|Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation, Empower, has unveiled expansion plans that will see its district cooling transmission pipeline crossing the 225km mark in Dubai by the end of 2015.|
According to Ahmad Bin Shafar, Chief Executive Officer of Empower, the company’s current network covers key projects across Dubai, such as Jumeirah Group, Business Bay, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai International Financial Centre, Dubai Healthcare City, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Palm Jumeirah, Discovery Gardens and Dubai Design District, among others, providing reliable and uninterrupted service round the clock.
"Every time we launch a district cooling service in a new area of Dubai, we go that extra mile to raise the standards of service," he said.
"Empower's district cooling systems provide effective and efficient means of air conditioning. Water is cooled in central plants and distributed through a network of piping systems to individual customers in different buildings. We have expanded the pipeline network proportionate to the growth in areas we cover and opened new cooling plants. We have been successful in commissioning district cooling projects on schedule, because we have control over the supply of the all-important pre-insulated pipes," Bin Shafar added.
Empower currently operates more than 1 million RT, providing environmentally responsible district cooling services to large-scale real estate developments.
