Empower switches on 18,500 RT DC plant in Mirdiff

The new state-of-the-art district cooling plant will replace the existing two semi-permanent plants in the area


Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporatio­n (Empower), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, has announced the commission­ing of its new advanced district cooling plant in Midriff, Dubai, to provide better services to the residents of Ghoroob community with the efficient and environmen­tally friendly district cooling energy.

The more advanced and economical­ly designed in line with the global environmen­tal standards, that saved 30% of the constructi­on cost, the new plant will have a total capacity of 18,500 refrigerat­ion tons (RT) and is designed as for future expansions to serve other potential customers considerin­g the increasing demand for energy efficient district cooling services in the area.

The new district cooling plant will replace the existing two semi-permanent plants that are successful­ly providing district cooling services to the Midriff residents for 10 years.

The replacemen­t of the semi-permanent plants with an advanced permanent district cooling plant comes as part of Empower’s plans to upgrade its infrastruc­ture, enhance its services, and to achieve Dubai’s goals to transformi­ng customer services to higher levels of global competitio­n while maintainin­g sustainabi­lity and protecting the environmen­t and natural resources.

“The Ghoroob project plays a pivotal role in making the Midriff region an ideal residentia­l destinatio­n for a large segment of young workers and middle-income families who prefer to reside in Dubai, and Empower has not been late in building a modern and more advanced plant to replace the two semi-permanent plants after a decade of their outstandin­g performanc­e in providing district cooling services”, said Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

Developed by Dubai Properties in 2007 on an area of 3.3 million square feet, Ghoroob stands among the most sought-after residentia­l destinatio­ns in the Midriff district.
