Huawei ties-up with Textile Today as an Innovation Associate

The world’s top innovative company aims to ease energy crisis with intelligent power solutions in textile industry

Getting a constant energy supply is one of the biggest challenges at the present time. As the world’s politics is getting heated up – the demand for continuous energy supply is ever more vulnerable. In such a reality, along with the global textile and apparel industry (T&A) – Bangladesh’s T&A industry operations i.e. spinning, weaving, dyeing and garmenting have also fell victim to it and are not gaining the right momentum.

In this critical scenario, solar power has emerged as the alternative solution for energy and electricity for sustainable textile operations. To generate renewable energy, Huawei Technologies – a global leading provider of information and communications technology (ICT), solar tech, infrastructure and smart devices – has been working in Bangladesh for the last 24 years.

Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited has become more noteworthy than ever to move towards alternative energy sources and focus on green energy options like solar panels to move the country towards de-carbonization. Holistically, Huawei has been doing exceptionally well in the de-carbonization and digitalization of energy with an intelligent power solution for the industry.

Realizing this, Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited has come forward to bring innovative and alternative energy sources to the textile and apparel industry jointly with Textile Today Innovation Hub (TTIH) one of the ‘Textile Today Platinum Associates’.

On 18 December 2022, Liang Weixing (Jack), Managing Director, Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited and Tareq Amin, Founder & CEO, Textile Today signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on behalf of the respective companies.

Huawei’s Fusion Solar will provide new generation string inverters with smart management technology to create a fully digitalized Smart PV Solution.

Liang Weixing (Jack) said, “We are very happy to sign an MoU with Textile Today and in the future, we will cooperate together to aid the textile and apparel industry to be more capable in renewable power. For the Bangladesh market, in terms of renewable energy, solar power has the most potential. Also, solar energy has a very bright prospect in Bangladesh.”

“As you know that the global energy price and sourcing situation has changed. And renewable energy has become a necessary alternative in Bangladesh. That is why Huawei is helping Bangladesh’s govt. and the industries to get more green power. Which will also improve the environment.”

“We hope that with Textile Today we will be able to provide more training and awareness/benefits regarding renewable power among the textile and apparel industry people. And I hope we will achieve the target very soon.”

Md. Eousup Novee, GM-Innovation & Strategy, TTIH said, “At present, the whole world is going through a power crisis. So, what are the available alternative energy options – we have seen that in Bangladesh’s case – biomass or geothermal option is not feasible. Neither have we seen mentionable progress in the wind or hydropower sector.”

“Among the 22000 MW electricity generation in Bangladesh, only 2% comes from renewable energy sources. And solar holds only 1% share.”

“We say that innovativeness is the new competitiveness in the Bangladesh textile and apparel industry. Huawei, in particular, has long been working globally and in Bangladesh in an innovative way,” Md. Eousup Novee added.

“Huawei has countless innovative solutions. The company wonderfully captures the photovoltaic electric effects of sunlight. And with this, Huawei caters, transmits and distributes the power for industrial usage and integrates into the national grid.”

“Being an Innovation Hub – Textile Today has been continuously working with innovative solution-providing companies. And Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited is one of the most innovative companies globally – we are excited to work with Huawei. Together, we can bring a real change in the textile and apparel industry – in a more innovative way. Most importantly, in Bangladesh, one of the main challenges is the lack of data. Here Huawei and Textile Today can jointly overcome the challenge.” Md. Eousup Novee concluded.

Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited has been providing solar rooftop new generation string inverters with smart management technology to create a fully digitalized Smart PV Solution.

Huawei’s solutions make any PV power plant run more efficiently and through better intelligence, in addition, easy maintenance makes Huawei utility-scale PV power generation the best choice for Bangladesh.

In terms of rooftop solar safety, which is the most important aspect – Because there are many instances of fire cases globally – Huawei Technologies prioritizes rooftop solar safety.

Huawei provides enhanced intelligence for PV systems through inverters and management systems and has made the technology much safer. For instance, Huawei has developed an AI function that monitors and detects ‘arc faults’ to protect against sparks that could cause a fire: In less than 0.5 seconds, the system is shut down to protect the PV system from fire hazards – this makes our arc[1]fault circuit interrupters (AFCI) more than 2 seconds faster than the industry standard.

Huawei has brought this AFCI technology to the Bangladesh market to keep our solar solutions free of fire hazards.

At the signing ceremony Marzia Tabassum Prithy, Business Department, Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited; Amzad Hossain Monir, Head of Business Development; Sayed Abdullah, Sub-Editor, Textile Today were also present at the event.

By partnering with Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited, the ‘Textile Today Innovation Hub’ will expand to a larger scale in the alternative renewable energy transformation. And through this collaboration, the textile and apparel industry will be able to generate more awareness regarding the benefits of renewable power.

Textile Today is acting as an effective and efficient innovation hub’, which regularly supports, facilitates, innovates, and enhances factory suppliers, suppliers, professionals, apprentices, etc. factory suppliers, suppliers, professionals, learning, etc. The ‘Innovation Hub’ platform works more effectively to enable partners to place the platform’s knowledge, communication, and networking leverage on the market as their innovation-driven business.
