EMPOWER's employee numbers rose 32% in 2010, driven by increased demand for district cooling

November 29th, 2010

Dubai, UAE, 29 November 2010: EMPOWER, the largest district cooling service provider in the region, has reported a 32 per cent increase in the number of employees during the current year, compared to 2009.


Ahmed Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said: "The increase in number of employees was to meet the growing needs for district cooling systems in the region, which rose by 45%.”


Bin Shafar added: “We follow a rational policy in hiring new employees. This year's increase is related to the actual use of the district cooling systems as a result of the increase in the buildings in the several real estate projects serviced by the company, such as Business Bay where 20 buildings were added to our coverage for district cooling systems, in addition to the Mirdif Project that is now being fully operating.”


Bin Shafar said: “EMPOWER has been growing steadily as part of its plans to position itself as a major player in the global front. The number of employees has now reached 275 against 209 last year.”


“This increase in the number of employees is not only due to the remarkable increase in the district cooling plants this year but also the launch of the customer service centre has required more workforce. All this comes in the company’s plans to expand its footprint across Dubai,” he added.


Bin Shafar expressed satisfaction with the increased demand for district cooling systems as the main alternative to the traditional air conditioning systems in Dubai.

On training the personnel, Bin Shafar added: “Training our human resources is a top priority. We believe that the human capacity is the primary contributor in strengthening our leading position in the region and the world.”


EMPOWER is providing the high quality district cooling system which reduce energy consumption unlike the traditional air conditioning systems.
