The MoU was signed at a virtual ceremony today (January 21), as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) 2021, taking place virtually in the UAE capital this week.

On the new deal, Masdar CEO Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi said: "CGGC is one of the world’s leading international engineering companies, and is active in many sectors that Masdar is interested in, including renewable energy and urban communities – both of which are key to sustainable development."
"Masdar today is active in more than 30 countries around the world, invested in projects totaling 10.7GW in capacity and $20 billion in value, and we are always interested in exploring potential opportunities with partners," noted Al Ramahi.
"We look forward to seeing if there are global potential areas of collaboration and concrete projects that could be mutually beneficial for our companies to engage in," he stated.
