Dubai, October 20, 2007
LG Electronics has won a prestigious contract to cool 815 bus shelters in Dubai at an estimated value of Dh5.5 million ($1.4 million). As per the contract, LG will provide its proven air-conditioning solutions to ensure greater passenger comfort.
Expected to be completed by the end of 2007, the project will provide cooling through ceiling-concealed duct air conditioners that are designed specifically for 800 bus shelters in Dubai, said a LG official.
The contract includes the supply-cum-installation of air conditioners to all the shelters on turnkey basis. LG is not only being awarded to install the units but also to maintain the same during the due course of time.
"LG Electronics has maintained its leadership position in the international air-conditioning industry for a consecutive seven years and the latest development represents an important opportunity to showcase our contribution to the landmark projects in the world," said president of LG Electronics, Middle East and Africa, K W Kim.
"This project underlines the level of confidence shown by the client in LG air conditioners which is the result of our important installation references and our commitment to innovative and cutting-edge technology to the region. We hope to continue our efforts in providing the people of the UAE with the very best that technology can offer," he added.
Air-conditioned bus shelters have already been installed at some of the most prominent locations in Dubai, including the completed Sufouh Road (behind Dubai Media City), Al Barsha and other neighbouring areas.- TradeArabia News Service
