The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has awarded a contract to Ted Jacobs Engineering Group to design and supervise the construction of The Solar Innovation Centre.
Kettle Collective will work closely with TJEG as the lead architect for the project, which is being undertaken by Dewa with the support of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.
“Dewa designs and develops innovative projects in the field of clean energy to further support sustainable development in Dubai,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of Dewa. “Our efforts are in line with the vision of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to establish Dubai as a global hub of finance, trade, tourism and sustainability.”
The Solar Innovation Centre will be a main focal point for companies, researchers, university students, individuals working in the field of solar energy, as well as developers and manufacturers of clean-energy technologies. The centre is expected to be completed by November next year.
“The Solar Innovation Centre is a sustainable architecture and a value-adding facility to the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park," said Al Tayer. “The building will be a platform to showcase the latest solar and sustainable technologies and highlight Dewa's achievements in this field."
Tony Kettle, Director and Design Principal of Kettle Collective, said: "We are delighted to have been selected for this project, not only because of the competition that we were up against but because of the importance of this building in the future of Dubai."
