Company to add 30,000 tonnes of cooling for buildings including Burj Al Arab.
Empower is to add more than 30,000 refrigeration tonnes (RT) of district cooling for Dubai’s Jumeirah Group.
The project will include retrofits for several iconic Dubai developments including Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management and Madinat Jumeirah.
“Jumeirah Group’s properties in Dubai are among the most modern, memorable and luxurious in the city and key features of the Dubai skyline,” Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of the world’s largest district cooling services provider, said in a statement announced today.
“Empower currently serves district cooling to 70 hotels in Dubai and we are delighted to be extending this service to a number of Jumeirah Group’s properties in the city. We hope that our experience and expertise will help Jumeirah Group to improve its already world-class hospitality services to its customers.”
The signing ceremony for the agreement was held at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah on 23 December.
First load delivery is expected this month to Jumeirah Emirates Towers, with subsequent developments expected to come on-stream within the next two years.
Retrofitting plans will replace the less efficient chillers currently in place. Empower’s scope of services includes constructing, supplying, installing, operating, servicing and maintaining the Cooling Plant which shall be constructed at the location.
