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 2350 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.

"Our experience in managing projects of this size and complexity was a major factor in winning this contract," stated Polaron plc chief executive Joe Stelzer. "We are delighted to be involved in another prestige project in this region."

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.

When the hotel complex opens later this year, the Polaron system will provide staff and guests with simple, single point control of lighting and other features in bedroom suites and public areas. As an example, check in staff will be able to select a 'welcome scene' to greet guests when they first enter their rooms, creating a comfortable ambience through appropriate settings for lighting, air-conditioning, curtain position and audio-visual system.

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.
