District cooling services provider Empower has launched an upgrade at its plant in Jumeirah Beach Residence.

The company is renovating its systems to the 2nd generation district cooling, which will significantly save power, improve efficiency and reduce carbon emission, making JBR the largest eco-friendly residential community in the world.

The project is part of company’s strategy to modernise the district cooling infrastructure in its 79 plants, providing them with new generation systems.

Constructed in 2005, the JBR district cooling plant underwent a major renovation in 2015. The second renovation process will add 10,000 Refrigeration Ton (RT) capacity to the existing plant in order to meet the demand from new developments in the area, such as the One JBR Hotel, the Address Residences Jumeirah Resort and Spa and the neighbouring Blue Waters project.

The plant in JBR leverages the latest technologies in district cooling systems, including Thermal Energy Storage (TES) technology that monitor and adjust the water flow to and from the cooling plant and helps reducing the burden on the state power grid during peak hours.
