Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has announced that it has connected Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel and Suites to its district cooling network with a cooling capacity of 2,610 Refrigeration Tonnes (RT).
The Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel & Suites was initially developed by Al Fahim Group in Dubai Media City as Al Sufouh mixed-use project - featuring 527 hotel and residential units as well as retail outlets and advanced office spaces - to be a new distinctive architectural landmark for Dubai's skyline and its urban environment.
Empower pointed out that the number of mega projects benefiting from its eco-friendly district cooling services had witnessed a record increase in the recent years and the Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel & Suites was among the most recent iconic urban project that had been added to company’s portfolio.
"Our advanced district cooling plants and widespread pipeline network are efficient to serve any project in Dubai, regardless of its size or use. The increasing demand for our district cooling services indicates the high progress rate of real estate projects in Dubai that are looking for energy efficient solutions in space cooling," said its CEO Ahmad Bin Shafar.
The Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel & Suites project will be an addition to Empower’s portfolio offering its services to the iconic buildings in Dubai, stated Bin Shafar.
"Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel & Suites project will be connected to Empower's district cooling plant in Dubai Media City through pipelines using state-of-the-art technology," he explained.
Empower pointed out that district cooling was the ideal cooling solution as it used 50% less energy compared to conventional cooling systems.
This contributes reduction in energy consumption resulting low maintenance costs, saving money, and contributes to reducing carbon emissions, it added.
