HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, chairman of Etihad ESCO, and HE Abdulrahman Al Saleh, chairman of Dry Docks World, signed a service agreement to prepare and evaluate the potential for on-site solar energy generation.

Under the agreement, Etihad ESCO will improve facilities to reduce electricity and water use and study ways to recycle waste water for Drydocks World, the largest shipyard service provider to the shipping, offshore, oil, gas and energy sectors in the Middle East.

Etihad ESCO will also conduct a feasibility study to assess the possibilities for on-site solar energy generation for Drydocks World.

“The agreement supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, to establish Dubai’s position as a global hub for clean energy and energy efficiency. Through this agreement, we aim to support Drydocks’ green efforts by providing sustainable solutions that reduce consumption and support the development and sustainability of eco-friendly facilities,” said Al Tayer.

“Etihad ESCO’s main objective is to create a standalone market for energy efficiency, with a strategic plan to retrofit at least 30,000 existing buildings in the Emirate,” added Al Tayer.

“Through the signing of this agreement with Etihad ESCO, we aim to continue our efforts in energy conservation and reiterate our commitment to the Dubai Plan 2021. Our partnership with Etihad ESCO will significantly improve sustainable operations at the Drydocks facilities, as well as benefit our employees, partners and customers,” said Al Saleh.
