Dubai Municipality has signed two partnership agreements for the use of Dubai Lamp in future projects.
Under the agreement, the Dubai Lamp will be used in the Mohammed Bin Rashid Housing Establishment (MRHE) and Azizi Developments.
The signing ceremony was carried out in the presence of Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality.
Khalid Sharif Al Awadhi, assistant director general for environment, health and safety sector signed the agreement on behalf of the municipality while Sami Abdullah Gargash, executive director represented MRHE and Fouad Azizi, deputy general manager, signed on behalf of Azizi.
As per the agreement, the municipality will give MRHE 100,000 Dubai Lamps to support its building projects for UAE citizens.
The agreement also aims to build a relationship between the two parties in the field of energy conservation through the installation of Dubai lamp, which reduces electricity consumption by 90% compared to traditional lamps and has a life span between 15,000 to 25,000 hours.
The agreement stipulates that the municipality will provide MRHE with the lamps for installation according to the projects’ expected completion during the period of the agreement.
The cost of installation shall be borne by MRHE.
The four year agreement signed with Azizi Development will see the developer use the Dubai Lamp in a number of its existing and new projects which will reflect positively on energy saving for longer periods and significantly lower costs in energy conservation.
