Salaam Street and Tunnel wins project of the year at Middle East Electricity awards
Abu Dhabi Municipality and Ruud Lighting recognised by industry peers for excellence in energy sector
Dubai, UAE, 8 February 2012: Abu Dhabi Municipality and Ruud Lighting Arabia were the standout winners at the Middle East Electricity Awards, taking home the Project of the Year Award for their joint collaboration on the Salaam Street and Tunnel project in the UAE capital.
Contested by 29 departments, teams and organisations across six different categories, the awards were a new addition to Middle East Electricity, which opened yesterday (7 February) at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, and concludes tomorrow (9 February).
Ruud Lighting Arabia supplied the municipality with 5,016 interior zone LED luminaires which were installed along the 2.6km Salaam Street Tunnel to replace existing High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lights. The new fixtures reduce energy consumption by 60 per cent and deliver 80,000 of burning hours compared to 10,000 burning hours of the incumbent HPS fixtures.
CIMCON's LightingGale is an automated, intelligent street light management system that automatically adjusts lighting for traditional and LED lights where and when it is needed, thereby reducing carbon dioxide emissions by up to 30 per cent and saving 50 per cent on maintenance costs.
"It is an opportunity to showcase what is going on and how latest technologies are being implemented to meet the ever-increasing demands for excellence within the power community, both from a provider as well as a consumer perspective. The quality of entrants this year was equally as diverse as they were excellent."
