2 September, 2020 – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: National Central Cooling Company PJSC (Tabreed), the leading international district cooling developer based in the UAE, has announced the launch of a new initiative titled ‘#TabreedCares’. The initiative includes individual programs run across Tabreed’s operations in collaboration with our partners in the region.
In the UAE, the company has announced its support to the “Your Families Are Ours” initiative with SAAED Association. The initiative took place under the banner of The International Humanitarian Work day, which provided daily contributions of necessities to families in the UAE that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program was run in collaboration with the SAAED Association, the Ministry of Interior, and the UAE Red Crescent.
In addition to this, Tabreed will be providing technical instruments that produce a mixed oxidant solution that can be used to disinfect the potable water used at selected touristic sites in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to help with post-COVID operational precautionary measures, through its subsidiary, Cooltech Energy Water Treatment.
Commenting on the initiatives, Bader Al Lamki, Chief Executive Officer, Tabreed said: “We are committed to using our resources and expertise to support those that need it most. As we navigate a sustainable way out of the COVID-19 crisis, this initiative is the first step towards building a stronger community and extending a helping hand.”
In Oman, Tabreed has committed to supporting the funding of testing for COVID-19. The company has partnered with Opal (Oman Society for Petroleum Services), a non-profit member association in the Sultanate, in addition to the Oman Ministry of Health to fund the testing. Our operations in Oman are overseen by our subsidiary Tabreed Oman, whose portfolio includes projects such as the Knowledge Oasis Muscat and the Oman Avenues Mall.
In Bahrain, Tabreed is collaborating with Bahrain’s Royal Humanitarian Foundation (RHF), by taking part in the national “Feena Khair” initiative by providing financial support in Bahrain to help combat the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Tabreed’s operations in Bahrain are managed under Tabreed Bahrain and includes projects such as Villamar, Avenues Mall and the Bahrain Financial Market.
“For years now, Tabreed has worked closely with our partners, not just in the UAE but around the region to address critical cooling challenges – and these contributions are an extension of those efforts. ‘Tabreed Cares’ is one of the many ways in which the company supports the communities it operates, within, and we are already looking at further opportunities to do so in the coming months,” Al Lamki concluded.
For over 22 years, Tabreed has been the partner of choice for organizations seeking environmentally friendly cooling solutions to support their sustainability goals and to reduce their overall energy consumption and carbon footprint. With 83 district cooling plants, Tabreed currently delivers over 1.342 million refrigeration tons to key developments, including iconic landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Opera, The Dubai Mall, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Al Maryah Island, Yas Island and Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Dubai Metro, the Bahrain Financial Harbour and the Jabal Omar Development in the Holy City of Mecca in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
