Dubai: Emirates District Cooling (Emicool) LLC, a leading district cooling service provider in the region and a wholly owned subsidiary of Dubai Investments, has implemented Siemens Demand Flow® Solution at its Al Jadaf District Cooling Plant in Dubai. This centralized chiller plant is currently supplying cooling to Palazzo Versace, one of Dubai’s leading 5 star’s hotels and the adjacent D1 Tower, an 80-storey luxurious residential tower located at Dubai Creek.
The implementation of the system is designed to generate a significant impact on energy conservation, resulting in the potential annual energy savings of approximately 1.629 Megawatt-Hour with 13.4% saving on annual energy bills enabling a return on investment expected in just below 2 years. This project is also expected to reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 716 tons per annum.
The tailor-made HVAC energy optimized Siemens Demand Flow® Solution provides a holistic approach to optimizing both chilled water and air distribution systems, without compromising on the comfort of the cooling services. The patented solution is designed to deliver immediate results through automated technology and its built-in analytics alleviate constraints on customers’ internal resources & extend equipment life.
