UAE-based Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), a leading district cooling services provider, has awarded contracts valued at Dh45 million ($12.2 million) since the beginning of 2016, said its CEO.
These deals will pave the way for a series of new contracts during the year, added Ahmad Bin Shafar.
“Being the world’s largest district cooling services provider in terms of capacity, we spare no efforts to maintain our leadership position by entering into deals that enhance our operations and develop our business,” explained Bin Shafar. “We want to make district cooling service accessible to a wider group of customers across the emirate of Dubai.”
The contracts serve Empower’s endeavours to extend its district cooling network, building associated infrastructure, and installing individual flow-meters for users at various key projects in Dubai. Some of these projects are located in Business Bay, Jumeirah Beach Residence, and Dubai Land Residence Complex (DLRC).
“We are utilising our expertise and resources to respond to the increasing demand for district cooling services in Dubai. Our operations are expanding at accelerated pace with focus on vital areas,” said Bin Shafar.
“We have created a robust system to construct and operate cooling plants according to the highest world-class standards. We also keep abreast with all the Dubai future plans, to make sure we are always able to cover the demand in the new projects while maintaining the same quality of service.”
The contracts are part of the significant expansion of the operations of the company, which currently has more than 70 per cent of the district cooling market in Dubai.
“Empower always strives towards excellence while developing its operations to cater to the rapidly increasing demand of district cooling across the UAE,” concluded Bin Shafar.
