Luxury residential and hospitality property developer Seven Tides has installed Tesla Destination Charging connectors at three of its Dubai properties – Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort, Dukes Dubai on Palm Jumeirah and at the Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate.
Located at the entrance of each hotel, the two Tesla charging stations offer ease and convenience for Tesla-driving residents and guests, who can simply pull up and plug in, adding up to 90km per hour range to the battery.
Abdulla bin Sulayem, chief executive, Seven Tides, said: “Sustainability is integral to every area of our organisation. We want to reduce our carbon footprint and help others to do the same.
“So to promote a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle and transition to alternate transport solutions, we are happy to offer these charging stations across our properties for free.”
Seven Tides will be showcasing this and other sustainable initiatives at this year’s Arabian Travel Market from their stand HC0270.
The chargers will help reach the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, to make Dubai a global centre of clean energy and a more sustainable economy by providing seven per cent of the emirate’s total energy output from clean resources by 2020, 25 per cent by 2030 and 75 per cent by 2050.
The Destination Charger is a type 2 charging unit, which can charge vehicles from a range of 7-22 kW, with the average charge time between three to four hours depending on the battery level.
Elon Musk, co-founder of the California-based auto manufacturer, has previously announced in Dubai that his game-changing vehicles would enter the UAE market this summer and will be supported
