40,000TR plant to be completed by 2016

May 25, 2014: National Central Cooling Company PJSC (Tabreed), the Abu Dhabi-based District Cooling utility infrastructure company, has announced signing by its Qatari affiliate, Qatar Cool, of a contract for the construction of a fourth District Cooling plant in Qatar.

Upon completion in 2016, the plant will provide cooling to residential and commercial towers in West Bay in Doha, the announcement added.

The plant is designed to deliver 40,000 tonnes of cooling, cutting down energy consumption by approximately 50% compared to conventional cooling, and thereby leading to a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, Tabreed informed.

In this context, Jasim Husain Thabet, Tabreed’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Qatar is a significant market for Tabreed, as we look to continue to strengthen our regional footprint. For several years now, our affiliate, Qatar Cool, has been leading the way in Qatar’s District Cooling market, and has cemented its position as the main supplier of energy-efficient, economical and environmentally friendlier cooling solutions.”

Qatar Cool, founded in 2003 as a joint venture between Qatar’s United Development Company and Tabreed, along with other Qatari investors, currently, reportedly operates three plants in Qatar, including what is touted to be the world’s largest District Cooling plant on The Pearl, with a capacity to deliver 130,000 tonne of cooling to all the developments on the Island.
