MAF Dalkia wins contract with Dubai International
MAF Dalkia to advise DIA on sustainable energy management strategies
MAF Dalkia has won a contract with Dubai International Airport (DIA) to provide consultation on energy management and conservation strategies across all its key facilities.
Under the terms of the contract, MAF Dalkia will first perform a detailed energy audit and analysis for all of Dubai International Airport’s facilities including all three terminals and concourse areas, the cargo terminal, central utility centres and IT & engineering service buildings.
The second phase of the project will involve the execution of these energy conservation measures, and on-going project management to ensure its sustainability.
“MAF Dalkia is pleased to be working with the Dubai International Airport on how to enhance their energy conservation measures across their world-class facilities”, said Alexandre Mussallam, CEO, MAF Dalkia.
“As one of the busiest consumer and trade airports in the world, Dubai International Airport has taken an important stride in ensuring the long-term sustainability of its operations,” he said.
Dubai International Airport is the fourth busiest airport in the world, receiving more than 60 million passengers each year and transporting more than 2.5 million tonnes of cargo annually.
MAF Dalkia’s contract will oversee 12 facilities of the airport, which comprise a total area of 2 million m2.
The new contract will allow MAF Dalkia to build on its aviation expertise, given its current work with Sharjah International Airport and a recent contract with the Abu Dhabi Aviation Authority.
“MAF Dalkia is committed to support the UAE’s vision to reduce the ecological footprint of our building environment by 2015, and to continue with such iconic landmarks such as the Dubai International Airport which supports sustainability aims behind Expo 2020,” Mussallam said.
