Facilities manager Emrill has signed a deal worth $27.2m to install a new carbon monitoring system into 800 buildings under its control.
The Carbon Control Centre technology, developed by Irish-headquartered engineering firm Crowley Carbon, will monitor energy usage within the buildings from its Irish HQ in Enniskerry. However, the company is also planning to open a Dubai office this year.
The announcement was made during the recent Enterprise Ireland trade visit to the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
CEO Norman Crowley said: "We are delighted that Dubai is embracing the significant financial and environmental opportunities offered by proactively engaging with the area of energy efficiency."
Irish Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton TD said: "I am delighted to welcome this announcement from Crowley Carbon that it has signed a major contract and is opening an office in Dubai."
Emrill is a joint venture between Dubai-based Al Futtaim Group, Emaar Properties and UK contractor Carillion.
