According to foreign media reports, Etihad ESCO announced that it has signed an agreement with Sharaf Electronics to implement lighting renovation projects at three terminals of Dubai International Airport.
The project will replace more than 15,000 outdoor and indoor lights with the latest energy-saving LED lights, and is expected to save the airport approximately DM 4 million (approximately RMB 9.37 million) per year over the next seven years.
The statement said that Sharaf Electronics’ mission was to complete the project within a year and a half.
With more than 8,500 outdoor lights (including high-beam lighting) and 7,000 interior lights, the new lighting technology from Europole and Sylvania will make Dubai Airport a global leader in energy-efficient lighting.
Ali Al Jassim, CEO of Etihad ESCO, said: “The project will make Dubai International Airport a leading example of energy efficiency in the UAE.”
Nilesh Khalkho, CEO of Sharaf Electronics added: “This is a key project for us… I hope we can continue to implement more projects in the future.”
Renovating existing conventional lighting in buildings with LED lights can save more than 40-50% of energy.
