RWE sets up energy consultancy joint venture in Dubai

RWE, Germany's second-biggest power supplier, said it had agreed to set up an energy consultancy in Dubai with the state-run Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA).

RWE said its RWE Technology GmbH unit, which specialises in building power plants, and DEWA plan to offer "comprehensive energy consulting services not only to energy suppliers and major industrial enterprises in the region, but also to government authorities, private investors and developers."

The German company would provide expertise as an international project and engineering specialist in the power plant sector.

As the public energy and water utility of the Emirate of Dubai, DEWA had access to markets in the Middle East, particularly in the United Arab Emirates.

"It will therefore take responsibility within the joint venture for the areas of marketing, sales and local procurement," the statement said.

"The Middle East and also North Africa are interesting and growing markets for RWE Technology's engineering business," said RWE executive board member Leonhard Birnbaum.

DEWA chief executive Al Tayer said; "We are convinced that RWE is the right partner to assist us in making an important contribution to more efficient and eco-friendly energy supply in the Middle East."
