Emicool commissions solar farm in Dubai
Dubai, November 6, 2013
Emirates District Cooling (Emicool), a leading district cooling service provider in the region, has announced the commissioning of a solar farm within its premises at Dubai Investment Park.
Emicool said this comes in line with its campaign to support sustainable development in the region which strengthens the company’s position as an innovative and pioneering district cooling entity.
The Solar Farm has been innovatively integrated in the Emicool parking structure with a solar canopy, which provides sun shade for vehicles besides producing ‘green’ electricity. Moreover, the solar farm production complies with entire power requirements of the Emicool head office.
The annual power generation of the Solar Farm is 101 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity and will displace an average 50 tonnes of CO2 annually. This energy positively generated leads to a saving of the power needs at Emicool, said a senior official.
“We are proud to announce another project completion, among many measures already implemented, while executing our daily operation of district cooling services that is proven as green solution itself. We plan to expand the scope of this farm in the coming months,” remarked Adib Moubadder, the general manager of Emicool.
With its proven successful track record in four prestigious geographical locations – Dubai Investment Park, Dubai Motor City, Dubai Sports City and Uptown Mirdiff, Emicool currently serves uninterrupted supply of chilled water cooling services produced with the help of innovative and sustainable technology to more than 14,000 customers in its network.
The company was conferred the Dubai Chamber CSR Label earlier this year for its contribution to workplace, marketplace, community and environment.-TradeArabia News Service
