Moro Hub launches the region's first solar-powered Green Data Centre at WETEX 2020

Dubai, UAE: Moro Hub (Data Hub Integrated Solutions LLC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) announced the launch of the Middle East’s first certified Tier-III Green Data Centre on 28th October at the virtual edition of The Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX), the first-ever Carbon Neutral 3D exhibition in the MENA region focusing on Water, Energy, Sustainability & Innovation which runs until 28th October. Located at Al-Yalayis, Dubai, this is the region's first Data Centre fully powered by solar energy.

The announcement, which was made by HE Saeed Mohammad Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, positions Moro Hub as a leading contributor to the UAE’s Circular Economy, while majorly contributing to the endeavours of DEWA in its sustainability journey.

HE Saeed Al Tayer commented:“We work in line with the vision and directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The launch of the Middle East’s first solar-powered Green Data Centre represents a new achievement for Moro Hub.  This reinforces the Scale 360 Initiative that the UAE has signed as the first country in the world, in collaboration with the World Economic Forum to benefit from technology innovation and advanced solutions in accelerating the circular economy; while using fewer natural resources and reducing pollution to mitigate climate change.”

“Dubai continues to maintain its leading position with sustainable and futuristic solutions. This is in alignment with the government plans and strategies including the UAE Centennial 2071, that aims to make the UAE the world’s leading nation. It is also in line with the Dubai 10X initiative to transform and position Dubai ahead of other cities around the world by 10 years; which also aligns with the objectives of Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to provide 75 percent of Dubai's total power capacity from clean energy by 2050,” added Al Tayer.

The first certified Tier-III new Green Data Centre will be leveraged to offer digital products and services utilising Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies such as cloud services, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Moro Hub invests great efforts in providing the latest technologies and services to its clients while remaining a responsible corporate citizen to the environment and its community. Hence, Moro Hub’s Green Data Centre will help our clients in their sustainability initiatives to reduce their carbon emission and be carbon neutral or negative.

At Moro Hub, our solutions are backed by energy conservation practices. The Green Data Centre reflects our efforts to reduce carbon emissions, as well as implement measures and initiatives that translate into environmental sustainability. While this marks the launch of the first-of-its-kind in the region, our journey to sustainable digital transformation does not end here. In the coming years, we plan to introduce several such green data centres and bigger initiatives that will continue the positive momentum for a clean and green future.
