Dubai Creek boasts solar panels cleaned with treated sewage water
The Dubai Creek will now play home to solar panels that will soak in the sun’s rays and juice up the batteries of a little boat that the maintenance engineers will use. The boat, a battery powered vessel, is being tested currently by German-engineering firm Waagner Biro Gulf. The firm has also developed a system of cleaning up solar panels and keeping dust away using treated sewage water. A portacabin passes on the sewage through a reed cabin that treats the water and cleanses it. In future, the solar panels will be used to charge up bigger boats that run on electricity if all goes as planned.
Slowly and surely, the Dubai Creek will be free of gas guzzling vessels, making way for electric boats instead.
