Empower says it has enhanced the capability of its command control centre (CCC) for district cooling plants by establishing a ‘parallel working environment’ (PWE) system.
All of the firm’s 75 plant rooms across Dubai are currently connected to and controlled by its centrally located CCC, from which operatives closely monitor processes.
The PWE will act as a backup to the CCC, and allow remote operation of facilities, part of a strategy to ensure continuity and close visibility of systems.
Ahmad bin Shaafar, Empower CEO, said: “We are always keen on satisfying customers through developing state-of-the-art techniques in districts cooling, which enable cooling plants to work sustainably and without any interruption.
“Empower uses innovative solutions to provide consistent cooling services to the customers that contribute to sustainability, by balancing between economic development and environmental conservation.”
