GE to showcase latest in roadway lighting
Doha, March 11, 2012
GE Lighting will showcase its latest trends in roadway lighting at the second Annual Road Planning, Design & Construction Summit, set to be held in Doha this month.
The lighting is aimed at improving visual conditions, enhancing safety and reducing energy use, a statement from GE said.
The roadway lighting solutions can potentially save about 60 per cent of energy use, compared with conventional lighting, the statement said.
Diederik de Stoppelaar, Luminaire Solutions business director, GE Lighting, EMEA, said: “GE Lighting is a thought leader in the lighting and luminaire sector, underlined by our focus on research and development to boost energy efficiency across the entire spectrum of applications for residential, commercial and industrial uses.”
“With ongoing road projects valued at QR14.3 billion ($3.9 billion) in addition to developments of QR211 billion ($57.9 billion) across the GCC region, and investments of QR45 billion ($12.3 billion) in improving and creating road networks in Qatar alone, there is enormous potential for partnerships in roadway lighting in the region. Our roadway lighting brings the triple advantage of energy use efficiency, safety and enhanced visibility,” he said.
“Through the support and partnership to the event, GE is looking at opportunities to strengthen its partnerships with the concerned authorities in the GCC region by supporting them in their quest for safer, environmental friendly roadways,” Stoppelaar added.
In the UAE, GE Lighting has been associated with several key initiatives including a significant share of roadway lighting in Abu Dhabi, as well as lighting solutions for landmark projects across the region.
The company’s stand at the Road Planning, Design & Construction Summit will be at the Oryx Rotana, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
