gulf dynamic switchgear secures aed 8 million contract for dubai metro project.

Gulf Dynamic Switchgear LLC (GDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of M'sharie LLC, the private equity arm of Dubai Investments PJSC, has secured a major contract worth about AED8 million to supply low voltage switchboards and AC Distribution Boards for Phase 1 of the Red Line of the world-acclaimed Dubai Metro Project.

GDS will also supervise the testing and commissioning of the panel boards supplied to the project. The panel boards supplied by GDS will be used at various stations and depots of the Dubai Metro project.

"Over the past 25 years Gulf Dynamic Switchgear has been privileged to work with many prestigious projects including Dubai Municipality, Motor City, Anantara Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Jumeirah Beach Residence and Al Raha Beach Resort. While these mainly comprised governmental, residential, commercial and industrial projects, this is the first time we are working on a transport-related project," said August Schmid, General Manager, Gulf Dynamic Switchgear.

Established in 1981, GDS designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of specialised electrical products that are used throughout the Middle East in the government and private sectors. A recipient of many industry awards, GDS has completed many prominent projects, including Al Awir Sewerage Treatment Plant Extension - Dubai Municipality, Al Raha Beach Resort, Jumeirah Beach Residence, the Head Offices for National Bank of Abu Dhabi and the Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Rose Rotana Tower, Al Hamra Village and Textile City in Al Aweer.

"GDS has worked hard to build its reputation as an organization that provides top-class offerings and superb customer support. To this end we have made considerable investments in cutting-edge technology and the right resources. We are excited to be a part of the Dubai Metro project and look forward to being able to offer our expertise to other pioneering projects in the UAE and Gulf region, in the years to come," Schmid added.

GDS launched an expansion program in early 2006 with investments in new production lines and larger premises in Sharjah. The expansion program increased the company's production capacity by 200 per cent, helping GDS make strong headway in domestic and international markets of main distribution boards, sub main distribution boards, motor control centres, feeder pillars and street lighting panels, synchronising panels, and other custom-designed panels.
