Dubai financial district looking to replace 27,000 lights

The Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the city’s financial and business hub, is looking for suppliers to replace 27,000 lights with energy-saving alternatives.

The project, which is being handled by the government-owned energy services organisation Etihad Esco, will cover offices in 15 buildings in the business district, as well as architectural lighting, outdoor areas and streetlighting.

Etihad Esco sought expressions of interest from energy services companies (Escos) and consortiums who could provide ‘design, implementation, savings guarantee, service, measurement and verification of comprehensive lighting energy efficiency measures’.

Those who expressed interest are going through a pre-qualification process.

DIFC is a 110-acre area in central Dubai, established as a free zone in 2004 with its own civil and commercial laws, and used as a base in the region by 22 of the world’s top 30 banks, six of the top 10 insurers and seven of the top 10 law firms.

Etihad Esco's project with DIFC follows a $10 million deal that it recently signed with Dubai’s electricity and water authority to implement energy-saving measures at power stations and office buildings. The majority of the money is being spent on new LED lights from Philips, with the aim of reducing energy use for lighting by 68 per cent.

Etihad Esco’s CEO Stephane Le Gentil told Lux that the organisation wants to kick-start the market for energy service contracting in the UAE and the rest of the Middle East. ‘The market was really non-existent,’ he said. ‘So we’re creating it,’ he said.

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: Urgentspellcast@gmail.com or Urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109 also view his blog: https://urgentpowerfullovespell.blogspot.com/
