DUBAI, November 17, 2016

The International District Cooling Conference 2016 concluded recently at Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai, UAE with the attendance of key officials from the district energy industry, along with hundreds of visitors and exhibitors.

Held under the theme “A Climate Solution”, the conference was hosted by the Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) and organised by the International District Energy Association (Idea).

On the final day of the International District Cooling Conference 2016, the Danish Consulate organised a meeting between Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, and a delegation of Danish companies, with a focus on mutual cooperation in implementing best sustainability practices, and research and development.

The closing sessions of the conference included panel of discussions focusing on the thermal energy storage, the district cooling sustainable design with examples from the Middle East, water treatment approaches, technical innovations and systems’ optimization.

After a networking session, the attendees took part in two technical tours to Empower’s Business Bay 2 plant and Command Control Centre, two of the large facilities of the company and their high technology installations and equipment such as TES and TSE. The latter is pioneered by Empower and was awarded the Idea Innovation Award in 2013.

At the Command and Control Centre, the participants witnessed Empower’s another award-winning project, which won the Idea Innovation Award in 2015. The centralised control room can connect up to 100 district cooling plants across Dubai, which allows the operators to monitor, operate, optimise and identify a full range of parameters from the plant production cycle, to the distribution network, to the customer building interface, all the way down to the performance of individual air handlers in customer buildings. – TradeArabia News Service
