Dubai, UAE, 25 August 2019:  Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world's largest district cooling services provider, announced that it has awarded contracts worth AED 33 million to expand its district cooling pipe network at Dubai Studio City.

The network expansion is a part of company's infrastructure development plan using state-of-the-art technology to meet the increasing demand for cooling services in Dubai's growing commercial and residential sector and to provide high-quality environmentally-friendly district cooling services to customers.

This is the Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the district cooling pipeline extension project in the Dubai Studio City, and is 5 km long. The Phase 2, which includes extension of 1.5 km pipeline, will be completed by Q4 of 2019, and the Phase 3, which has an extension of 3.5 km long 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 an 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,” added Bin Shafar.

“Empower is significantly contributing to the implementation of the great vision of our leaders. Our wise leadership pays pronounced attention to sustainability and development, in addition to addressing the challenges of climate change, which is a real obstacle to growth and prosperity,” continued Bin Shafar.

Bin Shafar noted that Empower is involved in the implementation of several sustainability strategies, notably the UAE Vision 2021 and the UAE Energy Strategy 2050, which seeks to increase the contribution of clean energy in the total energy mix to 50%, the National Climate Change Plan 2017-2050, and the long-term national initiative to build a green economy in the UAE, under the slogan ‘A green economy for sustainable development', launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, which is leading the UAE to become a pioneer in the field of the new green economy globally.

Dubai Studio City spans 22 million square feet within Dubailand and includes three types of production studios - music, film and television. The city includes residential complexes and a studio complex, which is designed according to the highest international standards. The city is home to 14 residential studios, ranging from 15,000 to 50,000 square feet, supported by vast outdoor photography areas of about 4.3 million square feet. It also includes a complex of boutique studios, which are small independent production and television broadcasting units.

Empower provides district cooling services to more than 1,090 buildings, catering to more than 100,000 customers. The company operates more than 1.43 Million Refrigeration Tons (RT), providing environmentally friendly district cooling services to large-scale real estate developments, such as Bluewaters, Jumeirah Group, Business Bay, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai International Financial Centre, Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Ibn Battuta Mall, Discovery Gardens, Dubai Healthcare City, Dubai World Trade Centre Residences and Dubai Design District, International Media Production Zone and others.
