The Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) will begin on the Abu Dhabi Lighting project in the first quarter of next year. 

Starting Q1 2018, the agency will replace existing conventional lights with LED units across the emirate. 

Project completion is expected within an 18-month period, and its operational duration is 10 years. 

ADM, its consultants, Parsons, and the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC), held a workshop this September outlining the requirements of the project, which will be rolled out as public-private partnership (PPP) development. 

Tenders for the Abu Dhabi Island Lighting System project will be released later this year. 

QCC's certificate for street lighting is a part of the requirements for tenders related to the Abu Dhabi Lighting Project. 

In a statement, ADM said it is "keen to partner" with companies, consortiums, and specialised associations and institutions in Abu Dhabi. 

These partners would be involved with the supply, installation, operation, maintenance, and financing aspects of the project, which includes up to 43,000 units. 

Similar services would also be provided by the partners for a smart central control system related to the lighting units, which will be delivered to ADM following the completion of the installation and operation period. 

The project is expected to boost energy efficiency in the UAE capital, as well as further national policies aimed at increasing private sector involvement in infrastructure projects, ADM's statement added.
