Sharaf DG Energy has successfully completed a lighting retrofit project at Drydocks World-Dubai, with the aim of deploying energy saving measures and tackling the pressure on natural resources.
The project is expected to result in annual savings of $164,000 for three years and involved replacing 5,500 fluorescent, metal halide and conventional lights with high efficient LED fixtures.
The project was implemented on five buildings and three mess, workshops, camp streets, which are mainly used for the Junior Staff Accommodations of the shipyard.
Retrofitting, a measure taken to replace conventional light fittings and accessories with new energy saving LED lights, is a key component in helping the UAE achieve their sustainable related targets.
With the help of the latest technologies, commercial and industrial sectors can now receive a number of benefits. Advantages include the reduction of energy consumption and carbon emissions, productivity enhancement, a decreased amount of maintenance expenditure and the ability to ensure more safety measures are in place for workers.
This project heavily supports Drydocks’ green efforts and offers sustainable solutions through the adoption of modern LED energy saving technologies. This project that will result in an annual energy saving of 1,215,708 kWh.
The organisation says it augmented the plan in a record timeframe and overachieved with the annual savings against proposed savings.
