Hitachi Zosen Inova Selected to Develop the Waste to Energy Facility in Abu Dhabi

Following a major global procurement process that began in July 2022 and is managed by the Abu Dhabi-based Emirates Water & Electricity Company (EWEC) and Tadweer Group, final bids were later submitted in April 2023 for detailed evaluation. The concession agreement has now been signed at the Abu Dhabi Energy Centre by Othman Al Ali, Chief Executive Officer of EWEC, along with Ali Al Dhaheri, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Tadweer Group, and Roni Araiji, consortium representative and Managing Director Middle East of Hitachi Zosen Inova.

EWEC and Tadweer Group have selected a consortium led by Marubeni Corporation, consisting of Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) and the Japan Overseas Infrastructure Investment Corporation for Transport & Urban Development (JOIN), to design, build and operate the world’s most advanced and efficient Waste to Energy (WtE) plant in Abu Dhabi. Once operational, the new facility will drive forward the UAE’s circular economy and, importantly, will accelerate the capital city’s move away from landfill dependency.

Abu Dhabi’s first WtE plant will be located near the Al-Dhafra landfill and will have a processing capacity of 900,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste each year for the next 30 years. This will significantly boost Abu Dhabi’s transition away from reliance on landfill, considered by many as the least sustainable form of waste management. This important project will underpin the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.1 million tonnes annually.
