Azizi sources Irish Eaton Switchgears for its Riviera Projects

Azizi Developments, a private developer in the UAE, announced that it has partnered with Eaton Corporation PLC, the distributor of reliable, efficient, safe, and sustainable power management technologies in the UAE, to supply its premium off-plan, completed, and soon-to-be-completed residential and commercial developments throughout its Riviera project with innovative switchgear.

Eaton Corporation PLC is a global power management firm with operations in over 175 countries, offering energy-efficient products, and services that assist clients in managing electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical power more effectively, efficiently, safely, and sustainably.

Eaton will supply the Riviera project with its modern switchgear manufactured in Dublin, to provide centralised control and protection of medium-voltage power equipment and circuits in its projects involving generators, motors, feeder circuits, and transmission and distribution lines.

Farhad Azizi, CEO of Azizi Developments, said: “We are delighted to integrate cutting-edge switchgear into our projects, highlighting our commitment to safety and efficiency. Eaton’s products are among the best on the market, with a reputation for handling and solving some of the most difficult electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical power management challenges around the world.”

Riviera is part of Azizi Developments’ portfolio. It is a waterfront-lifestyle destination located in the heart of Mohammed Bin Rashid City, located in the business, leisure, and retail hubs of the city.

Designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art but also about a certain ‘joie de vivre’ — a celebration of life, an exultation of spirit, Riviera represents a destination that is both residential and commercial, with an abundance of retail space.

Riviera features three districts: an extensive retail boulevard, a lagoon walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a vast, lush-green social space.

In June this year, Azizi Developments announced the addition of a 2.7-kilometre-long crystal lagoon to Riviera, covering an area of over 130,026 sqm that will stretch across the entirety of the community.

With stunning blue flooring, filled with more than 51.5 million gallons of crystal-clear, desalinated, and clean water that residents can swim in, and easily accessible via its lagoon walk — which will also feature a vast variety of artisan eateries and boutiques — Azizi’s lagoon will be a bustling space where residents can enjoy strolls along the beach-like shores, sunbathe and cool off.

With its location near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse — home of the Dubai World Cup — as well as Dubai’s most noteworthy points of interest, Riviera represents one of Azizi Developments’ most coveted projects.
