The innovation was revealed at Six Senses Southern Dunes resort at The Red Sea
Saudi-based developer Red Sea Global (RSG) and telecom provider Zain KSA have unveiled the world's first zero-carbon 5G network at the Six Senses Southern Dunes resort at The Red Sea.
The zero-carbon 5G network, designed exclusively for The Red Sea, is the latest technological innovation at the resort. The network will bring guests “the highest speeds for 5G connectivity in the region” and be powered by 100% renewable energy from more than 760,000 solar panels.
John Pagano, Red Sea Global chief executive, said: “We aspire to be global pioneers of regenerative tourism development, adopting 100% renewable energy at our flagship destination, The Red Sea, and working towards the achievement of a 30% net conservation benefit by 2040.
“Zain KSA has demonstrated a deep understanding of our requirements and has provided us with the services and solutions necessary to achieve our strategic objectives.”
The project has three primary goals: preserving the environment, reducing emissions by using renewable energy and mitigating visual distortion.
Inspired by the surrounding rock formations, the towers have been designed to blend in with The Red Sea’s landscape, ensuring minimal visual impact and safeguarding the project's environmental integrity.
Due to open to its first guests later this year, The Red Sea will comprise 50 resorts, offering up to 8,000 hotel rooms and more than 1,000 residential properties across 22 islands and six inland sites, once completed.
