UAE water firm Mai Dubai eyes solar power world record by end-2019
Homegrown UAE entity, which currently uses solar power for 75% of its operations, eyes 100% solar adoption
UAE bottled drinking water company Mai Dubai's chief executive officer, Alexander van’t Riet, announced that the firm would convert all its operations — including its entire water treatment operation from bottle-making to dispatching — to solar-powered activities by the end of 2019, adding that Mai Dubai would be the world's first bottled water firm to run entirely on solar power.
Operations such as filling, packing, and storage, as well as head office activities, are covered in the solar power plan.
Mai Dubai was launched in 2014 and currently uses solar power for 75% of its operations.
The company's plan
Van’t Riet and Mai Dubai’s chairman, HE Saeed Al Tayer, thanked the firm's stakeholders for “their role in the company’s success”.
