Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has awarded contracts valued at over Dh100 million ($27.2 million) to extend its cooling service pipeline network, with a length of some 10 km to connect various plants located at Dubai Production City.
The extension is part of its strategy to develop its infrastructure using advanced technologies to achieve customer happiness and satisfaction.
"At Empower, we are committed to developing our infrastructure and using the latest chillers technology at Dubai Production City to maximize cooling and achieve the objectives of the Dubai Plan 2021, where infrastructure is one of the major pillars," said Ahmad bin Shafar, Empower CEO.
