Key Highlights of the MoU

  • BESIX, and partner HZI, will cooperate on training, knowledge exchange, conferences, and field visits related to our field of work, with a strong focus on sustainable energy solutions.
  • Dubai Municipality will support BESIX and HZI in researching and publishing scientific papers, exchanging knowledge and experiences, and participating in relevant conferences, particularly those related to BESIX’s energy transition projects.
