Dubai Investments Park completes LED streetlight retrofit project

The retrofit project is expected to save 700,000kW/h of energy per year

Dubai Investments Park (DIP) says that it has completed its LED lights retrofit project across identified areas within DIP. The move is said to highlight its commitment to providing quality infrastructure and a sustainable environment. The retrofit project is expected to save 700,000kW/h of energy per year.

According to a statement from DIP, which is wholly owned by Dubai Investments PJSC, over 1,355 sodium streetlights have been replaced with LED streetlights, which provide improved illumination and better energy efficiency, while simultaneously enhancing the visual appeal and facilitating a safe and secure environment within DIP.

“We are committed to enhancing the well-being of people and are focused on providing best in-class infrastructure facilities across DIP, and our streetlights installation project is an important aspect of the ongoing improvements. Designed to be one of the most environment-friendly developments in the region, we are mindful of complementing our initiatives towards contributing and encouraging a sustainable lifestyle. It is in line with the green vision of the UAE government, that we decided to install streetlights with LED solutions,” said Omar Al Mesmar, General Manager, Dubai Investment Park.

In late October 2022, the MoEI disclosed the pre-qualification requirements for a PPP street-lighting project and, in early November 2022, a JLL whitepaper outlined ways to decarbonise Egypt’s built environment.

With a 10-year life expectancy, providing 50,000 lighting hours per month, the LED lighting project implemented by DIP will require less maintenance and consume less electricity. The decision for the replacement was based on studies confirming steady light output at less than 1% degradation per year over the life of the equipment as compared to other conventional lights, the statement explained.

In line with the company’s infrastructure enhancement initiatives, DIP partnered with Litetech Industries LLC – a subsidiary of Dubai Investments and a pioneer in the manufacturing of lighting fixtures and eco- friendly LED fittings – to install the LED lights. With its strong track-record, the company served as an ideal partner in undertaking the project, demonstrating innovation in design and excellence in execution, the firm noted.

The LED lights implementation project is also aimed at improving safety, the firm said. As part of DIP’s macro approach in occupational health and safety, the company is committed to preventing and minimising any adverse occupational health, safety and environmental impacts, the statement concluded.

In late January 2023, the Abu Dhabi DoE inked deals with NYU Abu Dhabi to enhance energy and water sustainability.
