Shed some light

A contract for the lighting control systems for the seven star Conference Palace Hotel complex currently under construction in Abu Dhabi has been won by Polaron Controls. Worth approximately £1 million, the contract for the hotel’s public areas and suites includes the supply and installation of 2,350 remote control plates and more than 16,000 dimmable lighting channels, as well as a central computer system.

The company has previously supplied the complete lighting control system for the region’s only other seven star hotel, the world famous Burj Al Arab in Dubai.

The system will use Polaron’s latest Lightlink dimmer modules to control a wide range of light sources, and will interface directly with the building management system. It will also seamlessly control a wide range of other equipment from various suppliers.

Set in an 84-hectare beachfront park, the 850,000-square-metre complex consists of a spectacular central palace for visiting dignitaries, the region’s largest conference facilities and a prestige hotel with over 300 luxurious guest rooms and suites.
