The National Central Cooling Company (Tabreed), a leading international district cooling developer based in the UAE, has establishes Tabreed Energy Services, a new entity consolidating its service businesses.
The unit will provide customers with an integrated set of consultancy, operations and maintenance services, that will help them optimize the energy efficiency of their buildings and developments, the company said.
Building on more than 20 years’ of experience in offering management services as a complement to its core district cooling offering, the new company will allow building owners, both government and private sector, to access Tabreed’s deep expertise in optimizing energy efficiency and in particular cooling systems, which are the largest driver of energy use.
Bader Al Lamki, Tabreed’s chief executive officer, said: “Energy efficiency is a key pillar under the climate change discussion, and the UAE has set ambitious national targets as a part of its wider energy transformation strategy. The launch of Tabreed Energy Services positions us at the forefront of this rapidly growing market and enables customers to benefit from our extensive experience in enhancing efficiency within the cooling industry, as well as providing them with an end-to-end service offering.
“Tabreed Energy Services strengthens our existing district cooling business by capturing further operational synergies and enabling our delivery of fully-integrated cooling solutions,” he added.
With operations commencing in 2020, Tabreed Energy Services will offer the full spectrum of integrated building energy services, including energy audits and consultancy, retrofitting and asset replacement, financing, operations and maintenance; offered through both performance-based contracts (ESCO) and traditional service models.
With 79 district cooling plants located throughout the region, Tabreed currently delivers over 1.16 million refrigeration tons to key developments including iconic infrastructure projects such as Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Dubai Metro, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Water Park, Abu Dhabi’s Al Maryah Island, Bahrain Financial Market in Bahrain and the Jabal Omar Development in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
