Empower has connected its district cooling services to One JBR Tower with a capacity of 1,522 refrigeration tonnes (RT).
The Jumeirah Beach Residence tower comprises 46 floors overlooking the Arabian Gulf and is the only residential project in the area with a private beachfront.
“One JBR is one of the major real estate projects in JBR,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.
“It is a unique architectural masterpiece, and we are happy to be a partner in its development by providing environmentally-friendly district cooling services.
“The district cooling service for One JBR Tower and the penthouse units is connected from Empower’s permanent plant located in the JBR area, using the state-of-the-art artificial intelligence-based innovative technologies.”
Bin Shafar stressed that all sectors are committed to implementing the directives of the UAE’s leadership, represented by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to involve all segments of the society in the transformation towards a green economy.
“Empower is committed to reduce carbon emissions, through the implementation of the Dubai Carbon Abatement Strategy and the Dubai Plan 2021,” he said.
“Reducing carbon emissions contributes to boosting the country's position in the green fields and helps to reduce costs, which in turn contributes to increasing savings for customers.”
