Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has unveiled plans to establish two district cooling plants in Business Bay, according to a company statement.
Named Business Bay 3 and Business Bay 4, the new plants will have the capacity of 90,000 refrigeration tonnes (RT). The plants’ cost was not revealed.
“Building two district cooling plants in Business Bay in Dubai is an important milestone for Empower and an addition to the district cooling plants we run in a number of prestigious projects in Dubai,” Empower’s CEO Ahmad Bin Shafar commented.
The completion of the two plants will enable Empower to fulfill the requirements of a master agreement signed in 2005, namely, to supply 350,000 RT of phased cooling to Business Bay.
“The increase in the number of district cooling plants reflects the high demand for district cooling systems across the emirate, and indicates the wide-spread of district cooling services in various sectors,” Bin Shafar said.
