UAE opens lighting PPP tender

The United Arab Emirates' Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI) has released a request for prequalification (RFPQ) on its federal road street lighting PPP.

Under the plans, private partners will design, build, finance, operate and maintain over 850km of federal road lighting network, with around 30,000 lights needing to be retrofitted with more energy efficient equipment.

The upgrades will take an estimated 18 months to complete. The PPP contract will last a total of 10 years.

Earlier this year, UAE announced plans to issue a new PPP law to encourage private sector-led developments. To read more about the UAE’s PPP potential, click here.
