Emicool deploys distributed temperature sensing technology at its district cooling plants
Emirates District Cooling Company (EMICOOL), has
become the first district cooling service provider to use a real-time leak detection system using the Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS)
The innovative leak detection system has helped reduce chilled water network losses by almost 70% as compared
to previous years. As part of the Chilled Water Network Leak Detection
Project, Emicool with European based technology provider (Fast GmbH), is enabling early alerts of the underground leaks, reducing water loss and is identified as a unique concept compared to all existing leak detection concepts like flow meter,
The early detection of the water loss improves the plant’s operational efficiency by reducing additional chilled water required to overcome
the network leaks.
The company said it was enhancing and facilitating seamless access and
integrating latest technological know-how.
