The contract calls for the completion of civil works, mechanical, electrical and plumbing works and the construction of the 66,000 refrigeration-tonne (RT) district cooling plant. The project is expected to be completed in 15 months.

Empower recently released details of plans for a 35,000 RT capacity Al-Quoz district cooling plant, which is scheduled for completion by June 2009.

In December 2007, it awarded a AED200m ($54m) contract to GDC Ascon to build a 40,000 RT plant for the Executive Towers at Business Bay.
