Emicool clinches Enshaa district cooling deal
Firm will build, own and operate plant to supply new developments.
Emirates District Cooling (Emicool) has won a long-term contract to provide district cooling for property developer, Enshaa.
The company will build, own and operate a plant that will supply two new developments - the Palazzo Versace Dubai Hotel and Condominiums and the D1 Tower.
Under the deal, Emicool will supply 7300 refrigeration tonnes (RT) from a plant with a total cooling capacity of 5800 complimented by storage of 1500 RT.
Neither party revealed the value of the contract.
The plant will make use of Treated Sewerage Effluent (TSE) for its cooling towers, saving on energy and volumes of potable drinking water.
In a statement, the two companies said the plant will use thermal storage for maximum energy efficiency at peak load demands, lowering costs and potentially carbon dioxide emissions.
Emicool was chosen for its reputation and ability to deliver the project on time, as well as its customer friendly metering and billing system, the statement added.
Adib Moubadder, CEO of Emicool, said: “In today’s ever-growing world, significant innovation in the production, delivery, and utilization of water and energy is becoming increasingly important.”
