All the 75 plant rooms of Empower across Dubai are currently connected to and controlled by its centrally located, state-of-the-art ‘Command Control Center (CCC)’ and the operations team is closely monitoring the cooling plants. The new system will be a redundant system of CCC by way of having an alternate remote operation of the plants. EMPOWER explained that this is part of it’s strategy to ensure business continuity through having continues and close visibility of DC plant operations.
