The energy division of the Doleh family office from Dubai and Quimera Energy Ltd from the UK agreed to invest in a new company – Quimera Energy Facilities Management LLC.
Quimera Energy LLC, based in Dubai, will utilise its proven expertise in delivering Energy Efficiency Solutions within the Gulf Region.
