Empower makes first d3 connection
District cooling company provides 10,000 RT to first phase of new neighbourhood.
Empower has completed the first district cooling connection to Dubai Design District (d3), providing 10,000 Refrigeration Tonnes (RT).
The Dubai company penned a deal last year worth AED 750mn ($204mn) to provide 120,000 RT of cooling to the new development located close to Downtown and Business Bay.
The neighbourhood will act as a creative hub for Dubai and will also include offices, retail, galleries and event space.
"With the rapid commissioning of d3’s district cooling systems, we at Empower have demonstrated our commitment to providing world-class support to Dubai’s ever-growing roster of real estate developments," said Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.
"Because of the size and sophistication of the d3 network, we consider this project as one of the most important ventures that Empower has been involved with."
Empower currently operates a district cooling portfolio of over 1 million RT across 62 plant rooms providing services to large-scale real estate developments such as Jumeirah Group, Business Bay, Jumeirah Beach Residence, among many others.
