Empower 'saved 280 million gallons of fresh water in 2016'

DUBAI, May 13, 2017

UAE-based Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), said it had saved 280 million gallons of fresh water, enough to fill 510 Olympic swimming pools, last year.

The Emirati firm uses advanced reverse osmosis (RO) systems, along with the TSE technology, at its plants. The TSE technology of Empower was awarded first Idea Innovation Award in 2013, as first of its kind globally, it added.

CEO Ahmad Bin Shafar, said: "As directed by our wise leadership, water saving is at the heart of our operations. Through advanced use of RO technology, we at Empower, deploy this technology to re-use treated water repeatedly, which saves millions of gallons of fresh water."

"In 2016, Empower managed to use recycled water for district cooling solutions to reduce waste and increase the company’s efficiency. In addition, the company uses treated water for preserving fresh water," he stated.

"Empower also adopts several advanced systems to use waste water which is further treated to produce chilled water several times. It deploys a network of insulated pipes to transfer chilled water from its plants to the buildings where water returns to the plants to be re-chilled," he explained.

Empower uses the treated water in its tanks at several sites and plants contributing to major water savings,” added Bin Shafar.

According to him, the company is now developing all its systems to support higher operating efficiencies and achieve greater savings forwater, energy and electricity during the current year and in the coming years.  

"With our advanced capabilities, we are confident that we will contribute significantly to environmental conservation," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
