Firms will also exchange information and experiences as part of the deal
An advanced weather station will take shape in the Central Region following a signing of an agreement between Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (SEWA) and the Dutch Bundera Consult Company. The new facility will collect data and develop a climate information base for future use in preparing studies on renewable energy projects from wind and solar energy.
The companies will work to establish the station according to the best specifications, while providing modern and advanced data monitoring devices, said a statement.
SEWA chairman Saeed Al Suwaidi signed the deal in the presence of Hamad Al Tunaiji, director of the Energy Transmission Department at the Authority, and Eric Ernst, director of the Dutch Bundera Consult Company.
Al Suwaidi said that SEWA is focused on promoting sustainability and developing a comprehensive energy strategy to seek the best solutions and technologies to ensure energy efficiency according to the highest standards by encouraging cooperation with all actors. He also noted that the increasing demand for energy necessitates moving forward in finding appropriate solutions and developing a strategy that forms a future vision for renewable energy studies in Sharjah.
Ernst added that the Dutch Bundera Consult Company was keen to cooperate with SEWA and develop partnership relations and exchange information and experiences through a specific plan.
Al Tunaiji pointed out that SEWA was looking forward to starting the preparation of specialised studies to implement a number of new projects in the field of alternative and renewable energy from wind and solar energy.
