Dubai International Airport (DXB) has announced that it will be implementing Siemen’s data analytics and smart building technology.

By using the technology, the Dubai Airports, the operator of DXB and Dubai World Central (DWC) is anticipated to save approximately 20% on its energy bills.

The energy efficient technology will be used at the DXB’s Terminal 1, Terminal 2, Terminal 3, and Concourse B.

The energy-saving project is set to last for seven years, focusing on air and water systems.

The technology is expected to save 25,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions and 21mn gallons of water, as well as annually cut 50GWh of electricity.
