    Masdar JV teams up with Coca-Cola unit for new solar project

    January 30, 2023 - TradeArabia


      Emerge, a joint venture between Abu Dhabi-based clean energy company Masdar and French energy giant EDF, has signed an agreement with Coca-Cola Al Ahlia Beverages, the soft drink brand's bottler and distributor in the UAE, to set up a 1.8 MWp solar photovoltaic plant for its Al Ain facility.

      The commercial and industrial (C&I) project, located at the Coca-Cola bottling facility in Al Ain, will be a combination of ground-mounted, rooftop, and car park installations.

      As per the deal, Emerge will provide a full turnkey solution - including the design, procurement and construction, for the solar project as well as providing the operation and maintenance of the plant for 25 years.

      The agreement was signed by Coca Cola Al Ahlia Beverages CEO Mohamed Akeel and Emerge General Manager Michel Abi Saab at the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) held recently.

      Abi Saab pointed out that Emerge was increasing its C&I footprint in the UAE through its collaboration with reputed companies such as Coca Cola Al Ahlia Beverage.

      "We are confident the 1.8 MWp solar PV plant we will build, operate and maintain for Coco-Cola bottler - like the facilities we are building for our other partners Miral, Khazna Data Centers, and Al Dahra Food Industries - will provide stable and clean energy for its Al Ain facility for decades to come," he added.

      On the key partnership, Akeel said it was a significant milestone for the soft drinks brand as it continues to drive and embrace innovation in every part of the business while reducing the carbon footprint.

      "Our agreement with Emerge will allow us to reach yet another sustainability milestone - a big aspect of which is the integration of more renewable energy into our operations," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
