District cooling services provider Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) recently signed a contract with the Museum of the Future to provide 2,459 refrigeration tons (RT) of district cooling capacity.
The agreement reflects the positive reception and increasing interest of the property sector in investing in environmental sustainability, the company said.
Talking about the deal, Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower, said: “A hub for the future of humanity is being built right here in Dubai. Providing the Museum of the Future with a sustainable cooling solution is in line with the UAE’s sustainability agenda and Empower will ensure that the air-conditioning requirements of the technology center will meet the highest international standards.
"It is part of Empower’s DNA to support such projects as the future is in sustainability and the successful completion of this project would pave the way for many innovative projects – including those that will optimize our natural resources to dramatically improve our ways of doing business and lifestyles.”
The Museum of the Future project, which is built at the heart of Dubai’s business district near the Emirates Towers on Sheikh Zayed Road, will gather selected researchers, inventors, research centers, companies and funders under one roof.
Upon completion, the project will house innovation laboratories for health, education, smart cities, energy, and transport and will be a permanent museum of future innovations in all sectors, highlighting sustainable development.
