Empower to supply Marsa Al-Arab with 3,700 RT District Cooling services

DUBAI, 16th August, 2021 – Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has signed a contract to supply ‘Marsa Al Arab’ with 3,700 Refrigeration Tons (RT) of District Cooling energy. The first phase of the project will start by the end of this year, and will be done by extending the pipeline network from the District Cooling plant located in Jumeirah, using special techniques to pass the pipes by digging a tunnel under Jumeirah Road without disrupting the traffic.
Marsa Al Arab, a mega project being developed on the Jumeirah beaches, comprises two artificial islands on both sides of the Burj Al Arab Hotel. The AED6 billion project spreads across a total area of four million square feet (3700 square meters).
Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said, “Marsa Al Arab is set to provide a matchless tourism experience, which will establish Dubai’s position as a global tourism destination through the qualitative investment that Dubai Holding is undertaking in developing marine attractions of the Arabian Gulf coast in Dubai. The project combines prestigious luxury residential and hotel buildings, distinctive commercial and leisure amenities, as well as an extensive package of diverse sporting, artistic and cultural facilities.”
Empower supports Dubai’s fast growing hospitality sector and more than 17% of the hotels in Dubai are served with energy efficient and environmentally friendly district cooling services.
