Emirates District Cooling (Emicool) has been awarded a contract to provide district cooling services at the Mirdif Hills project in Dubai.
The company will supply 15,000 tonnes of Refrigeration [TR] chilled water from an on site plant to all residential buildings, hotel and hospital within the Mirdif Hills project.
The system, equipped to cater to over 2,400 customers in the implementation stage, will increase Emicool’s refrigerating tonnes per hour [RTH] production capabilities by 10 percent, said a senior official.
Adib Moubadder, CEO of Emicool, said: “Emicool has increased its overall productive capacity by 13 percent in 2016 alone; and the Mirdif Hills project will provide a major push to the company’s planned capacity expansion to over 500,000 TR by 2020 amidst rampant construction and pent-up demand for district cooling services.
Emicool is a joint venture between Dubai Investments and developer Union Properties. Mirdiff Hills is being developed by Dubai Investments Real Estate Company (DIRC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dubai Investments.
Being constructed in two phases, the project is expected to be completed in the Q4 of 2018.
