ACWA Power to highlight its role as a global accelerator
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 26 - 10 - 2020

ACWA Power, a leading developer, investor and operator of power generation and desalinated water plants worldwide, will showcase its portfolio of leading renewable energy and water desalination projects at the at 22nd Water, Energy, Technology and Environment exhibition (WETEX) as a Titanium Sponsor.
Unlike any of its former editions, WETEX 2020 is launching virtually and will be the first ever carbon-neutral, 3D exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa on Water, Energy, Sustainability and Innovation.
Cementing its role as a global accelerator of energy transformation, this year at WETEX 2020, ACWA Power will be exhibiting its record-breaking projects that played an instrumental role in lowering renewable energy tariff levels and opened new opportunities in energy efficiency and water production through a virtual 3D interactive stand.
The milestone projects will include Shuaa Energy, (MBR Solar Park Phase III); Noor Energy 1 (MBR Solar Park Phase IV); ACWA Power's newest win – Shuaa Energy 3 (MBR Solar Park Phase V); Umm Al Quwain IWP; and Taweelah IWP, the largest desalination project in the world.
Commenting on ACWA Power's participation at WETEX 2020, Mohammad Abunayyan, chairman of ACWA Power, said: "As always, we are pleased to play a strategic role in one of the largest and most important global water, environment, and energy exhibitions led by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA).
"We are honoured to have established a robust partnership with DEWA to develop and operate vital projects that promote the sustainable development of the United Arab Emirates and fortify Dubai's position as a global hub for the green economy, all the while contributing towards Dubai's ambitious Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to increase its renewable energy share to 75% by the year 2050.
"The partnership between ACWA Power and DEWA serves as a global module for successful public-private partnerships geared towards supplying energy at a cost efficient and reliable rate.
"This year, WETEX is going to be more critical than ever as a result of the increasing economic implications incited by the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Prioritizing innovation today is key to unlocking postcrisis growth — and WETEX is the ideal platform that gathers like-minded stakeholders, governments and companies who are eager to explore and reciprocate insights and visions on forward-looking smart technologies and electrification solutions for a collective prosperous future."
Abunayyan also highlighted that this year's edition is of particular importance in regards to Dubai's water desalination sector as the emirate has taken a strategic focus on enhancing the sector's efficiency by increasing its reliance on reverse osmosis technology, expanding its deployment and leveraging modern solutions that utilise energy sources to produce desalinated water.
ACWA Power is partaking in three leading seminars during WETEX this year. Paddy Padmanathan, president and CEO of ACWA Power, is joining the CEO Roundtable alongside CEO of Engie KSA, Turki Alshehri and CEO of Sterling & Wilson, Bikesh Ogra, to discuss the challenges posed by the pandemic and how to prepare for a post COVID-19 world.
Abla Addas, business development manager at ACWA Power, will run a seminar on the challenges and opportunities of "Energy Efficiency, Sustainability and Conservation" following the immense impact of the lockdown period on the environment. Dr. Andrea Lovato, vice president & head of renewables development at ACWA Power, will lead a robust session on the potential of green hydrogen as a cleaner alternative to fossil fuels.
With a constantly evolving portfolio of clean energy plants, ACWA Power has been a prominent contributor to the development, investment, and operation of renewable energy plants internationally, with 21.5% of its current global portfolio dedicated to renewable energy.
The 22nd WETEX and the 5th Dubai Solar Show (DSS) 3D virtual exhibition will be the first of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa. It will provide a new experience for exhibitors and visitors from around the world to learn, engage and network with the pioneering industry players.
The DEWA-led event will enable exhibitors to display their products innovatively through 3D customisable stands and facilitate meetings, seminars, and workshops using the latest smart technologies. — SG
