Move aimed at keeping Reem Island waterways and mangroves clean.
Tafawuq Facilities Management, a subsidiary of UAE-based Eltizam Asset Management Group, has announced the addition of a boat to its growing fleet of vehicles in Abu Dhabi.
The introduction of its first waterborne vehicle allows Tafawuq’s operational teams to keep various locations on Reem Island free of any debris, including the surrounding waterways and mangrove areas.
The company recognises that mangroves are some of the UAE’s most sensitive natural habitats, being breeding grounds for fish, birds and other organisms as well as acting as a carbon sink.
The new boat reinforces the company’s reputation of being able to consistently deliver world-class innovative & technology driven facilities management services and provide tailored solutions for residential and commercial communities, healthcare facilities, individual homeowners, retail space, ports and aviation, and IT and data centers. The company services more than 200 clients and 10 million square feet of real estate; managing an array of high-profile facilities including Marina Bay and Oceanscape.
Mohammed Alsharaf, COO, Eltizam Asset Management Group, said: “We believe every company has a responsibility towards the environment and our new boat will ensure that Eltizam upholds its pledge in this regard by cleaning the waters adjacent to the projects it services. Achieving customer happiness is our ultimate objective and this new addition to our fleet will be a valuable asset that will elevate the quality of our services. The boat is the first step in a new phase of service and expansion in the UAE that will allow us to progress while maintaining the high standard services that benefit all customers.”
Michael Nicholas, general manager, Tafawuq Facilities Management, said: “We at Tafawuq Facilities Management believe that we can have a significant impact on the living and working environment of the communities, public sector entities and businesses that we serve through our passion. The UAE and GCC are surrounded by waters, and we thought it would be innovative to explore the possibility of maintaining and serving our facilities through a boat to increase efficiency for marina-based customers.”
