chiller replaceEtihad Energy Services Company (Etihad ESCO) has partnered with Daikin for the replacement of existing chillers with advanced, energy-efficient chillers as part of JAFZA Package 3 energy retrofit project

The project, which will see Daikin replaces 15 existing chillers with 15 new inverter chillers for 11 JAFZA facilities, is set to result in an annual energy savings of 3,019,679 kWh for JAFZA, thereby saving US$0.36bn annually.

JAFZA comprises multiple areas, facilities and buildings that house a wide range of business functions. Etihad ESCO has been working with JAFZA to facilitate its transformation into an energy efficient zone and had renewed its partnership with JAFZA for Package 3 to retrofit its Lease Office Building and food courts.

The Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) proposed by Etihad ESCO as part of the project include deep heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) retrofit, replacement of conventional lights with LED lights.

As the world’s one of the leading HVAC providers, Daikin focuses on promoting environmental aspects and energy efficiency across its full product range.

Ali Al Jassim, CEO at Etihad ESCO, said that this project aims to further contribute towards the achievement of 30 per cent reduction in energy demand by 2030 set by the emirate.

Yuji Miyata, chairman and president at Daikin MEA, commented, “This latest partnership with Etihad ESCO is a significant step towards achieving our overarching goal of creating new value to solve impending and long-term environmental challenges.”

Etihad ESCO is a DEWA venture that was established in 2013 to support the emirate’s vision of cutting down 30 per cent energy demand by 2030. Etihad ESCO conducts audits and proposes energy conservation measures to major building contractors and developers, bringing Dubai closer to the achievement of its sustainability goals.
