Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has announced the start of construction work for its new plant in Dubai Production City, worth AED 197 million.
The project will be implemented in two phases, with the first phase is expected to be complete by the end of 2020.
The total capacity of the project will be 47,000 Refrigeration Tonnes (RT) to serve its customers in Dubai Production City.
This supports Empower’s strategy to meet the growing demand for district cooling services, and to provide high-quality and environmentally-friendly district cooling services. The plant is constructed as per international standards and seeks to achieve LEED Gold certification.
“The new plant in Dubai Production City will use the latest Chiller Technology, achieving unprecedented low KW/TR. Two Thermal Energy Storage (TES) tanks will be functioning in the plant; this technology helps to optimize the usage of on and off peak hours and thus saves energy efficiently. Treated Sewage Effluent (TSE) technology will also be used in the plant operation, to save potable water and preserve resources for generations to come,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.
