Enpark installs solar street lamp at DMC
Dubai, March 3, 2009
The Energy and Environment Park (Enpark) said it has successfully installed Streetsun, a solar-powered street lamp within Dubai Media City (DMC) in collaboration with Dubai-based Zala Energy and Germany-based Ralos.
Enpark, a member of Tecom Investments, is a free zone spanning over 8 million sq ft of office, research centre, residential, educational and leisure facilities located in Dubai.
A special destination for clean energy and environmental technology companies, Enpark, is a sustainable community model for commercial and residential use, said a statement from Enpark.
The four-metre high solar lamp is located at the DMC parking lot behind Building No. 1 (Reuters Building) and includes a solar array that harnesses the power of the sun to provide lighting to an area of 25 meters in diameter, it added.
The solar-powered light can be installed independently and economically, saving power costs and offering pollution-free energy.
Installed with the help of a specially-developed foundation system without intensive trench work or digging, the solar street lamp requires no maintenance for at least six years.
It is additionally equipped with the capacity to keep sunlight-induced energy in reserve for ensuring availability of night time light even during successive days of poor light, the statement said.-TradeArabia News Service
