Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with one of the largest shipyards in the Middle East to share its expertise in solar power.

Drydocks World, a shipyard in Dubai that focuses on large crude carirers, is run by DP World, which is majority owned by Dubai World.

The shipyard will collaborate with DEWA on renewable energy projects and exchange expertise and best practices in asset management and maintenance, as well other programmes and activities of mutual interest.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, said the company is focused on working with government departments and organisations and aimed to share its expertise in solar power within the framework of Shams Dubai initiative, which DEWA launched with the aim of connecting rooftop PV systems to its grid.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, group chairman and CEO of DP World, said: “Drydocks World is a strong proponent of environmental conservation in maritime development. 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, in conjunction with the UAE’s objectives.”
