Sharing further details with Climate Control Middle East, Ali Al Jassim, CEO of Etihad ESCO, said: “The Dubai Airports retrofit project is the largest in the region, worth over AED 100 million. We would be retrofitting the chillers, HVAC system, lighting and pumps, and we would also be adopting other energy-conservation measures.”
