Emirates District Cooling (Emicool) LLC, a leading district cooling service provider in the vicinity and a completely 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 presently providing cooling to Palazzo Versace, one of Dubai’s leading 5 star’s hotels and the adjacent D1 Tower, an 80-storey luxurious residential tower based at Dubai Creek.
The implementation of the system is designed to generate a huge influence on energy conservation, resulting in the potential annual energy savings of about 1.629 Megawatt-Hour with 13.4% saving on annual energy bills enabling a return on investment anticipated in just less than 2 years. This project is also anticipated to minimize CO2 emissions by about 716 tons per annum.
Emicool Technical and Energy Team, in collaboration with Siemens and with support of ARK Energy as project development consultant, executed energy optimization project for DCP 11 enforcing Siemens Demand Flow® Solution with assured saving energy performance contract in line with Emicool’s strategic goals to extend operational and energy effectivity of all DCPs.
The tailored HVAC energy optimized Siemens Demand Flow® Solution provides a holistic approach to optimizing both chilled water and air distribution systems, besides compromising on the convinient of the cooling services. The patented solution is designed to give instant results via automated technology and its built-in analytics alleviate constraints on customers’ internal resources & prolong gear life.
Commenting on the implementation of the solution, Dr Adib Moubadder, CEO, Emicool, said, “Sustainable solutions have been at the forefront of our operations. We continuously strive to attain the top levels of client satisfaction, without compromising on the quality of our services by enforcing better measures, maintaining up with our commitment of efficient operational and service standards. With this implementation, Emicool’s Al Jadaf district cooling plant will be optimized to make it 13.4% more efficient, which is in line with our strategy that pursuits to secure sustainable power supply, contributing to environmental safety via energy and resource conservation and directly impacting our bottom line.”
Emicool’s partnership with Siemens for this project will make sure smooth facilitation and maintenance of the solution, integrated into the district cooling plant. The solution is programmed to hold and make sure water temperature besides affecting the building’s cooling requirements. The parameters are fine-tuned to improve the total performance of the district cooling plant.
“This prestigious project is a magnificent example of how smart algorithms and machine-learning software can make a huge difference to both energy savings and the durability of plants and assets,” stated Markus Strohmeier, Senior Executive Vice President of Regional Solutions and Services, Siemens Middle East. “Once again we have proved the potential of Demand Flow to deliver outstanding plant efficiency for one of the leading district cooling providers in Dubai, responsible for supplying cooling to the Palazzo Versace Dubai hotel.”
