Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation, Empower, has awarded contracts worth $9 million (AED33m) to expand its district cooling pipe network at Dubai Studio City.

The contracts represent Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the district cooling pipeline extension project in Dubai Studio City spanning five kilometres.

The second phase, which includes a 1.5km pipeline extension, will be completed by Q4 of 2019, while the third phase, which has an extension of 3.5km of pipeline, will be completed by Q2 of 2020. The newly extended network will be connected to a semi-permanent plant in the same area.

"The pipe network for providing district cooling services is expanding year after year, especially with the booming of real estate projects in Dubai. The extension will be made by using the latest technologies, which will help for uninterrupted delivery of services to customers," said Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

"We always seek to develop our infrastructure using the latest technologies, to achieve the best results from district cooling, align with global standards, and achieve the objectives of the Dubai Plan 2021, where infrastructure is the most important pillar," he added.
