Dubai SDME 2nd International Workshop

On April 16th, 4 team members visited Dubai to attend the SDME 2nd International Workshop. Highlights from the workshop were: 

  • We met with Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority and Dutch Consulate. The team received positive feedback on their activities 
  • The team also visited the LINQ construction location at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.  
  • We interacted with other teams present at the workshop. It was important for VIRTUe to validate the process and plans for upcoming months. We are happy to be on track with LINQ's overall strategic vision.
