RedSea, an innovative AgTech that enables commercial agriculture in hot environments, has announced the commissioning of its greenhouse facility. The new Abu Dhabi facility, which is the first in the United Arab Emirates, will diversify food products and boost the region’s agricultural-food sector.


RedSea’s sustainable agricultural technologies are on display at the UAE audience’s first glimpse. This showcase facility of one hectare will encourage wider adoption of the technology in the UAE, which will benefit local growers and have a significant impact on Abu Dhabi’s agriculture ecosystem. This project was awarded the HSBC Living Business Award for innovative water management and efficiency.


RedSea’s Chief Executive Officer Ryan Lefers stated, “We are thrilled for UAE audiences to see our award-winning technology. It is changing global controlled environment agriculture as well as open-field agriculture.” Local growers have clear options to make use of this technology to increase production yields, be more sustainable and more profitable. “


Miles Thornhill is the Team Head of Corporate Banking at HSBC and Head of Business Banking UAE as well. He said, “HSBC is committed to helping to deliver a net-zero global economy. This includes channelling investment toward sustainable projects. RedSea is an example of a sustainable finance company that has the potential to scale up and show solutions that will help create a better future.”

RedSea’s facility compares its roots to roof technology with current technologies in the GCC. RedSea’s technologies consist of low-cost, heat-blocking iyris roofing, a climate-controlled, recirculating deep-water culture system for the growth of berries, and a saltwater-evaporative cooling unit that operates without desalination. RedSea’s climate-adaptive IoT sensors, which enable remote monitoring and greenhouse management, will be the management system.

RedSea’s sustainable technologies are demonstrated in the greenhouse facility, which is powered by 2,000m2 high-powered solar panels that act as agrivoltaics. Protected crops are grown under the panels and heat-blocking net.
