DP World, Masdar to develop renewable energy solutions

DP World has entered into a collaboration agreement with Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) to research and install renewable energy solutions.

This collaboration will mainly focus on developing these energy solutions across DP World’s port operations in the Middle East and Africa.

According to DP World, the partnership intends to facilitate the broad use of renewable energy and battery energy storage systems (BESS) throughout the company’s worldwide supply chain.

Throughout the three-year agreement, DP World and Masdar will reportedly collaborate to identify suitable locations for the prospective deployment of solar and energy storage systems, with an initial focus on Saudi Arabia, Senegal, and Egypt.

In January, DP World went fossil-free at both its UK logistics hubs with the removal of fossil diesel from its operations at London Gateway.
