For the first time to be launched in the Middle East
ENGIE, a worldwide energy leader, and the leading independent power and water developer/operator in the GCC countries, launched Partnering Robotics’ Diya One. Diya One was introduced during the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi for the first time in the Middle East region during a Tech Talk session, which took place at the Energy Efficiency Theatre on 16th January, 2018 at 12.30pm.
The press was briefed by Helene Verbockhaven, Deputy Director, ENGIE Digital and Dr. Ramesh Caussy, Founder of Partnering Robotics.
Globally, ENGIE started working on this project with Partnering Robotics in 2015. Diya One is an intelligent robot, which purifies air as it moves around inside the building, as well as also delivers other functions, such as reducing energy consumption and managing maintenance requests from occupants. Combining the specialist expertise of ENGIE Cofely with Partnering Robotics’ innovation, the partnership will facilitate a range of innovative services to be developed in order to boost building energy performance.
“The launch of Diya One in the region is aligned with our strategic goals in becoming a leader in energy transition. Energy efficiency is pivotal to ensuring a safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy system for the future. Through this partnership, we remain committed to seek and implement solutions collectively for energy challenges across the region,” said Florence Fontani, Director of Strategy, Communications & ESR, ENGIE Middle East, South & Central Asia, and Turkey.
“This fully autonomous robot could contribute to foster a more sustainable and healthier indoor environment; allow efficient building energy management; and assist in monitoring security in buildings and at events,” she added.
“When I set up Partnering Robotics in 2007, I had a dream of creating an intelligent device, which is able to contribute to people’s well-being but at the same time is energy efficient. We live in a world, where air pollution is becoming a major health issue; Diya One was developed with this cause in mind. Thanks to its innovative features, Diya One gathers various environmental data and store them in a secured cloud, it evaluates the indoor air quality in real time, for better, quicker, and appropriate response to complex and changing air phenomena, as well as it is able to self-evaluate its battery life and can decide to get back to its dedicated charging dock when needed,” said Dr. Ramesh Caussy, Founder of Partnering Robotics.
“Strategic partnerships in research, digital and energy fields, are the core of the innovation strategy of Partnering Robotics. We are honoured and grateful to have ENGIE as our partner, and we are look forward to many more years of innovations together,” he continued.
ENGIE is the leading independent power and desalination water developer and producer in the Gulf Corporation Council countries, with a total gross portfolio of 30,000 MW power and over 1200 MIGD desalination water production.
