BMTC is a market leader in the UAE and provides a wide range of electrical, lighting and water feature solutions to building and infrastructure projects in the country.
The lighting solution provided by BMTC includes Schreder’s state-of-the-art ModulLum multi-functional column with LED system that provides lighting with aesthetic coherence. The LED lighting system, integrated with the smart and multi-functional ModulLum, has the efficiency to provide light for longer period with lesser power consumption and lower maintenance requirements than other lighting systems available in the market.
The smart pole has multiple lighting configurations and additional features suitable for the needs in the modern urban lighting space. The versatility of the ModulLum range, with its different modules as well as variable diameters and heights, guarantees a perfect match between the column and its architectural environment. The installation is expected to enhance visitor experience to Jumeirah Corniche as well as facilitate jogging activities in the evening.
