Working in collaboration CU Phosco Lighting, SEWA delivered a well-structured and smooth transition of change with little to no disruption to local residents. Striving to improve our customers experience and responding to feedback is a key part of the collaboration process. This project is a testament to the value that working partnerships can provide. CU Phosco Lighting look forward to working with SEWA on future projects to continue to provide the latest technology to the residents of Sharjah.
Street lighting is one of the main focuses in Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA). The use of LED streetlights is growing continuously due to their greater energy efficiency, robustness, long life and light control. In addition, the vision of His Highness Sheikh Sultan Al-Qassimi the ruler of Sharjah, is to make Sharjah the city of conservation so energy saving, and retrofitting is a top priority. Hence SEWA planned to start changing from Sodium street lighting to energy efficient LED lights. The goal is to improve the level and quality of road lighting by implementing LED technology, in order to save energy, reduce maintenance cost also to offer customers better lighting quality with suitable color selection.
The starting point of this project was assigning two residential areas (Al Tarfa and Al Darari), surveying the existing lights, measuring distances and calculating lux levels. Project awarded to Cu-Phosco and the streetlights order was placed. For quality assurance and auditing purpose, three engineers from SEWA were involved to inspect the manufacturing process for the patch by checking mechanical, electrical soldering and fixing LED chips. After the supply and installation, site inspection completed, and the new lux levels were measured. The results showed great improvement and energy saving. It was noticeable that after retrofitting to the new efficient LEDs more than 80% of the houses outdoor lighting were switched off which also helped in reducing the energy consumption.
“My experience in working with CU Phosco was very positive. Their professionalism was refreshing. And I as part from SEWA lighting team, would welcome the opportunity to work with them again”.
“Working with Cu Phosco was a pleasure. They did a great job of supplying and installing LED streetlights in Al Tarfa and Al Darari. We look forward to work in future projects with them”.
“The impact of retrofitting Al Tarfa & Al Darari Area’s was very positive on the society of both neighborhoods. With the support of CU Phosco, we were able to deliver those results”.
