Trans Gulf’s experience in district cooling plants includes the operation and maintenance of Business Bay’s District Cooling Plant 2 and Dubai Health Care City’s DCP, as well as the reticulation works, operation and maintenance of Business Bay’s District Cooling Plant 3.

The project will involve the construction of one building with a built-up area area of almost 9,500m² and will have a total capacity of 43,750 refrigeration tonnes (RT).

The facility will be the first district cooling plant in the region to be built in line with “green building” principles, and to follow the guidelines of treated sewage effluent and thermal energy storage.

The project is expected to be completed in mid-2014.
