Emirates Transport (ET) and Huawei UAE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore the development of a network of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations and ancillary infrastructure for ET and its clients, as demand for the sector continues to increase.
The MoU was signed during GITEX Global 2023, at the World Trade Centre in Dubai, by Alex Rentier, CEO of Emirates Transport, and Liu Jiawei, CEO of Huawei UAE.
Under the terms of the strategic partnership, ET and Huawei, the Chinese tech giants who ventured into the EV market, will collaborate on specific project requirements to provide suitable EV charging solutions for ET and its clients.
The collaboration could also potentially be a gateway to introducing the latest innovative EV charger solution from Huawei, Fusion Charge, a state-of-art solution of ultra-fast EV charger capable of fully charging a vehicle in less than 15 minutes.
The agreement is expected to help both companies capitalise on the growing EV market in the UAE, and to help accelerate green transport infrastructure development in the country.
Alex Rentier, CEO of Emirates Transport said: “As one of the leading providers of transport services in the country, we are proud to enter into this agreement with a global leader in the technology and electric vehicle markets.
“We hope this agreement can be the start of a long and strategic partnership that will help both companies firmly establish their presence in the ever-growing EV market here in the UAE,” he added.
Liu Jiawei, CEO from Huawei UAE, said: “As a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, Huawei has been continuously acting as a solid digital foundation for the UAE’s vision of digital transformation and sustainable development. In a joint effort with Emirates Transport, we believe that we can better contribute to a greener world for a more sustainable future by leveraging the full potential of advanced technologies”.
