Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer gave him a briefing on the integrated solutions the facility has developed to deliver next-generation services in the fields of digital transformation, cloud and hosting services, cybersecurity, smart cities, IoT services, professional and managed services, as well as Moro services supported by ChatGPT technology.

His Highness’s concept served as the blueprint for the construction of the largest solar-powered data center in the world. The new center is yet another accomplishment that increases the UAE’s status as a key player in developing sustainability and the green economy, according to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The center is a superb example of how to merge digital and energy technologies. Saeed Mohammed Tayer stated that the data center “supports the goal of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Emissions Strategy 2050 to generate 100% of its energy production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050 with a world-class low-carbon information technology infrastructure powered by solar energy.”

“Moro Hub’s solar-powered data center aids in our attempts to meet the objectives of the strategic initiative’s Net Zero by 2050 goal. The Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the largest international climate meeting, is being held in the UAE this year, making this endeavor extremely relevant. The new data center demonstrates our dedication to promoting the growth of a sustainable economy and our initiatives to make Dubai a center for the green economy on a global scale. In addition to advancing its integrated solutions to assist organizations and businesses in achieving net-zero carbon emissions, Moro Hub has always been a leader in supporting digital transformation and sustainability.

The creation of a new sustainable ecosystem incorporating cutting-edge solar energy and storage technology, AI systems, and sustainability practices will be significantly aided by the solar-powered data center. Additionally, it will make carbon-free computing available to worldwide hyper-scalers and aid organizations in lowering their carbon impact.
