19 Aug 2021

The Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), in collaboration with the Department of Municipal and Transport (DMT), has pre-qualified nine companies for Phase 2 of its Road Lighting LED public-private partnership (PPP) project tender.

The project, which forms part of the Abu Dhabi Road Lighting Programme, includes the finance, supply, installation, operation and maintenance of 135,742 LED energy-efficient luminaires in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. It will result in significant electricity savings of almost 2,400 million kWh, equivalent to a reduction of approximately 76 percent in power consumption, over the 12-year concession period.

The project is being procured in accordance with the PPP Law, ADIO’s Partnership Projects Guidebook and its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Policy.

ADIO has now concluded its bid evaluation process as part of the Request for Qualification (RfQ) phase and has pre-qualified the following companies: CRCCI (China Railway Construction Corporation International); Dussman Gulf; DUTCO Construction; EDF (Electricite de France); EESL/Hansa Energy Solutions; Orascom; Saif Bin Darwish; Shikun and Binui; and ST Engineering.

The companies hail from eight countries, including the UAE, China, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Israel and Singapore.

Pre-qualified bidders will be invited to participate in the next stage of the procurement process and submit detailed proposals in response to a Request for Proposal (RfP).

ADIO is the central Abu Dhabi government hub managing the facilitation, development and procurement of all infrastructure projects delivered through a PPP framework in Abu Dhabi, in line with its mandate to support private sector investment in the emirate.
