Etihad ESCO, a leading energy service company, has signed an agreement with Jamal Al Ghurair Group to retrofit two of their industrial facilities in Abu Dhabi.
The pair formed the partnership after identifying huge energy savings potential at the Gypsemna and Porcellan factories.
Etihad ESCO is undertaking a detailed analysis of the two industries, after which Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) will be proposed based on the requirements with a view to completing the project by the end of the year.
As the first retrofit programme to be undertaken by Etihad ESCO in the UAE capital, the project is set to pave the way for increased adoption of retrofit measures in the city.
Jamal Al Ghurair Group is a diversified family-owned group with interests in manufacturing, real estate and financial investments and an expanding global presence.
Ali Al Jassim, CEO of Etihad ESCO, said: “We are glad to form this partnership with Jamal Al Ghurair Group, which is first of the many retrofit projects we are set to undertake in the UAE’s capital.
“Al Ghurair’s commitment to promoting energy efficiency will encourage other public and private entities in Abu Dhabi to join the march towards sustainability.”
