A Delmatic lighting control system has been installed in The Princess Tower in Dubai to manage and monitor lighting throughout the public areas, using occupancy-based control to reduce energy consumption.
According to Guinness World Records, at a height of 414m and 107 floors, the Princess Tower is the tallest residential skyscraper in the world. The Princess Tower is located in the marina area, known to be one of the most exclusive and prestigious areas in Dubai and within walking distance of 5-star hotels, beach and the best entertainment venues that Dubai has to offer. Residents will enjoy either the sweeping views of the Arabian Gulf, the Palm Island, Jumeirah or Dubai Marina. The tower comprises 763 luxury apartments, duplex units and penthouses, as well as sports and recreational facilities including gymnasiums and swimming pools.
The Delmatic system controls the lighting using twelve modules, as well as the Delmatic Multisensor which provides very discreet presence detection. As a result, the Delmatic system is able to very closely relate lighting and lighting levels to occupation and use of public areas, providing both energy efficiency and sustainability benefits.
A major factor in the choice of Delmatic systems for the project was the company’s commitment to openness and the use of the international standard protocols. In the case of The Princess Tower, the system uses the Lon protocol, though Delmatic systems are also compatible with DALI and IP protocols. In addition, Delmatic has had considerable experience of applying these technologies in interactive solutions for some of the world’s largest buildings such as The Shard. The system includes future-proofing, and is designed for long and reliable operation to provide sustainability in the medium and long term.
