Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) alongside Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) have announced their new global milestone venture with innovation to utmost core within the global first breakthrough the solar-powered aluminium for all its global clients under the tag line of CelestiAL.
The Dubai based Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) alongside Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) have stated their latest venture attaining a global breakthrough as well as milestone by making the UAE being the initial nation globally for production of aluminium with the aid of solar power that is already abundant there.
With the full authoritative support guided by the visionary his highness, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE as well as Ruler of Dubai, for making the nation the most sustainable city within the global standards.
There is an agreement that has been chartered out within both the parties Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) on Monday, January 18, with the consent of DEWA who will source EGA’s smelter with Five Lakhs and Sixty Thousand megawatt hours solar power annually from the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, located in Dubai, that is also sufficient for manufacturing of Forty Thousand Tonnes of Aluminium within the initial year with the high prospect for huge progression.
This Solar powered park has an existing installed capacity for over 1,013 megawatts utilizing the photovoltaic solar powered panels. They the DEWA are further executing a further 1,850-Megawatt project utilizing Solar Powered Panels as well as Concentrated Solar Power (CSP). Its overall capacity will be ultimately within the next decade in 2030 will touch around Five Thousand Megawatts.
The statement further added that the EGA has acquired rights for providing this solar-powered aluminium for all its globalized clients under the brand and latest product name CelestiAL.
EGA’s tracking of solar power from Dubai’s electricity grid will be pursued and outlined through the utilization of the International Renewable Energy Certification System, guaranteeing that the energy utilized to invent the EGA’s CelestiAL solar aluminium has been obtained from the Solar energy.
The Managing director and CEO of DEWA and vice chairman of EGA, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, stated that: “the agreement was in line along with the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 whose primary purposes is to deliver 75 percent of Dubai’s overall energy manufacturing volume from clean energy sources within the year 2050.”
“This particular accomplishment contributes to supporting our efforts in tumbling carbon emissions through the Dubai Carbon Abatement Strategy. Dubai reduced carbon emissions by 22 percent in 2019 compared to business as usual. Results attained surpassed the targets set in the Dubai Carbon Abatement Strategy, whose intentions is to diminish carbon emissions by 16 percent by 2021.”
CEO of EGA, Abdulnasser bin Kalban, stated further that, “Aluminium is a lightweight, strong and infinitely recyclable metal and these properties mean that as a material it plays a vital global role in the development of a sustainable future. However, it also matters how sustainably aluminium is made. CelestiAL aluminium made in the UAE with solar power, will support modern life for people around the world while also protecting our planet for future generations.”
Aluminium is primarily utilized within primary products and building up better infrastructure from smartphones to skyscrapers. Its utilization includes applications that subsidize to a more sustainable environment from wind farms to electric vehicles, and mass transit to solar panels.
