Qatar Cool services in big demand
Doha, March 31, 2013
Qatar District Cooling Company (Qatar Cool) is witnessing a tremendous demand for its district cooling service at two of country's mammoth projects - The Pearl-Qatar, an artificial island spanning nearly 4 million sq m and West Bay, a newly developed neighbourhood of capital Doha.
The company was established in 2003 with a vision to be the leading provider of district cooling services in Qatar. In 2012, Qatar Cool was awarded the world’s best district cooling System by the International District Energy Association.
Serving its customers from three strategically located cooling plants and an intricate underground piping system, the company built an impressive client base that covers The Pearl-Qatar and West Bay districts, said a statement from the company.
With the governments turning to district cooling mainly due to its low cost and eco-friendliness when compared to air conditioning, the demand has been increasing on a daily basis, it added.
Owing to this, Qatar Cool said the production at its three plants has been ramped up to meet the demand.
Its operations have been steadily growing over the past few years as they have completely sold out the capacity of the two plants in West Bay. "Furthermore, the company is in design stage for a third plant that will serve waiting list customers," the statement added.
The Qatari firm said growth has become part of its DNA not only in terms of cooling energy output, but also in terms of the number of customers and employees. Since the inauguration of the first plant in 2006 Qatar Cool has witnessed an increase in connected capacity over the past 6 years.
As a utility provider, Qatar Cool’s service enhances the quality of life for the end users by offering a variety of district cooling benefits, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
