SEE Holding & EnerTech set to develop Sustainable City in Kuwait

by Madaline Dunn

SEE Holding and EnerTech, a Kuwait-based innovator, investor, and developer of end-to-end sustainable solutions, have revealed plans to develop a sustainable city in Kuwait.

The new development, announced on the sidelines of COP28, they said will transform urban living in Kuwait, with plans to enable residents to “significantly reduce” their environmental impact with innovative clean energy, waste management, and resource conservation solutions.

The envisioned sustainable city will feature an advanced 16MWp solar energy system, which will generate 100 per cent of the city’s energy requirements, as well as an additional 20 per cent surplus, which, it said, will significantly reduce the city’s emissions.

The city’s commitment to self-sustainability extends to food production, it shared, and through investments in local farming capabilities, the city aims to produce 50 per cent of the food required by its community.

It also targets a zero-waste strategy, with plans to implement on-site waste sorting, alongside a biogas plant for processing organic waste to eliminate landfill.

Additionally, the city’s water management strategy includes treating and reusing 100 per cent of its water for irrigation to ensure efficient resource utilisation.

Eng. Faris Saeed, Chairman & CEO of SEE Holding, commented on the partnership: “We are thrilled to grow our network of partners by working with one of the leading companies in the sectors of clean energy, water, technology and sustainability solutions. Our collaboration with EnerTech is driven by the shared goal of reaching a net zero emissions future and is strengthened by our combined experiences.

“Together with EnerTech, we are excited to work towards the creation of a sustainable city that will enhance the quality of life for the people of Kuwait and contribute to the growth of a green circular economy.”

Abdullah Al Mutairi, CEO of EnerTech, said: “At EnerTech, we are designing a sustainable future with bankable clean energy and green infrastructure projects that are transforming quality of life in rural and urban communities around the world. Building win-win partnerships, like this one with SEE Holding, are key to unlocking innovation and accelerating sustainable development progress.”
