Palm District Cooling (PDC), a subsidiary of Palm Utilities, a part of the Dubai World Group, was recently named recipient of gold and silver awards at the International District Energy Association’s (Idea) District Energy Space Awards 2009.
PDC received the gold award in the Most Number of Buildings Serviced Beyond North America category, and the silver award in the Most Square Feet Serviced Beyond North America category.
District Energy Space is an annual publication of Idea that features a compilation of buildings that have committed or recommitted to district energy service in North America and beyond.
The Energy Space Awards 2009 highlighted benchmark quality standards and performance excellence of Idea members in the district energy industry.
PDC was recognised for servicing a total of 1,479 buildings in key residential areas in Dubai, the most outside North America, while the total area being covered by PDC's cooling solutions has reached more than 73 million square feet, the second biggest outside North America.
“Earning such a distinct recognition from an international organisation like International District Energy Association (Idea) sends out the positive message of Palm District Cooling’s continuous drive for meeting and exceeding our stakeholders (and potential customers) expectations,” said Shafiq Khoori, managing director, Palm District Cooling.
