TAS central plant goes on-line at Jumeirah
The GCC's first
packaged central plant, in the region's rapidly expanding district
cooling industry, is now on-line and providing chilled water in
support of the Jumeirah Beach Residence complex.
The complex, which
comprises 22 million sq ft across 36 residential and four hotel
towers, in addition to shopping malls, restaurants and office space,
is a premier property overlooking the Arabian Gulf in the heart of
the new Dubai, said a spokesman.
The Jumeirah Beach
Residence packaged central plant was designed, manufactured and
commissioned by TAS. As the pioneer in developing standard product
designs supporting packaged central and chilled water plants, TAS
developed the region's first packaged central plant in support of
the district cooling industry.
In keeping pace with
the region's significant rate of new construction, TAS delivered
on-site the first of 12 5,000TR central plant systems in a record 10
months from receipt of purchase order.
"TAS' approach to the
global central plant market has been to significantly invest in
standardised, modular product designs, which can be easily
customised to meet unique customer specifications. This upfront
investment by our engineering team uniquely positions TAS to deliver
a chilled water system in approximately half the time of a
traditional, field constructed central plant", said managing
director, TAS Middle East and Africa, Keith Evans.
The new district
cooling packaged central plant supports a seven-mile distribution
loop in which chilled water will be used to cool the buildings for
the final phase of construction.
TAS is partnered with
Wabco Trane on the project and Drake and Skull International (DSI)
is serving as general contractor with responsibility for
constructing the central plant's cooling tower facility. When
completed the district cooling plant will be operated by Empower.
