DP World, more broadly, is pursuing the widespread adoption of renewable energy and battery energy storage systems (BESS) within its global supply chain.

The plant will be delivered by Emerge as a turnkey solution, including finance, design, procurement, construction, operations, and maintenance of the solar modules for 25 years.

Commenting on the agreement, Michel Abi Saab, Emerge General Manager, said: “Our agreement with Dubai Maritime City to install a rooftop solar plant builds on the success we have enjoyed in developing several projects in the UAE since Emerge was formed as an energy services company offering full turnkey solutions at no upfront cost to the client. We are proud to support this project and to significantly contribute to the Dubai Maritime City’s decarbonization goals.”

Ahmed Al Hammadi, Chief Operating Officer of Dubai Maritime City, DP World, said: “The deployment of clean energy is a central part of our sustainability strategy to become carbon neutral by 2040 and net zero carbon by 2050. We are excited to partner with innovative companies like Emerge and Masdar to accelerate our transition to renewables and look forward to starting work on this solar plant at Dubai Maritime City.”
