Large solar-powered digital data centre to locate in Dubai

(ANSAmed) – NAPLES, 12 MAG – Moro Hub signed an agreement
with Huawei for the largest solar-powered digital data centre in
the Middle East and Africa area, said Emirati daily Khaleej
Times. Moro Hub is a subsidiary of Digital DEWA, which is part
of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA).

The new data centre will be located in the Mohammed bin
Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, and will use 100% renewable energy
with a capacity of more than 100 megawatts. This is the second
solar-powered data centre that Moro Hub has launched in Dubai.

The agreement was signed by Marwan bin Haidar, vice president
and CEO of Digital DEWA, and Jerry Liu, CEO of Huawei UAE, in
the presence of Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and
CEO of DEWA, and Charles Yang, president of Huawei Middle East.

“The sustainable data centre supports the initiatives of
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE vice president and
prime minister, to make the country a place of the future,
putting Dubai 10 years ahead of other global cities,” Al Tayer

Efforts are aimed at decreasing CO2 emissions, which in fact
Dubai did, by 22%, in 2019. The data centre will offer services
to large companies.

“The new centre is the largest in the area and will allow large
international companies to access the technology without
producing emissions,” Al Tayer said. (ANSAmed).
