Power management company, Eaton, has been awarded a $1.3m (AED4.8m) order to provide complete low-voltage switchgear systems for the ICD Brookfield Place project in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) district.
The 54-storey, 282m development, worth $1bn (AED3.67bn), will contain more than 83,600m2 (900,000 ft2) of office space and a 14,000 m2 (150,000 ft2), five-storey retail centre.
It will also contain 1,672 m2 of public area flanked by restaurants, and the complex will have parking for 2,700 cars.
Eaton’s complete low-voltage switchgear systems up to 5000A, will increase electrical safety and support distribution of power, improve control and more efficient operation for the complex.
Eaton has used programming relays to achieve safe operating conditions which have reduced the hard wiring that is otherwise required to achieve the desired conditions.
“Low-voltage Switchgear Systems are integral to supporting an adaptable, secure and responsive infrastructure,” said Frank Ackland, general manager, Eaton Middle East.
“The reliability, safety and energy-efficiency of our products were fundamental in Eaton winning this contract,” he added.
Eaton’s electrical business addresses areas such as backup power protection, control and automation, lighting and security, structural solutions and wiring devices, solutions for harsh and hazardous environments and engineering services.
The ICD Brookfield Place project is expected to be completed in Q4 2018.
