Cooper Lights The Palm

The complete lighting controls package at the newly opened Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai was manufactured, supplied and commissioned on time by Cooper Controls. This massive US$ 5 million plus lighting controls contract was project managed from start to finish by a Cooper team drawn from both its UK and Dubai offices.

This World famous resort situated on 47 hectares at the crown of the palm-shaped artificial island Palm Jumeirah, opened on September 24th this year followed on 20th November by a star studded three day party and a spectacular firework display that was visible from outer space. The opening festivities were reputed to have cost a World record sum of US$ 20 million.

The 1539 guest room hotel uses lighting designs by Craig Roberts Associates, Dallas and Focus Lighting, New York and required the installation of over 10,000 channels of Cooper Controls' dimmers with 1,000 control plates. A wide range of light sources are installed including mains tungsten, 0-10Vdc fluorescent, metal halide, multi-colour LEDs, cold cathode and LV electronic transformer fittings, all of which are handled by Cooper's Adaptive Range of source controllers.

Cooper Controls' contract covered the hotel's total lighting controls requirement, from the several lobbies to the many Corridors, from the 17 Restaurants to the Ballroom and from the Retail areas to the huge 11 million litre indoor Aquarium.

An impressive feature of this hotel is the sophisticated lighting and control in a range of large (and even larger) suites. These suites start with 24 lighting control channels and 10 control plates, while the largest boast 200 channels and 60 control plates.

In addition, large exterior areas are also under Cooper's control, such as the enormous 17 hectare Aquaventure water park, the amazing freeform swimming pools and large areas of landscape lighting.

"This has been one of our biggest projects to date," said technical director Andrew Glossop, "in terms of the number of channels, the amount of equipment and also just the huge scale of the building."

All the various lighting control elements of the building can be managed via the Cooper Controls Ethernet Gateway. This enables any of the lights in the Hotel to be controlled from anywhere in the building using the Hotel's comprehensive Wi-Fi network.
