Abu Dhabi to replace streetlights with LEDs

ABU DHABI, August 29, 2017

The Abu Dhabi City Municipality will soon replace the existing lighting system in the UAE capital with LED lights.

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

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

The municipality expressed its keen interest to involve companies, professional associations and licensed institutions in 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, it said.
