As an accredited ESCO company with Regulatory & Supervisory Bureau (RSB) for electricity and water in Dubai, Sharaf Electronics is tasked to complete the project within a year and a half. With over 8,500 outdoor lights, including high mast lighting and 7,000 indoor lights, latest lighting technologies from Europole and Sylvania will make Dubai Airport a front runner in energy efficient lighting in the world.
