Emirates Central Cooling Corporation (Empower), the largest district cooling service provider in the region, hosted a media Suhour recently at Atlantis hotel on the Palm Island. The gathering was attended by the elite of UAE media.
The Suhour was hosted by Mr. Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, and senior officials from the company.
Bin Shafar added: "This Suhour is an opportunity to interact with the media and show our appreciation for their crucial role in raising awareness of district cooling system as an alternative to the conventional AC systems, leading to energy saving and environment conservation, as well as lower operational and maintenance costs."
"We top the list of companies providing district cooling service in the region. We adopt a clear strategy to preserve environment through aggressively disseminating this technology and conducting campaigns to highlight its strategic value in the short and long run to the people and the society in general," he said.
The low awareness of the importance of district cooling in other parts of the Middle East is a golden opportunity to enter these markets emphasized Bin Shafar.
Empower has succeeded in organizing the production and distribution of its services in keeping with the demand for district cooling services. The company adopted a world class innovative system in water recycling to re-use the chilled water several times.
Bin Shafar added: "We succeeded in widening our clients' portfolios and adopting a strategy for attracting finest minds in the district cooling industry. We fully switched to recycled water in four of the stations of Empower in Dubai Healthcare City, Jumeirah Beach Residence, DIFC and Business Bay.
Bin Shafar said that the company will save costs in the coming fiscal year through its investments in ELIPS factory in JAFZA where it owns 51 percent stake, which will reduce the cost between 15 to 25 percent because of the production of insulated pipes in house instead of importing them.
