The agreement is in line with DEWA’s efforts to enhance strategic partnerships with government departments and organisations.

Speaking about the agreement, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA, said, “We are pleased to sign this MoU with Drydocks World to share our expertise in solar power within the framework of Shams Dubai initiative, which DEWA launched to connect photovoltaic systems in buildings with its grid.”

“These joint efforts to use solar power also support the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to provide 75 per cent of Dubai’ total power output from clean energy sources and make Dubai the city with the lowest carbon footprint by 2050,” said Al Tayer.

He further added, “Through this MoU, we will also cooperate in asset management and maintenance. DEWA is the first government utility in the world to receive the Certificate for Asset Management for the integration of high quality asset management in operations related to the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity and water.”

“The certificate recognises DEWA for implementing the highest standards of asset management infrastructure in these operations. We look forward to fruitful and effective cooperation with Drydocks World, to achieve our common goals of serving our beloved nation,” he noted.

Commenting on the joint collaboration, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, group chairman and CEO of DP World, explained, “Aligning our clean energy initiatives at DP World with DEWA will enhance the yard’s commitment to preserving to the marine environment and to consolidating Dubai’s position as a global centre for sustainability.”
