The organization has also released a promotional animation video in which a huge flat-topped iceberg is being towed across 10,000 km to the UAE.

According to the video, the massive icebergs will first be brought to the UAE and then converted into billions of liters of fresh water. Upon reaching the Fujairah port, the iceberg will be unloaded at a water-processing port.



According to the company, the event can also double the tourist attraction of Fujairah by attracting many people to its coast. The animation also shows penguins and polar bears standing on the iceberg; however, there are no polar bears in Antarctica.

 

An iceberg containing 20 billion gallons of fresh water is sufficient to meet the water needs of 1 million people for 5 years. One of the top ten water-stressed countries of the world, the UAE hopes to mitigate its problem of water scarcity with this move. The millions of gallons of fresh water obtained from an iceberg will also help to restore the lost greenery of the desert land.

Have a look at the promotional video by The National Advisor Bureau Limited:
