Empower’s district cooling transmission pipeline to cross 225km in Dubai by end of 2015
Dubai, UAE, 1st June 2015: Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (EMPOWER), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, has unveiled expansion plans that will see its district cooling transmission pipeline crossing the 225 km mark in Dubai by the end of 2015.
Empower said its pipeline network is among the most efficient globally, because the company has strategic tie-up with some of the world’s major suppliers of pre-insulated pipes, a critical element in district cooling systems. One of the suppliers is ELIPS, located in Jebel Ali, in which Empower holds major share. In 2010, Empower found an alternative solution to importing supplies of pre-insulated pipes through ELIPS, which manufactures pipes of similar high standards.
According to H.E Ahmad Bin Shafar, Chief Executive Officer of Empower, the company’s current network covers keyprojects 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 an extra mile to raise the standards of service,” added Bin Shafar.
“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,” added Bin Shafar.
Empower have strong expertise in technical aspects of district cooling systems, including design and supervision of cold water pipeline networks, in addition to implementation of the central tasks in district cooling stations.
Empower currently operates more than 1 Million RT, providing environmentally responsible district cooling services to large-scale real estate developments, such as Jumeirah Group, Business Bay, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai International Financial Centre, Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Ibn Battuta Mall, Discovery Gardens, Dubai Healthcare City, Dubai World Trade Centre Residences and Dubai Design District, among others.
