Abu Dhabi to replace existing street lights with LEDs

ABU DHABI 29 August 2017: The Abu Dhabi City Municipality will soon replace the existing lighting system in Abu Dhabi with LED lights.

The step is part of the municipality’s efforts to reduce energy consumption, achieve sustainable development standards and conserve energy, said Wam.

To this effect, the civic body will hold an induction workshop for companies specialised in lighting on 10th and 11th, September 2017, in Abu Dhabi. Special focus will be placed on the flagship project in Abu Dhabi Island to be tendered later this year.

The municipality expressed its keen attention to involve companies, consortiums, professional associations and licensed institutions to be established in the emirate of Abu Dhabi to supply, install, operate, maintain and finance approximately 43,000 LED Luminaires as a flagship project. The scope of work will also include the design, supply, installation and financing a smart central control system for the new lighting units to be delivered to the Municipality upon completion of installation and operation.
