MEE_2012_1Commencing today, Middle East Electricity 2012 (MEE) was officially inaugurated by Dr. Rashid Ahmed Bin Fahad, Minister of Environment and Water in the UAE.

MEE is the world's leading energy event that focuses on power, lighting, renewable, nuclear and water sectors, creating a key platform for exhibitors to impress industry professionals with their latest innovations, solutions, products and services.

Other exhibitors launching their most recent products at the show include Bahrain-based Atlas Copco, which is introducing its portable diesel driven generator sets and lighting towers; and GWB International, which is using the exhibition to officially launch in the UAE and Middle East its Cooper brand of silent generating sets.

Commenting on the growth of Middle East Electricity this year, Anita Mathews, Exhibition Director said: "The exhibitor space for Middle East Electricity 2012 has exceeded last year's occupied space by 15 per cent. We have also seen growth in exhibitor numbers and expect more than 15,000 unique visitors to attend the three-day event."

CESI, an Italian based market leader in power systems consulting and testing will be at the exhibition as it looks to further expand its business operations in the Middle East, having last month opened its first regional office in the UAE.
