DUBAI: Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa), welcomed Low Pit Chen, Consul-General of Singapore in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

Nael Islam, Regional Director of the Singapore International Organisation, Dr Yousef Al Akraf, Executive Vice President of Business Support and Human Resources, and Khawla Al Mehairi, Executive Vice President of Strategy and Government Communications at Dewa, attended the meeting. This is one of a series of visits by diplomatic and consular officials to Dewa to explore relations, exchange expertise and promote cooperation in power and water.

Al Tayer welcomed Chen and stressed the distinguished relations between the two parties, which have resulted in fruitful cooperation in power and water. Al Tayer presented Dewa’s innovative and pioneering initiatives and projects. These projects aim to achieve the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, which constitutes a roadmap for Dewa’s ambitious initiatives and development projects, to promote sustainability, create a community of happiness and meet the aspirations of Dubai’s citizens and residents.

Al Tayer highlighted Dewa’s efforts to develop clean-energy projects with research and development to support the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to transform Dubai into a global hub for clean energy and green economy, and eventually provide 75 per cent of Dubai’s total power output from clean energy by 2050. One of Dewa’s key projects is the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which is the largest single-site solar power project in the world. It will produce 5,000MW by 2030 at a total investment of Dhs50 billion.

Al Tayer talked about Dewa’s water projects to increase productivity, improve operational efficiencies and increase the flow of water. Dewa has established smart meters and networks to build a smart water-distribution-management system. This is part of its strategic plan to keep pace with the increasing demand for its services and upgrade it to the highest levels of efficiency, reliability and availability.

During the meeting, Al Tayer received an invitation to participate in Singapore International Water Week 2018 and the Desalination and Water Reuse Business Forum from 8th to 12th July, 2018, in Singapore.

At the end of the visit, the Consul General expressed his admiration for Dewa’s projects, efforts and advancement, especially in the production of clean energy and water desalination. This supports the process of sustainable development locally, regionally, and internationally.
