China’s Envision to set up Wind Power Manufacturing Plant in Saudi Arabia
Date: Abu Dhabi, UAE, September 07, 2022
Envision, a Chinese net zero energy technology partner, will set up a wind power blade manufacturing unit in Saudi Arabia which will support the wind power industry in the Middle East and Africa, a senior company official said.
“We plan to start our office in Saudi Arabia this year and hope to start production of wind power blades and battery by 2024 to support the growing wind power industry in the Middle East and Africa,” George Wang, Chief Technology Officer of Envision said at an interview conducted at the MENA Power Projects 2022 Conference at the Conrad Etihad Towers Abu Dhabi.
“We have recently started our operations with a regional office in Dubai. We have just under ten professionals deployed to explore the market opportunities. We plan to double the workforce by early next year.
“The opportunities in the renewable energy, especially wind, solar and green hydrogen are huge and we are here at the right time. There is no limit to the opportunities in the renewable energy sector. While the UAE has pursued solar and nuclear power to create a better energy mix, Saudi Arabia is well positioned to undertake wind power to reduce its carbon footprint.”
He, however, declined to reveal the investment outlay for the factory.
Envision, a global smart company, was established in China in 2007. In 2020, it launched the world’s first net-zero industrial park in China.
Envision partners with leading organisations to help them achieve their net zero goals. It collaborates with businesses, institutions, and governments to develop bold and comprehensive solutions to meet the challenges of a sustainable future.
Globally, the target has been set to achieve net-zero emission. That’s why most countries are engaged in the decarbonization process to improve environmental sustainability.
“We have already secured investment to the tune of US$16 billion – along with our partners in the industrial park, that will become a model for the future,” he said. “Wind and Solar power are the new coal and battery is the new oil and we need to deliver new grid.
“Our strategy is to provide green, cheap and stable energy to the consumers on a long terms basis.”
