Stamps on Key Strategic Projects
Abu Dhabi - WAM

Emirates Post Group has issued a set of commemorative stamps on Key Strategic Projects of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The stamps showcase four major projects of the UAE: Etihad Rail, Masdar City, Shams 1 Solar Power Plant and Khalifa Port.

"Emirates Post Group is honoured to issue these stamps that celebrate four of the most significant projects undertaken by the UAE under the vision of the President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan," said Ibrahim bin Karam, Chief Commercial Officer, EPG. "Each of these projects has a strong historical significance and herald a big leap for the UAE in four different fields. We are pleased to preserve these projects for posterity through these stamps that will carry their legacy to the whole world."

Etihad Rail was formed with a mandate to manage the development, construction and operation of the UAE's national railway, which will link the main centres of population and industry of the UAE, and will form a vital part of the planned GCC railway network. The development of the Etihad Rail network is in line with both the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 and UAE Vision 2021.

Masdar City is a sustainable, low-carbon urban development and free zone offering a high-quality lifestyle where people live, work, play and learn. A growing education hub, Masdar City is home to Masdar Institute for Science and Technology, a research-based graduate university. Over 250 companies are located in Masdar City, including the Middle East headquarters of Siemens, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) headquarters and offices of multinational firms, including GE, Schneider Electric and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

Shams 1 Solar Power Plant is the largest Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant in the Middle East and was developed by Masdar, Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company. Masdar partnered with Total and Abengoa to deliver the 100-megawatt solar-thermal project. The US $600 million project took three years to build and covers an area of 2.5 km, or 285 football fields. Shams 1 generates electricity to power 20,000 homes in the UAE and contributes to the diversification of the UAE's energy mix reducing the country's carbon footprint.

Khalifa Port is managed by Abu Dhabi Ports, the master-developer, manager and operator of nine commercial, logistics, community and leisure ports. Khalifa Port includes the first semi-automated container terminal in the region and handles all of Abu Dhabi's container traffic. In its current phase, Khalifa Port's annual capacity is 2.5 million TEU containers and 12 million tonnes of general cargo. The adjacent Khalifa Industrial Zone (Kizad) is Khalifa Port's dedicated trade and logistics hub, serving a range of logistics and manufacturing investors.

The stamps have been issued in a single denomination of Dh 1, in four different designs. They are available in all post offices in sheets of 16 stamps. Also issued along with the stamp is the First Day Cover priced at Dh 5.
