Empower, the largest district cooling company in the Middle East, has awarded Al Habtoor STFA Soil Group LLC (HSSG) the contract for carrying out shoring and enabling works in its new district cooling plant in Business Bay.

The new plant is the first district cooling plant to be constructed in Dubai compliant with the new TSE and TES requirements, as per Dubai Executive Council Directive for conserving environmental resources, including water, in providing district cooling services.

Once ready, the new plant will provide 34,000 RT, catering to the needs of the Business Bay residents, businesses and offices.

Ahmed Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower said: “We awarded this project to Al Habtoor STFA Soil Group LLC (HSSG) as the company is handling projects of similar nature in Business Bay. We always select our constructors after due diligence and we have chosen this company for its record and experience in the UAE in this domain.”

He added: “The implementation of the contract will take 3 months. We are getting ready to open the tender to appoint the primary constructor to build the plant, with preference being given to local companies and those that we worked with in the past. The new plant will serve the needs of residents and offices based in Business Bay around the area of Al Khail Road. It will increase the production capacity of Empower by 10 percent once it is up and running.”

Empower, the joint venture between Tecom and DEWA, provides district cooling services to leading real estate projects in Dubai. The company provides more than 400,000 RT of district cooling where it has highly contributed in disseminating district cooling technology that is a better alternative than conventional district cooling to be used commercial and personal wise.
