Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, stated that it has started delivering district cooling solutions to Jumeirah Village Triangle (JVT) and Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC) projects. Empower will provide residential, retail and commercial real estate developments in these areas with up to 11,000 RT of cooling services.
“We are very pleased to deliver the first phase of district cooling solutions to JVC and JVT. The project has been supervised and managed with a high level of efficiency. At Empower it is our mission to provide landmark projects of Dubai with world class cooling solutions with district cooling services to drive the country towards its sustainable vision. The best technology has been deployed to construct the network in JVC and JVT, which will ensure highest performance and quality,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.
The project is divided into several phases and Empower will produce 30,000 RT by end of this year.
Empower has signed last year a contract with Nakheel to provide district cooling services to Jumeirah Village Circle and Jumeirah Village Triangle. Empower will invest AED 1.8 billion in 5 years for this project, and will build up 6 cooling plants in the two locations, to provide 260,000 refrigeration tons (RT) for the 440 buildings.
“Developers are becoming increasingly aware of the advantages of reliability of district cooling service. The strong local and international reputation of Empower has made it the first choice for cooling services, thus helping us acquire larger segment of the district cooling market in Dubai,” added Bin Shafar.
Over the past few years, Empower witnessed a dramatic expansion that made it the largest global provider in terms of capacity. Empower started a new strategy this year and signed series of agreements. The next stage will see several partnerships and agreements in response to the wide demand for district cooling services.
“It is a pleasure to witness more and more real estate developers adopting district cooling services in their developments as they realise its advantages. As we expand in Dubai and other Emirates, we adopt the best and international cooling standards. This not only demonstrates our quality and efficiency, but also reinforces our presence in the region,” concluded Ahmad Bin Shafar.
