DUBAI, March 18, 2018

Ireland-based Eaton, a multinational power management company, has been awarded a $1.3-million order to provide complete low-voltage switchgear systems for the ICD Brookfield Place Tower in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), UAE.

It will also contain 1,672-sq-m public area flanked by restaurants that will feature regular arts and cultural events, and the complex will have parking for 2,700 cars, said a statement.

Eaton’s complete low-voltage switchgear systems up to 5000A, will increase electrical safety and support reliable distribution of power, improve control and more efficient operation for the world-class complex, it said.

The solutions that are set to be installed in ICD Brookfield Palace Tower are compact and energy-efficient, ideal for high-rise buildings, it added.
