Palm District Cooling and Stellar have switched on the first district cooling supply to Dubai's Palm Jumeirah. The Shoreline Apartments are now being supplied with water cooled air conditioning via the system.

The plant is sited underground on the Palm's trunk and is the first to become operational on the development. The US $41 million (AED150 million) plant can serve over 2,000 apartments; it was completed by Stellar in under 11 months. A modular approach was used to overcome some of the limitations of the plant location just under the Palm access bridge. Stellar prefabricated large sections of the plant offsite to ease logistics and reduce on-site installation times.

  •  Florida-based Stellar was awarded the US Department of Commerce's Export Achievement Award at the International District Energy Association's June conference for its work in the Middle East.
