Red Sea Global (RSG), a multi-project developer of regenerative tourism destinations, has shared it has partnered with Zain KSA and Serge Ferrari Group for Telecom Towers at Ummahat Island.

RSG and Zain KSA have designed and installed telecom towers that are fully blended with the island’s aesthetic elements.

The project, it was shared, had five main objectives: provide an ideal 5G service; enhance the island’s visual scene; reduce emissions through the use of 100 per cent clean energy; preserve biodiversity; and enable tower sharing among all licensed telecom operators in KSA.

The towers are powered by the world’s first net zero energy 5G network, recently launched by RSG and Zain KSA – a world first, with the materials produced by the French Serge Ferrari Group.

In addition to being 100% solar powered, the towers are designed to allow air circulation to reduce cooling costs, and do not require high maintenance.

Completion of the towers coincides with the opening of The St. Regis Red Sea Resort, with Nujuma, A Ritz Carlton Reserve, also located on the island.

“Today, we are developing a future of stunning destinations that put people and planet at the center. As we aspire to be leaders in sustainable development and environmental responsibility around the world, we are well aware that achieving this ambitious goal requires working with partners who share our vision, a common ethical and social commitment, as well as a desire for innovation and uniqueness” said Group Head of Technology at Red Sea Global, Dr. Ahmed Alsohaily.

Eng. Sultan Abdullah Alhadlag, Marketing and Business Development Executive at Zain KSA, said: “Over the past few years, our approach to strategic partnerships has proven its effectiveness in terms of contributing to supporting the development process of our Kingdom in line with our wise leadership’s aspirations and Saudi Vision 2030’s goals. We have always been keen to promote and localize innovation in order to employ all our technical capabilities and capacities in serving our beloved Kingdom. Since sustainability is at the heart of our strategy, we have always worked to implement responsible practices and investments which ensure that all infrastructure, services and digital solutions are environmentally friendly and conserve our natural resources.

“Having achieved with our partner, RSG, the launch of the world’s first zero-carbon 5G network, today we are recording a new joint achievement that will consolidate our efforts to contribute to human well-being, nature conservation and ensuring its sustainability for future generations. With this in mind, these new towers, which are now operational at Ummahat Island, will be the gateway to a new era of national technological progress towards greater human well-being and the permanence and sustainability of nature.”

President of the Serge Ferrari Foundation, Sébastien Baril, added: “The challenges of the ecological transition must lead us to transform our organization. This means changing our business model to focus on solutions, with an innovative materials approach to reduce our impact and contribute to a better world”.
