Etihad Esco to float tenders for Dubai mosques retrofit

DUBAI, March 14, 2017

Etihad Esco, the leading energy management services provider, will soon float a tender seeking energy efficiency and water saving solutions for 650 facilities under Dubai’s Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department.

The tender will include retrofit of facilities including mosques, office buildings and imam’s residences, said a statement from Etihad Esco.

Etihad Esco had recently signed a service agreement with the Islamic Affairs Department under which it will provide flexible finance solution to the Islamic Affairs Department.

The agreement not only covers measures to save electricity and solar photovoltaic (PV) installation but also provision of sustainable water saving solutions, due to the nature of the facilities.

“The retrofit service will offer a range of solutions that will make Islamic Affairs’ facilities across the emirate eco-friendlier. Taking into consideration resource usage in these buildings, we are focusing on installing water saving technologies, as well as energy solutions like solar PV,” remarked Ali Al Jassim, CEO, Etihad Esco.

Speaking on the social importance of the agreement, Al Jassim said mosques play a key role in creating and increasing awareness among residents and visitors, since they welcome thousands of believers every week.

"The energy efficiency initiative at these facilities will have a positive effect on the visitors, and will encourage believers to implement energy conservation measures at their homes and offices. This ripple effect will eventually result in Dubai being a sustainable city with an environmentally-conscious population," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
