(26 January 2024, Shenzhen) Templewater is proud to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with the Integrated Transport Centre Abu Dhabi ("ITC"). The MOU is set to advance the Green Bus Project, a series of initiatives designed to revolutionize the public transportation system in Abu Dhabi with sustainable and eco-friendly solutions.

Under the MOU, Templewater and ITC have committed to a partnership that encompasses joint action and coordination across several strategic areas, with the shared goal of establishing a new benchmark for green public transportation in Mohammed Bin Zayed City and beyond.

The agreed areas of collaboration include:

- Green Electricity Generation: Implementing a state-of-the-art green energy solution at the Mohammed Bin Zayed City Public Transport Depot ("The Green PT Depot"). This entails the installation of solar photovoltaic systems and the integration of battery energy storage systems to ensure a sustainable and reliable power supply for the bus fleet operations.

- Hydrogen Refueling Stations (“HRS”): Developing HRSs with on-site hydrogen production capabilities. These stations will serve as critical infrastructure for the deployment of a new generation of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

- Supplying, Operation, and Management of Eco-Friendly Bus Fleet: Supplying a fleet of fuel cell electric vehicles ("FCEV") and battery electric vehicles ("BEV") buses, showcasing a variety of models from the renowned manufacturer, Wisdom Motor, a Templewater portfolio company. This initiative will introduce a wide range of eco-friendly buses tailored to various operational requirements, leveraging Templewater's industry expertise in fleet operation and management.
