, the first being 20 feet in length and the second 40 feet, generating 62 kilowatts of power.

They are also easy to install panels that operate 24/7 in complete silence – in comparison with regular diesel generators - with minimum maintenance required. The Sahara solar container, which is 40 feet long, can provide near-instant sustainable energy in remote areas in a few days. Sahara was launched for the first time in the Kingdom, and was previously launched in Africa as an ideal product for generating energy in agglomerations or in small villages that do not have electricity or are outside the coverage of the electricity network.
