July 28, 2021

Islamabad: The Enertech Holding Company Kuwait has joined hands with the Huawei Technologies Pakistan to develop an eco-friendly smart destination and 500MW solar power plants in Pakistan to promote the tourism and renewable energy sectors.

Under a memorandum of understanding signed between the two organisations, Huawei will be the leading technology partner and will support Enertech for the bigger development goal. The projects of Smart Tourist Destinations should be developed with liveability, affordability, sustainability, and a resilient approach.

The ICT technologies can play a vital role in integrating businesses and people lifestyles through user-and-eco-friendly smart city services and solutions. Therefore, smart city development will be a key component of the future construction, tourism and renewable energy sectors of Pakistan.

Both organisations agreed to form a long-term cooperation on smart and safe tourism destination development across architectural planning and construction execution phases by harnessing key technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, AI, IoT, Data Centre Facility & Solutions, Intelligent Security Solutions, and Smart PV Solutions.

The goal of the MoU is to build a state-of-the-art smart destination to attract citizens and tourists from the rest of the world and Pakistan, and establish a partnership for renewable solar power plant development.

The use of key smart city services and ICT infrastructure solutions development in such projects would enable the development of local innovation ecosystem, nurture talent, co-create digital experiences, and empower self-sustainable cost-effective energy solutions.
