Dubai Government Workshop (DGW), which maintains vehicles, machinery and equipment owned by the government, is partnering with Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO) to set up a 2.49 megawatts (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant within its Dubai facility.

The agreement was signed by Fahad Ahmed Al Raeesi, Executive Director of DGW, and Waleed Alnuaimi, CEO of Etihad ESCO, according to a DGW press statement.

The plant is projected to generate 3.79 million kWh of clean energy, reducing carbon emissions by 1.37 million kilogrammes in the first year of operation, the statement said.

DGW’s workshops are located in AlRuwayyah, according to its website.
