DUBAI, UAE, 23 September 2020: Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has commissioned an advanced district cooling plant in Mirdif, Dubai, the utility said through a Press release. It added that the commencement of operation signals its move to provide better services to the residents of Ghoroob community through efficient and environmentally friendly district cooling energy. Describing the plant – of 18,500 refrigeration tons (RT) capacity – as advanced and economically designed, in line with global environmental standards, which saved 30% in construction costs, Empower said it has provision for expansions to serve other potential customers, considering the increasing demand for energy-efficient district cooling services in the area.

Empower revealed that the plant is a replacement for the existing two semi-permanent plants that have been successfully providing district cooling services to Mirdif residents for 10 years. The replacement of the semi-permanent plants with an advanced permanent district cooling plant comes as part of Empower’s plans to upgrade its infrastructure, enhance its services and to achieve Dubai’s goals of transforming customer services to higher levels of global competition while maintaining sustainability and protecting the environment and natural resources.

“The Ghoroob project plays a pivotal role in making the Mirdif region an ideal residential destination for a large segment of young workers and middle-income families who prefer to reside in Dubai, and Empower has not been late in building a modern and more advanced plant to replace the two semi-permanent plants after a decade of their outstanding performance in providing district cooling services,” said Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO, Empower.

Developed by Dubai Properties in 2007 on an area of ​​3.3 million square feet, Ghoroob stands among the most sought-after residential destinations in the Mirdif district, Empower said. It includes 59 low-rise buildings – five floors – featuring 3,000 housing units, Empower said.

The new plant has already been connected to Empower’s Command Control Centre (CCC), which has the ability to analyse up to two million data from chillers, transformers, cooling towers, water supplies and more, using the advanced SCADA system, Empower said. The plant, it added, contains operationally efficient water-cooled chillers, which ensure delivery of high-quality cooling services to customers.
