Smart Palm and CSS

CSS Group takes pride in associating with the logistics service support to the most awaited Smart Palm project in Dubai. CSS role was to coordinate the packing and Transportation from the factory in Suzhou, China directly to the prep yard in Umm Suqeim. This was done in a timely and efficient manner with a challenging program to be met.

In the old days, we used to hear that a tree provided you shade from the sun and a fresh breath of air, rejuvenating your senses. However, in our ever evolving modern times, a tree is destined to provide you with much more than you bargained for. An artificial palm tree structure dubbed, “The Smart Palm” has been launched by the Dubai Municipality with Dubai based D-Idea. These Smart Palms are part of Dubai’s broader vision of being the world’s first with innovative, sustainable ideas, which transform Dubai into the world’s foremost “Smart City.”

The Smart Palm unit stands at  an impressive six meters in height which also house an array of street furniture, free-wifi, cell phone charging and an area for public service announcements.  Additional personalized information such as weather, local attractions and services within the areas are also available.

Dubai Municipality recently installed them in Jumeriah, Umm Suqueim and has further plans to roll them out across the Emirate.  The Smart Palm is the result of a partnership between Dubai Municipality and D-Idea.  Winsun Global is the supplier for D-Idea and has utilized the CSS Group as the sole logistics provider to facilitate door to door movement of the smart palms.

According to Director-General of the Dubai Municipality Hussain Nasser Lootah, 52 more Solar Palms will be installed at various public locations like beaches and parks in the coming months. The Smart Palm has mono-crystal solar panels on top of the “fronds” which get charged in the day light hours providing a sustainable environmentally friendly solution. There are eight charging points in this hub and it can charge gadgets two and a half times faster than ordinary plugs. The Smart Palm is a tribute to the innovative spirit of Dubai and is just the latest urban invention that our growing city has to offer.

The free WiFi network connectivity of Smart Palm has a range of 53 meters with capability of connecting 50 users simultaneously, and is provided by telecom company Du.
