Doubles its portfolio from 400,000 TR of District Cooling capacity to one million TR

Empower, the District Cooling services provider, has announced a 9.4% leap of consumption of its services for the month of July, providing a total of 174.3 million refrigerating tonnes per hour (RTH), up from 159.2 million RTH for the same period last year.

Empower highlighted that in January it acquired Palm District Cooling, leading it to more than double its portfolio from 400,000 TR of District Cooling capacity to one million tonnes TR. The company’s enlarged portfolio, it said, contributed to the rise in peak consumption, along with a surge in residential and commercial occupancy.

“The month of July is usually the time of year that Empower experiences the highest demand for cooling services,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower. “We have been able to meet the demand of an expanding customer base because of the strategic nature of our networks and the hard work of our team.”

Shafar termed the increase in consumption of its services an important indicator of Dubai’s economic health, with companies continuing their operations through the hotter months.
