Phase one of Tabreed’s Abu Dhabi district cooling schemes completed
Tabreed, the United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s district cooling company, announced that phase one of the two district cooling schemes servicing area 029, Al-Muroor, and area 030, Zayed Sports City, in Abu Dhabi is operational.
Phase one with sales of over 18,000 refrigerating tons supplies residential, commercial and governmental buildings across the two six-kilometer areas. Further customers in these locations can be supplied ultimately increase the two facilities’ combined contracted capacity to over 44,000 refrigerating tons.
“The completion of phase one of the Al-Muroor and Zayed Sports City developments is an important step for Tabreed,” said Dany Safi, managing director of Tabreed. “With the completion of each new district cooling facility, we can see the increasing awareness and support that environmentally friendly and economically efficient technologies are gaining across the UAE.”
“District cooling is the ideal solution to cooling requirements for landlords and tenants alike,” continued Safi. “The economic rewards for owners are substantial due to the lack of maintenance costs, and tenants’ quality of life is greatly improved as district cooling provides superior temperature control whilst significantly reducing the amount of harmful gasses and noise pollution generated by traditional air conditioning units.”
The new Abu Dhabi developments joins other Tabreed schemes that are cooling the UAE, including the Al-Ain Municipality scheme, ten (six operating, four under design) schemes cooling UAE Military bases, Al-Nakhil scheme in Ras Al-Khaimah, Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai and the under-construction Fujairah Water and Power Plant. Several new schemes are planned in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman and Al-Ain as well as several other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.
Tabreed has offered district cooling as a utility in the UAE since 1998 — (menareport.com)
