Etihad ESCO and Sharaf Electronics to retrofit DXB terminals

dxb 16mEtihad ESCO has signed an agreement with Sharaf Electronics LLC to implement lighting retrofit project at three terminals of Dubai International Airport (DXB)

In line with DXB’s vision of environmental sustainability, the project is expected to replace more than 15,000 outdoor and indoor lights with energy-saving LED lights, resulting in about US$1.36mn annual savings every year, for next seven years for the airport.

With more than 8,500 outdoor lights including high-mast lighting and 7,000 indoor lights, lighting technologies from Europole and Sylvania are set to make DXB one of the leading energy efficient airports in the world.

According to Etihad ESCO, retrofitting 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, allow achieving significant energy savings.

Ali Al Jassim, CEO at Etihad ESCO, said, “To begin with, putting together the project in place was a challenge, as not only had the lights to meet DXB’s highest quality standards, but also must guarantee long-term high energy savings.”

Etihad ESCO aims to create a viable performance contracting market for energy service companies by auditing and proposing energy conservation measures to major building contractors and developers.
