Empower to expand Business Bay cooling plant

04 July 2013

Project will increase capacity of district cooling plant to 45,000 refrigeration tonnes

The local Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) is planning to invest AED15m ($4m) to expand the capacity of a district cooling plant in the Business Bay area.

The expansion will increase the capacity of the Business Bay Executive Towers district cooling project to 45,000 refrigeration tonnes, a 14 per cent increase. The expansion is scheduled for completion in 2014.

Empower was established as a joint venture between Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa) and Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone (Tecom) in 2003 to provide district cooling services in Dubai.

In February 2013, Empower awarded the local Al-Habtoor Soil Group a contract for carrying out shoring and enabling works on a new 45,000RT district cooling plant in Business Bay.
