- Paves the way for AssetCare to support the digitalization and ESG objectives of Saudi Vision 2030, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's national economic action plan
CALGARY, AB, July 13, 2021 /CNW/ - mCloud Technologies Corp. (TSXV: MCLD) (OTCQB: MCLDF) ("mCloud" or the "Company"), a leading provider of AI-powered asset management and Environmental, Social, and Governance ("ESG") solutions today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with URBSOFT, a strategic provider of advanced ground and aerial inspection technology solutions supporting the Saudi Vision 2030 initiative in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its transformative industrial and urban programs.
The MOU partners mCloud with URBSOFT to jointly take the full portfolio of AssetCare solutions to market in Saudi Arabia. Together, mCloud and URBSOFT will combine and deliver industrial visual inspection solutions using the Company's 3D capabilities and URBSOFT's advanced GIS and GPS technologies to major oil and gas, petrochemical, and process industry sites. Both companies will also drive the adoption of AssetCare smart building solutions in tandem with URBSOFT's urban technology portfolio across numerous prominent Saudi building initiatives and the Kingdom's retail sector.
mCloud expects this partnership to fuel major growth for its regional business in the Middle East, with URBSOFT well-positioned to lead regional sales, broker strategic relationships, and implement AssetCare across the Kingdom. URBSOFT is principal advisor to the Saudi Government for Saudi Vision 2030, a national economic action plan including major multi-billion dollar investments in the adoption of new technologies for industrial development, logistics, and smart city transformation.
In this role, URBSOFT and its leadership maintain pivotal ties to the largest oil and gas, petrochemical, and building developers and operators in Saudi Arabia. Through URBSOFT and Saudi Vision 2030, the Kingdom is positioned to lead the adoption of ESG and digitalization solutions in these sectors.
Russ McMeekin, mCloud President and CEO said: "During my recent trip to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, I was amazed by the degree to which digital technologies have been integrated into every aspect of life in the Kingdom. While there, I had the opportunity to meet many industry leaders eager to accelerate the digital transformation and decarbonization of their businesses. I also met with numerous building operators seeking the best technologies to reduce their carbon footprint and improve indoor air quality. Our partnership with URBSOFT makes AssetCare the Kingdom's ESG technology solution of choice. Put simply, mCloud is now open for business in Saudi Arabia."
"In partnership with mCloud, URBSOFT has already begun to introduce mCloud and AssetCare to notable industrial players including Saudi Aramco, SABIC, and Sipchem," said Dr. Ahmed Alkadi, URBSOFT CEO. "We believe mCloud's technology will play a key role for the Kingdom in achieving its goal of reducing GHG emissions and energy consumption in the Saudi petrochemical industry and around the world."
"We are also engaging our urban technology network, which includes the King Abdullah Financial District, NEOM, the Red Sea Project, AMAALA, and more to create an ecosystem where AssetCare can play a role in helping urban innovations flourish," Dr. Alkadi added.
