The new complex of Dewa’s Moro Hub can reportedly handle over a hundred megawatts of power. It spans 16,000 square meters.

The facility, which is known as the world’s biggest solar-powered data center, is located in Dubai. It is part of the Mohammed bin Rashid Solar Park.

The facility is a part of the Moro Hub complex, which is a subsidiary of Dubai’s Digital Dewa.

The facility, which was officially opened by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed, the Crown Prince of Dubai, was recognized by the Guinness World Records as the largest solar-powered data center.

According to a statement, the facility aims to provide various services such as cybersecurity, cloud computing, and data hosting. It also supports smart cities and the Internet of Things.

According to Al Tayer, the facility is an exceptional model for combining digital and energy technology.

He noted that the facility will help support the goals of Dubai’s Clean Energy Strategy and the Dubai Net Zero emissions Strategy.

“The new data centre reflects our commitment to support the development of a sustainable economy and our efforts to transform Dubai into a global green economy hub. Moro Hub has always been a front-runner in promoting digital transformation and sustainability as well as enhancing its integrated solutions to help organisations and companies reach net-zero carbon emissions,” Mr Al Tayer said.

The United Arab Emirates is leading the way in adopting digital transformation and is expected to see its digital economy grow to over $131 billion in 2031.

Some of the key technology partners of Moro Hub include Emirates NBD, Dubai Islamic Bank, and VMWare.
