This would be Empower’s third district cooling facility in Business Bay and will come on stream by Q2 2016, said Empower officials.

Empower CEO Ahmad Bin Shafar said, “Because of its complexity, reach and size, Business Bay represents one of the most important facets of Empower’s growing project portfolio. Our newest facility reaffirms our commitment to this dynamic and vibrant community.”

According to the contract, a 45,000 refrigeration tonne (RT) facility will be built that will provide cooling services to 40 commercial, retail and hospitality buildings in Business Bay.

The new facility, when completed, will form part of Empower’s 135,000 RT network in that part of Dubai.
