Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi has col­lab­o­rated with Tesla and in­stalled two state-of-the-art charg­ing sta­tions in its base­ment park­ing area. Each Tesla con­nec­tor is equipped with a power out­put of up to 13KW.

The com­pli­men­tary fa­cil­ity is avail­able to ho­tel res­i­dent guests. Des­mond Hat­ton, gen­eral man­ager, Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi said: “The new green ini­tia­tive with Tesla aims at re­duc­ing our car­bon foot­print.

“It’s just a small drop in the ocean but it sets the tone for the in­dus­try to in­no­vate and adopt en­vi­ron­ment friendly mea­sures. It is en­cour­ag­ing to see that num­ber of guests us­ing this fa­cil­ity has in­creased since in­stal­la­tion of charg­ing points.”

Dusit Thani joins a hand­ful of ho­tels in the UAE that’s mak­ing a push to­wards adding EV charg­ing sta­tions at its fa­cil­i­ties. In Fe­bru­ary this year, Green Park­ing tied up with ho­tels and re­sorts at key lo­ca­tions in the UAE and Oman, in­clud­ing Danat Al Ain Re­sort, which is the only charg­ing point be­tween Abu Dhabi and So­har.

Al­though not a Tesla-spec con­nec­tor, Green Park­ing in­stalled more than 200 elec­tric ve­hi­cle (EV) charg­ing points the UAE and Oman, in­di­cat­ing the grow­ing de­mand from the pub­lic for EV charg­ers.

The Abu Dhabi ho­tel has in­stalled two Tesla charg­ers in the car park.
