DC plant first in Dubai to be constructed compliant with new TSE and TES requirements

Empower has announced awarding Al Habtoor STFA Soil Group (HSSG) the contract for carrying out shoring and enabling works in its new district cooling plant in Business Bay.

The new plant is the first district cooling plant to be constructed in Dubai compliant with the new TSE and TES requirements, as per Dubai Executive Council Directive for conserving environmental resources, including water, in providing district cooling services, the announcement highlighted. Once ready, the new plant will provide 34,000 TR, catering to the needs of the Business Bay residents, businesses and offices, it added.

In this context, Ahmed Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower said: “We awarded this project to Al Habtoor STFA Soil Group LLC (HSSG) as the company is handling projects of similar nature in Business Bay. We always select our constructors after due diligence, and we have chosen this company for its record and experience in the UAE in this domain.

“The implementation of the contract will take three months. We are getting ready to open the tender to appoint the primary constructor to build the plant, with preference being given to local companies and those that we have worked with in the past. The new plant will serve the needs of residents and offices based in Business Bay, around the area of Al Khail Road. It will increase the production capacity of Empower by 10% once it is up and running.”
