Abu Dhabi Ports’ new initiative to cut emissions by half

Abu Dhabi Ports has launched the Smart Container Initiative that will house its digital solutions in a resilient, safe and optimised eco-friendly mobile environment.

Powered by clean energy, the solar-panelled steel and aluminium smart container uses eco-friendly technologies such as in-row cooling, renewable energy and efficient space allocation.

These "green" technology systems are expected to reduce Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) by more than 20% and will slash carbon emissions by 50%.

The prefabricated containerised data centre runs a wide range of mission-critical applications, including port and terminal operation systems, visitor passes, and other digital customer services.

Environmentally friendly mobile data centre modules enhance efficiency and business continuity.

Dr Noura Al Dhaheri, head of digital cluster and CEO of Maqta Gateway considers this initiative as a crucial step in the "effort to provide agile and scalable end-to-end smart services to all our stakeholders and customers whilst ensuring business continuity."

"Global maritime organisations need to reassess traditional ways of conducting business and to seek out sophisticated alternatives especially during times of economic upheaval," said Abu Dhabi Ports Group CEO, captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi. "We are committed to investing in ultra-modern green and clean technology and innovative digital infrastructure that ensures business continuity at all times," he added.
