The sav­ings can be achieved through the im­ple­men­ta­tion of a range of En­ergy Con­ser­va­tion Mea­sures (ECMs), cut­ting costs by

14.8% and sav­ing AED7.3m an­nu­ally. The agree­ment was signed by Ali Al Jassim, CEO, Eti­had ESCO and Ab­dulla Bin Su­layem, CEO, Seven Tides on the first day of Wa­ter, En­ergy, Tech­nol­ogy and En­vi­ron­ment Ex­hi­bi­tion (WETEX 2018).

Seven Tides owns sev­eral projects in the Mid­dle East, in­clud­ing res­i­den­tial, com­mer­cial and re­sort prop­er­ties. Eti­had ESCO au­dited

22 build­ings by Seven Tides be­fore propos­ing mul­ti­ple ECMs that of­fer enor­mous scope of en­ergy sav­ings. The en­ergy and equip­ment per­for­mance post the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the project are guar­an­teed for six years, with a pay­back pe­riod less than 3 years.

The retro­fit project will en­com­pass the in­stal­la­tion of Vari­able-Fre­quency Drive (VFD) con­trol on Air Han­dling Units (AHUs) to reg­u­late the Fresh Air Han­dling Units (FAHUs) based on the de­mand for fresh air, thereby pre­vent­ing wastage of en­ergy. This will en­able fresh air han­dling units to func­tion based on the prin­ci­ple of de­mand-based ven­ti­la­tion, which pro­vides fresh air on the ba­sis of oc­cu­pancy/de­mand. Be­sides, flu­o­res­cent, metal halide and other con­ven­tional lights will be re­placed with high ef­fi­ciency LED lights across Seven Tides’ prop­er­ties such as Ibn Bat­tuta Gate, Dis­cov­ery Gar­dens, Anan­tara The Palm Dubai Re­sort and the rest of the Seven Tides projects based in Dubai as part of the pro­gram.

Ali Al Jassim, CEO, Eti­had ESCO, said: “We are glad to equip the pri­vate sec­tor with en­ergy con­ser­va­tion mea­sures, thereby help­ing them cut down con­sump­tion, im­prove ef­fi­ciency and con­trib­ute to the emi­rate’s ef­forts, to­wards the achieve­ment of 30 per cent re­duc­tion in en­ergy de­mand by 2030.” Ab­dulla Bin Su­layem, CEO, Seven Tides, said: “The ben­e­fits of retrofitting ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties are far reach­ing with a clear fo­cus on cost and en­ergy sav­ings, while also cre­at­ing in­creased com­fort and well­be­ing to all our res­i­dents and ten­ants. Sus­tain­abil­ity is an in­te­gral el­e­ment to ev­ery area of our busi­ness and such we’re ex­tremely proud of our role in sup­port­ing Dubai’s sus­tain­abil­ity goals.”
