Sharaf DG Energy will replace 15,500 outdoor and indoor lights at the terminals with energy saving LED lights. The retrofit project will result in annual savings of $1.4m (AED5m) for seven years, according to the UAE's state news agency, Wam. The project will take 18 months to complete, and will see the replacement of 8,500 outdoor lights, including high-mast lighting, and 7,000 indoor fixtures. Lighting technology from Germany’s Sylvania and Europole will be used for the project.
Commenting on the project, chief executive officer of Etihad Esco, Ali Al Jassim, said: "To begin with, putting together the project in place was a challenge, as not only had the lights to meet Dubai Airports' highest quality standards, but also must guarantee long-term high energy savings." Al Jassim added that Sharaf DG Energy ( Electronics) had worked with several vendors to meet the project’s standards.
