Will provide district cooling to 59 buildings with a capacity of 320 TR
Emirates Central Cooling Corporation (Empower) has announced that it has bagged the Mirdif Gate Buildings project for providing district cooling services.
According to Empower, the Mirdif project will be in addition to other areas it provides district cooling to in Dubai, such as Dubai International Financial Center, Dubai Healthcare City, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Business Bay and City of Arabia.
In a statement, Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, confirmed that the project was preceded by extensive studies before investing into central stations and networks to enhance ROI in the long and short run. In his opinion, Dubai was moving rapidly towards increased use of district cooling as an alternative to conventional cooling, because of its efficiency in rationalising electricity consumption and conserving natural resources and reducing operating and maintenance costs. He also confirmed that Empower’s plant in Mirdif would provide services to 59 buildings with a capacity of 320 TR.
He added: “Mirdif is one of the dynamic destinations of Dubai, and it is becoming a very busy area. This area has developed remarkably, and it offers customers a wide array of options. We have managed to create a large demand on our services from landlords and tenants at the same time.”
