Emirates District Cooling Company (Emicool), a joint venture between Dubai Investments – a leading investment company listed on the Dubai Financial Market (DFM) and Actis - a leading global investor in sustainable infrastructure, has become the first district cooling service provider to use a real-time leak detection system using the Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) technology.
The innovative leak detection system has helped reduce chilled water network losses by almost 70% as compared to previous years, the company said in a statement. 
As part of the Chilled Water Network Leak Detection Project, Emicool with European based technology provider (Fast GmbH), is enabling early alerts of the underground leaks, reducing water loss and is identified as a unique concept compared to all existing leak detection concepts like flow meter, pressure etc.
