Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) announced that it has made a new deal with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems to take advantage of Mitsubishi's revolutionary air-conditioning and heating systems, leading to a qualitative leap in Empower's environmentally friendly district cooling operations.

Under the new deal, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems will supply Empower with advanced water-cooled centrifugal chillers with a total cooling capacity of 100,000 refrigeration tons (RT), said a press release by Empower on Sunday.

The deal also allows Empower to double the number of centrifugal chillers to a total cooling capacity of 200,000 refrigeration tons (RT) over the next two years, which is equivalent to 11 percent of the total cooling capacity.

The agreement was signed by Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, and Kaoru Kusumoto President of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems.
