Abu Dhabi Municipality has retrofitted more than 4,000 streetlights as part of an extensive replacement programme. 

The Emirate is seeking to replace a total of 43,000 streetlights with energy-efficient LED lights.


The contract is a 12-year design, build, finance, operate and maintain concession agreement following a competitive tender process facilitated by the Abu Dhabi Investment Office.

The concession will target specific requirements and energy saving targets, including operating and maintaining the new devices, and installing and maintaining a smart central system to control the lighting throughout the agreement period.

This first round of retrofitting covers Sheikh Zayed Road, Arabian Gulf Street, Al-Maqta, Al-Khatim, and the Musaffah Al-Shaabiya areas, as well as under the bridges on the Abu Dhabi Saadiyat Road.

Works cost $3million and contribute to an 80% reduction in annual energy consumption.
