Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has connected 1,552 refrigeration tonnes (RT) of cooling services to Dubai Properties’ 46-storey 1/JBR Tower project, which comprises 163 residential units.

The 1/JBR tower project, on which ground broke in March 2016 and delivery is expected in Q4 2019, is the only residential project in the Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) area with a private beachfront.

Commenting on the connection milestone, chief executive officer of Empower, Ahmad Bin Shafar, said: “The district cooling service for 1/JBR Tower and the penthouse units is connected from Empower’s permanent plant located in the JBR area, using artificial intelligence-based technologies.”

District cooling systems are said to use 50% less energy than conventional cooling systems.
