Emirates District Cooling Company (Emicool) has announced plans to invest US $0.68 billion (AED2.5 billion) in the expansion of its district cooling infrastructure to meet increasing demands in Dubai.
Emicool, a joint venture between Dubai Investments subsidiary M’Sharie and Union Properties PJSC, will invest the funds over a period of three to five years. The infrastructure plans include eight different plantrooms ranging from 15,000TR to 75,000TR, a complete underground pipe distribution network, energy transfer stations and wireless metering systems.
The district cooling service provider is currently focused on serving two major projects. The Dubai Investments Park, which includes the Dubai Lagoon, Dubai Crown City and the recently announced Palisades project, will require 250,000TR.
The second project, Dubai Motor City, will include residential and commercial properties with a total demand of 100,000TR. The new infrastructure is aimed at efficiently catering for these two projects.For all the latest construction news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
