Imdaad has announced a new partnership with the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Sports Complex.

The integrated FM company will, through its Imdaad Power division, provide for the temporary power needs of the 2014 FIBA (Fédération Internationale de Basket-ball) Under-17 World Championship for Men basketball tournament, which will be held at the arena from August 8-16, 2014.

Imdaad Power will provide power generators to meet the temporary electricity requirements of the prestigious international junior basketball competition, whose preliminary rounds will take place at Al Ahli Arena and Al-Wasl Arena and the final round at the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Sports Complex.

“The upcoming FIBA championship marks another fruitful partnership between our company and Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Sports Complex,” said Jamal Lootah, CEO, Imdaad. “Just like in the previous sports contests, we assure that Imdaad Power can be relied upon in terms of providing FIBA’s specific electricity needs.”

“This will eliminate any risk of power interruptions, thus contributing to the overall success of the competition,” Lootah said. “As a major sponsor of the event, we are doubly excited to be part of this year’s junior basketball event because this is the first time that a FIBA World Championship - senior or junior - will be staged in the Middle East. Indeed, this makes the tournament a momentous occasion for the UAE.”

Imdaad Power, which aims to address the temporary power needs of projects and industries in the GCC, has power generators of various sizes and capacity from small diesel units to big containerised power units starting with 300Kva to 1250Kva.

This is not the first time that Imdaad Power has extended reliable power generation services to major global sporting events held at Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Sports Complex, which is a state-of-the-art, 15,000-seater indoor sporting facility in Dubai.

They had earlier collaborated for the successful holding of FINA Men’s Water Polo League Super Final in June of this year, the 4th FINA World Junior Swimming Championships in 2013, and the 9th Asian Swimming Championships and the Dubai Swimming World Cup in 2012.
