Saudi Tabreed announces the commissionning of the DC plant phase 1 at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh

The district cooling plant system design was based on a state-of-the-art high efficient chilled water plant concept with the selection of high efficiency chillers, and equipment delivering reliable and efficient chilled water to the buildings.

Saudi Tabreed, the exclusive provider of cooling services at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, is pleased to announce the commissioning of the District Cooling plant phase 1 with a total capacity of TR 20,000.

The construction of the plant started in late 2016 after Saudi Tabreed signed a concession agreement under BOOT framework with the General Authority of Civil Aviation for 32 years. After 3 years of continuous work with consultants, contractors and DC equipment suppliers, the commissioning of the plant is achieved in October 2019. The cooling plant is serving the terminals 1 to 4, the airport administration and the support facilities on an exclusive basis.

The district cooling plant system design was based on a state-of-the-art high efficient chilled water plant concept with the selection of high efficiency chillers, and equipment delivering reliable and efficient chilled water to the buildings, and offering the following benefits:

  • Economies of scale due to the set- up of centralized plant instead of individual cooling plants in each building.
  • Reduced capital and operating costs
  • Cost benefits from substantially lower electricity usage and reduced maintenance
  • Enhanced efficiency and reliability
  • Environmentally friendly 

Saudi Tabreed Operations and Maintenance Company (STOM), the operation and maintenance arm of Saudi Tabreed, is handling the O&M throughout the concession period of 32 years.

Saudi Tabreed is a key developer/investor in the district cooling area with extensive expertise, know-how in the provision of reliable and economically efficient district cooling services with more than 400,000 TR on its portfolio in major developments like Saudi Aramco, King Khalid Int’l Airport, Jabal Omar in Mecca, King Abdallah Financial District, King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals and others.

We develop and invest in district cooling schemes, providing flexible long-term concessions in the supply of cooling under BOOT framework. With multiple schemes and cooling solutions throughout the country, Saudi Tabreed promises to be the number one District Cooling Service Provider (DCSP) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, whilst strictly adhering to the terms ‘quality and sustainability.’
