Shanghai Electric Implements Green Construction Practices to Protect Dubai Natural Environment

29.12.2021: Shanghai Electric (“Shanghai Electric”) (601727.SS or 02727. HK) plays a crucial role in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), helping countries to build low-carbon and green energy infrastructures.

Shanghai Electric (“Shanghai Electric”, or “the Company”) (601727.SS. and 02727. HK) plays a critical role in helping Belt and Road Initiative(BRI) countries to build low-carbon and cleaner energy infrastructure. It also employs green construction practices in its efforts towards minimizing the impact of animal habitats and protecting local ecology systems.

Shanghai Electric’s commitment to environmental protection has seen its engineers work with ecologists to protect local wildlife. It also supports the United Arab Emirates in reaching net-zero carbon goals by helping them build the largest solar thermal power plant in the world for their residents.

Shanghai Electric, as the official partner of Dubai World Expo 2020’s China Pavilion, participated in the construction phase 4 of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.

The project includes a 700MW concentrated sun power (CSP), and a 250MW photovoltaics (PV) plant. It covers 44 square kilometers. That’s equivalent to 6,162 football fields.

Standing in the center of the CSP plant is the 100MW solar power tower, which measures 262 meters in height – the tallest of its kind in the world – and is expected to deliver clean energy to over 320,000 Dubai households and abate 1.6 million tons of CO2 emissions upon completion.

When Shanghai Electric planned and executed construction work, it was a key focus. The Company implemented a series of measures with the assistance of ecology and conservation experts to improve its environmental management, and ensure the safety and well-being of the flora/fauna ecosystem.

Shanghai Electric conducted extensive research and surveys on local animals and plants during the planning stage. This helped to prepare for the wildlife relocation project.

Shanghai Electric, in collaboration with local animal protection agencies, created a specialist team that studied animal behavior and found a way to get wild animals out of the construction area.

The team decided to fence the area and place food and water at 200 meter intervals to lure the animals. This would allow them to safely move them to other areas. Shanghai Electric was able to protect a wide range of species, including camels, sword-antelopes, and even foxes, that are native to Dubai.

Emirates Environmental Group, the largest NGO in the UAE dedicated to environmental conservation, recognized Shanghai Electric’s contribution to the protection of the environment during construction of the Dubai CSP projects. They invited Shanghai Electric, the largest NGO to be involved in the “For Our Emirates we Plant” event in 2020-2021. Eight Sidra trees were planted by Shanghai Electric in the Emirate Ras Al Khaimah.

“The Dubai project covers a large area of land that is home to many wild plants and animals. This complicates the environmental management measures necessary to preserve the local biodiversity intactness. Zhao Hui, manager of the Dubai project, said that the team considered all factors that could pose a threat to wildlife. This helped to protect the local ecological system and help the Dubai government achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

Shanghai Electric looked into ways to conserve resources, reduce environmental pollution and reduce the impact of waste materials from construction work in order to meet its responsibility towards the environment.
