Dubai, UAE: As part of its efforts towards disseminating advanced District Cooling technologies, Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has urged hotels and hospitality companies to adopt District Cooling systems. Empower was participating in the 16th Hotel Show that is being held from September 17, 2016, to September 19, 2016 in Dubai, according to a press communiqué from the company.

The show. the communiqué said, is a platform in the hotel industry, restaurants, cafeterias and hospitality services in the Middle East and Africa (MENA) region, where exhibitors from 48 countries are showcasing their latest products and technologies, equipment and numerous related services for hotel and hospitality sectors. The show also holds a number of seminars featuring more than 135 experts discussing major challenges facing the industry, and ways to improve services and boost inflow of visitors and tourists, it added.

“The hospitality industry in Dubai is more aware of the importance of District Cooling as 13 per cent of the buildings connected to our services are hotels,” said H.E. Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower. “By adopting District Cooling systems, hotels can focus on their core business and let us handle what we specialise in. We are pleased to use the Hotel Show, one of the largest platforms in the hospitality sector, to highlight latest District Cooling technologies within the hotel and tourism sector before leading players from the sector for their current and future projects.”

Bin Shafar said that Empower is keen to highlight the benefits of District Cooling over traditional technologies. “On top of financial savings in installation and commissioning work,” he said, “District Cooling can result in 50% reduction in energy cost when compared to conventional cooling means.” He added that the company carries out O&M works continuously throughout the year according to the highest international standards.

Locating District Cooling stations in separate areas far from buildings and institutions, Bin Shafar said, contributes to enhancing the experience of visitors and guests, and allows making better use of spaces that are normally reserved for traditional air conditioning equipment.

Bin Shafar, the communiqué added, expressed full confidence in the future of the District Cooling industry with the hospitality industry.
