The total length of Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation’s (Empower) district cooling pipeline network across Dubai exceeded 369km by the end of 2021. Empower said the network grew by 33.2% during the 2018-2021 period.
The company attributed the network expansion in 2021 to the new projects added to Empower’s portfolio, most notably the Marsa Al Arab, and the expansions of Dubai Healthcare City, Dubai Land Residential Complex (DLRC), Business Bay and the expansion of DIFC to provide company’s district cooling services to Wasl 1 and others, the firm said in a statement.
“The expansion of our district cooling network is driven by the increasing demand for environmentally-friendly district cooling services on the one hand and on the other hand, it reflects Empower’s tireless efforts to develop an infrastructure that help achieving the goals of Dubai sustainable development plans,” said Empower CEO Ahmad Bin Shafar.
Bin Shafar pointed out that the expansion was also due to the continuous and increasing urban development process in Dubai. He concluded, “The network expansion operations are implemented using cutting-edge technologies that ensure uninterrupted delivery of services to our customers.”
