15. DC PRO engineering

DC Pro’s revenues for 2016 were $11.2m (AED41.4m) and the projected revenue for 2017 is $14.4m (AED53m).

Last year, DC PRO was involved in several projects spread over UAE, Qatar, and Saudi, with clients such as Empower, L&T, Nakheel, and Emicool. A few of DC PRO’s awarded projects of 2017 include: DEWA HQ DCP — Extension of Site Supervision Services (Dubai), Empower Tecom C — Design Variaton (Dubai), Dubai Creek District Cooling Plant TES Tank (Dubai), MAN Enterprise — Warehousing, and Logistic Park — Electrical Infrastructure Redesign (Qatar), etc.

George Berbari, founder and CEO, says: “Year after year we have continually set the benchmark as a leader and innovator in our field, now the competition is growing so our challenge is to continue to improve our offering and research new opportunities that will allow us to stay ahead of the curve. All the signs point to a challenging 2017 for various business sectors across the global. But we are confident we have the strategy and team in place to continue our growth as we work on some key projects.”

DC Pro Engineering is a pioneer of Tri-Generation, which is still emerging in the region. Tri-Generation or combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP), is the process by which some of the heat produced by a cogeneration plant is used to generate chilled water for air conditioning or refrigeration.

Berbari adds: “Tri-Generation not only utilises waste products that would otherwise be discarded, but generates increased efficiencies from about 40% to more than 80%, thereby reducing primary energy use which saves money and preserves the environment. One famous project that integrates Tri Generation with Renewables is the award-winning Muscat Innovation Park Project.”

There have been success stories in the adoption of Tri-Generation in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, says Berbari.
