TAS central plant goes on-line at Jumeirah Complex


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. TradeArabia News Service
