Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) announced that it has connected its warehouses and staff accommodations in the RAK FTZ Technology Park to the Federal Electricity & Water Authority’s (FEWA) power grid.

In addition to ensuring a stable power supply, the new connection is expected to reduce onsite electricity costs for the freezone’s occupants.

"Our clients in the technology park will see a significant reduction in their operating expenses, while enjoying a better quality and consistency of power," said Eyad Ismail, Head of RAK FTZ 's Engineering Department.

He added: "The technology park's new connection to the FEWA grid is in line with RAK FTZ 's mission to provide the best facilities and services to our clients while reducing their costs, allowing them to maximise their profits."

RAK FTZ’s power infrastructure now includes eight substations and a switching station. This allows the technology park to receive power directly from FEWA and can be reconfigured for future expansion projects.

"FEWA has a growing network in the Northern Emirates, with many power plants and a network of power infrastructure. Permanent power will allow the clients to work in shifts and enhance the power capacity of their facilities. This new connection to FEWA will further assist our clients in growing their profitable companies in RAK FTZ,” said Ismail.
