UAE-based Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has announced that it has extended its district cooling solutions to Al Jaddaf area of Dubai with 30,000 refrigeration tons (RT).
Its district cooling services will now be available for all the residential and commercial buildings and projects under construction in the area, said a statement from Empower.
One of the largest district cooling services providers, the company is keen to provide residents of Jaddaf area with the latest district cooling technologies, which will help reduce energy consumption and provide more efficient and eco-friendly cooling services for their developments, it added.
“Serving the Jaddaf area is an important step to ensure Empower expands its network to all districts in Dubai. Implementing a district cooling system in Jaddaf will not only lead to building efficiency, but also reduce demand on local power utilities significantly,” remarked Ahmad Bin Shafar, the chief executive of Empower.
Dubai’s Al Jaddaf area is bordered to the north and east by the Dubai Creek, to the south by Zabeel, and to the west by Umm Hurair 2.
The area is still developing as a hotel hub with many high-end hotels at present in construction. This area also has a metro station which is managed by the Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai (RTA).
The concept of district cooling has been adopted by several areas and projects in Dubai as an effective and efficient system of air-conditioning that can reduce the percentage of carbon dioxide emissions remarkably.
Empower’s excellent track record in delivering safe, reliable and environment-friendly district cooling solutions has enhanced the trust n district cooling solutions.
“District cooling is the way forward to tackle climate change and move towards a green economy. It is cost-effective, reduces the carbon footprint and provides much better cooling. It is noted that district cooling solutions consume up to 50 per cent less power compared to conventional cooling solutions. In a region where cooling solutions are required almost round the year, district cooling is the perfect solution,” added Bin Shafar.
