Etihad ESCO signs Contracts with Sharaf Electronics to retrofit 15,000 Light Fixtures
 

The Lighting Retrofit Project to generate AED 5 million annual savings

UAE, 16 May 2019 – Etihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO) announced the signing of an agreement with Sharaf Electronics for the implementation of the lighting retrofit project at three terminals of Dubai Airport. The project will replace over 15,000 outdoor and indoor lights with latest energy saving LED lights, resulting in about AED 5 million annual savings every year, for next seven years for the airport. In addition, the project supports Dubai Airport’s vision of environmental sustainability.

As an accredited ESCO company with Regulatory & Supervisory Bureau (RSB) for electricity and water in Dubai, Sharaf Electronics is tasked to complete the project within a year and a half. With over 8,500 outdoor lights, including high mast lighting and 7,000 indoor lights, latest lighting technologies from Europole and Sylvania will make Dubai Airport a front runner in energy efficient lighting in the world.

Ali Al Jassim, CEO, Etihad ESCO, said: “To begin with, putting together the project in place was a challenge, as not only had the lights to meet Dubai Airport’s highest quality standards but also must guarantee long-term high energy savings. Sharaf Electronics team worked with several vendors to meet the exacting standards to our satisfaction. We wish them success in executing the project. The project will turn Dubai Airport into a leading model of energy efficiency in the emirate.”

Nilesh Khalkho, CEO - Sharaf Electronics, said: “It is a prestigious project for us and start of a new journey. As a local group we are committed to giving something back to the society and energy is one of the areas where we would like to contribute. In this journey forward, we will be retrofitting the leading Dubai International Airport. Hopefully we will continue this journey of executing many more projects for Etihad ESCO.”

LED is the future of lighting. Retrofitting an existing conventional lighting in a building with LED lights can result in 40-50 per cent energy savings. Smart control systems together with significantly efficient luminescent technology allows to achieve significant savings. Typical airport lighting projects are governed by strictest standards of quality and energy consumption.

Etihad ESCO is a DEWA venture that was established in 2013 to make Dubai’s built environment a leading example of energy efficiency. Etihad ESCO aims to create viable performance contracting market for energy service companies by auditing and proposing energy conservation measures to major building contractors/developers, bringing Dubai closer to the achievement of its sustainability goals.
