Will also provide cooling to additional projects currently under construction
Abu Dhabi – United Arab Emirates: National Central Cooling Company PJSC (“Tabreed”), the leading Abu Dhabi-based district cooling utility infrastructure company, today announced that it has signed a new agreement with the UAE University (“UAEU”) to provide them with 17,500 tons of cooling for their existing and future projects.
Tabreed began providing cooling to the UAEU main campus in 2009. The new agreement paves the way for UAEU to make further connections to Tabreed’s dedicated plant once its future projects are completed.
Commenting on the agreement, Jasim Husain Thabet, Tabreed’s CEO, said: “We are proud to provide critical infrastructure support to the leading educational institution in the country. We have been partnering with the UAE University for more than 5 years and this agreement further bolsters our strong relationship.
“During this period, we have focused on delivering energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly cooling solutions to the UAE University which has enabled them to reduce their energy consumption by about 26 million kWh annually. This saving translates into the elimination of over 11,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere.”
The projects currently under construction by the UAE University include storage facilities and student accommodation. They are expected to be connected to Tabreed’s district cooling plant at the end of 2014.
In addition to the UAE University, Tabreed’s district cooling services are delivered to many of the UAE’s iconic projects and landmarks including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit, Dubai Metro, and Etihad Towers. In the GCC, Tabreed provides cooling to key projects such as The Pearl – Qatar, and the Jabal Omar Development Project in the Holy City of Mecca.
