Claims that sustainable multi-use in district cooling prevents water loss in its daily operations

Emirates Central Cooling Corporation (Empower) has announced adopting, what it claims to be an innovative system in water recycling, to enable the reuse of chilled water several times, aimed at saving energy.

In this context, Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said: “Empower tops its priority in preserving water resources through reducing the consumption of water used in providing district cooling services to its clients. The Executive Council in Dubai has ordered all district cooling companies in the emirate not to use desalinated water in its operations, and to use sea water and recycled sewage water instead. This aims at conserving energy resources of the Emirate for sustainable development.”

Empower claimed that it monitored sustainable use of the amount of water it used in its daily operations, without compromising the quality of its service. Corroborating this claim, Bin Shafar pointed out that cooling was essential for more than eight months a year in the region, making it even more imperative, not only to take advantage of modern technology, but also go the extra mile by innovating new technologies. He added that communities need to adopt the principle of energy conservation as their core value so that future generations could reap the benefit.
