Published on December 15, 2023

In alignment with the UAE Net Zero 2050 strategy, ENOC Group, a leading integrated global energy player, today announced its partnership with SAP, the global leader in enterprise application software, and Moro Hub, a subsidiary of Digital DEWA, the digital arm of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (PJSC). This partnership will further enhance cloud solutions within the Group through ‘RISE with SAP’, a comprehensive business transformation solution to ensure sustainable digitalisation. This solution will be hosted on Moro’s Green Data Centre. 

This strategic move allows ENOC to accelerate its cloud journey in a single contract through a unified package, incorporating SAP S/4HANA Cloud as a core component.

Commenting on this collaboration, H. E.

“Our commitment to sustainability aligns with the principles of the UAE Net Zero 2050 goals, and hosting RISE with SAP exemplifies our dedication to fostering a responsible and eco-conscious digital landscape. This collaboration is a testament to Moro Hub’s role as a positive catalyst of change, where we are not just a host, but an enabler of sustainable progress. We are confident that RISE with SAP hosted in Moro Hub’s Green Data Centre will play a pivotal role in shaping a greener and more digitally advanced future for the UAE and businesses alike,” said Marwan Bin Haidar, Vice Chairman & Group CEO of Digital DEWA.

The Green Data Centre, inaugurated by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, holds the Guinness World Record for the largest solar-powered data centre, exemplifying its commitment to sustainable innovation and setting new industry benchmarks. In line with the UAE’s sustainability agenda, the Green Data Centre is carbon-neutral and spans 100,000 square meters. With advanced security features and Tier III Certification for both design and construction, it guarantees reliability and performance. The facility, operating entirely on renewable energy sources, reflects Moro Hub’s commitment to environmental stewardship.

“The implementation of RISE with SAP marks a significant milestone in our long-standing partnership with ENOC and Moro Hub. This new and exciting step underscores our shared commitment to sustainability and supports the UAE’s Net Zero 2050 objectives. By harnessing the capabilities of SAP S/4HANA hosted on Moro’s green data centre, ENOC is setting a new standard for sustainable innovations,” said Manos Raptopoulos, President, EMEA South, SAP.

Beyond the technological advancements, this project represents a significant leap towards sustainable digital transformation, in alignment with the UAE Net Zero 2050 strategic initiative.
