Empower has awarded a $6.8million contract to extend its cooling service pipeline network to meet the needs of major development projects across Dubai.
The latest phase of extension work is slated for completion by the end of the year, and will link Al Wasl Tower 2020 and the Yotel Hotel in Sheikh Zayed Road; The Address Hotel and One JBR Tower in Jumeirah Beach Residence; as well as Barsha Heights with the permanent cooling plants located in their respective areas.
Empower reported that the network serving Dubai Arena will extend to serve Al Wasl Tower 2020, with a capacity of 3,900 refrigeration tonnes (RT), and Yotel Hotel with a 1,500RT capacity.
The pipes at Barsha Heights will serve new builds in this area, while The Address Hotel will be served with 6,500RT and the One JBR Tower with 1,550 RT through the existing pipe network at JBR.
“The cooling service pipeline network is gradually developing by the years, as Dubai's real estate projects are increasing,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.
“This reflects the confidence of investors and developers in our environmentally-friendly district cooling services that contribute to reducing carbon emissions.
“At Empower, we continuously work to develop infrastructure to provide efficient and high quality district cooling services to the customers adding to our customer base.”
