DP World and Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, to explore areas of collaboration on clean energy solutions for DP World’s portfolio of ports and freezones in the Middle East and Africa. The two sides will work to address challenges related to the delivery of sustainable, reliable and cost effective power generation, with a particular focus on areas that are remote or off-grid. Masdar will provide specialist project management services, from concept to implementation, including community projects to support DP World’s operations. The first collaborative activity will be to review DP World’s operations at the Port of Berbera in Somaliland, focusing on hybrid solar photovoltaic (PV) – diesel plants, water treatment and other technical advisory services for power generation. The MoU will also look at increasing energy efficiency across the company’s ports and terminals in the region.
