Emirates District Cooling LLC [Emicool] – a joint venture of Dubai Investments PJSC and Union Properties, will provide district cooling services at the Mirdif Hills project, being developed by Dubai Investments Real Estate Company [DIRC] – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dubai Investments.

Emicool will deliver 15,000 tonnes of refrigeration [TR] chilled water from its utility complex at the Mirdif Hills site through pipes, valve chambers and heat exchange stations.

The system, equipped to cater to over 2,400 customers in the implementation stage, will increase Emicool’s refrigerating tonnes per hour [RTH] production capabilities by 10%. The contract covers chilled water system for all residential buildings, hotel, furnished apartments and hospital within the $816bn Mirdif Hills project– the only freehol development in Mirdif now.

Adib Moubadder, CEO of Emicool, said: “As the demand for district cooling services across the UAE and region continues to grow, Emicool is privileged to be associated with the Mirdif Hills project by Dubai Investments Real Estate Company. Emicool has increased its overall productive capacity by 13% in 2016 alone; and the Mirdif Hills project will

provide a major push to the company’s planned capacity expansion to over 500,000 TR by 2020 amidst rampant construction and pent-up demand for district cooling services.”
