Siemens and Diamond Developers have signed an MoU to explore implementing new smart solutions for Diamond Developers’ existing and future projects.
The signing was done via video call between Diamond Developers offices in The Sustainable City, and Siemens offices in Abu Dhabi and Germany. The MoU sets a framework for Siemens and Diamond Developers to create a partnership that supports the building of low carbon, inclusive, safe, and resilient cities and communities across the world.
The Sustainable City was designed as a model for future cities, with the ultimate illustration of social, environmental, and economic solutions, to make the city truly sustainable it was designed around people’s needs, quality of life, and wellbeing.
The city grows its own food, produces renewable energy, recycles water & waste, restricts cars and encourages clean mobility. This results in reducing carbon emissions, increasing performance, and minimizing cost.
Faris Saeed, CEO of Diamond Developers, said “We are committed to supporting the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to turn Dubai and the Emirates in general into one of the most sustainable countries in the world. We can all play a part and contribute to achieving this goal, and this partnership with Siemens will help us continue enhancing and improving our model of sustainable cities in the UAE and around the world, making our cities smarter and more efficient, and enhancing the quality of life in general.”
Franco Atassi, the CEO of Siemens Smart Infrastructure in the Middle East “Sustainable City in Dubai is already a model of efficiency, exporting more than a quarter of its solar power and avoiding tons of carbon emissions a year. Our approach of creating digitalized ecosystems from the point of power generation all the way to consumption can bolster energy efficiency and help protect the planet.”
