Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) received a high-level delegation from energy-management company Veolia.
The delegation, which was received by HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and chief executive officer of DEWA, included Patrice Fonlladosa, chairman of Veolia Middle East and Africa, Xavier Joseph, CEO of Veolia Middle East, Anas Derraz, director of Strategic Partnerships in the Middle East, and Alex Musallam, DB director for the Middle East.
The visit aimed to enhance cooperation between the two parties in energy and water, as well as exchange best practices, experiences, and global practices.
Al Tayer welcomed the delegation and highlighted the importance of fruitful cooperation between the two parties.
Al Tayer stated that DEWA works tirelessly to build a robust infrastructure to enhance its total production capacity, which is currently 10,200MW of electricity and 470 million imperial gallons of desalinated water per day (MIGD), to meet Dubai’s current and future water demand and complement the emirate’s urban expansion and socio-economic growth.
Last month, Veolia stated that it was looking at injecting approximately $200m investments into the MENA region for power and water projects.
