Masdar-EDF JV to develop 7MWp solar plant for Khazna Data Centers
It will supply power to Khazna’s second data centre in Masdar City.
Emerge, a joint venture between Masdar and EDF signed an agreement with Khazna Data Centers to develop a 7-megawatt-peak (MWp) ground-mounted solar plant that will provide power to Khazna’s new data center in Masdar City.
In a statement, Masdar said Emerge will be managing the project for 25 years. This will bring Emerge’s Abu Dhabi portfolio in operation and in delivery to over 25MWp.
Khazna Abu Dhabi 6 (AUH 6) facility, Khazna’s second data centre in Masdar City, is currently under construction and is scheduled to operate in 2023.
“This agreement with Khazna Data Centers advances Abu Dhabi’s commitment to sustainability and high-tech industry, and extends Emerge’s range of offerings,” said Emerge General Manager Michel Abi Saab.
“By providing and managing a reliable source of clean energy, Emerge will enable Khazna to focus on providing high-quality data center services to its clients within Masdar City and beyond,” he added.
