Dubai, UAE: Majid Al Futtaim, the leading shopping mall, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East and North Africa, and Veolia, a global leader in optimized environmental resource management, announced ‘Enova’ as the new name for its joint venture company formerly known as MAF Dalkia Middle East.
Founded in 2002, Enova has established itself as much more than a facilities management company, acting as a ‘business booster’ by developing bespoke energy management solutions that guarantee energy savings for B2B customers across the Middle East.
Ahmed Galal Ismail, Majid Al Futtaim Ventures CEO & Enova Chairman commented: “This name encapsulates Enova’s commitment to providing innovative facilities and energy management solutions to regional customers and is an important milestone for the company as it embarks on expansion into key MENA markets. This expansion will be an important contributor to Majid Al Futtaim’s goal of doubling its business in the next 5 years.”
Enova has ambitious regional expansion plans including a new 150-staff operation opening in Egypt in July to provide essential energy and facilities management services to two of Egypt’s most desired shopping malls, City Centre Alexandria and City Centre Maadi in Cairo.
Patrice Fonlladosa, President and CEO of Veolia Africa & Middle East stated “At Enova, the aim is to transform the asset management industry by guaranteeing the long-term cost and environmental benefits of focusing on greener and more economical energy and business solutions. Currently, Enova manages over three hundred fifty thousand assets on behalf of clients in the Middle East”.
Enova has already connected over five thousand points to its Energy Saving Center, an innovative proprietary tool, which has the capability to process building energy data in real-time, enabling Enova to guarantee financial and energy savings to its customers.
These figures represent the management of the equivalent of 71,000 UAE inhabitants’ utilities consumption.
Ismail and Fonlladosa also confirmed that the management team remains fully committed to strengthening Enova’s operations and technical teams in order to continue delivering service excellence for its clients and partners.
