According to Eng. Musallam Al Hadifi, Business Development Manager, Tabreed Oman: “We’ve been at the forefront of the cooling industry for almost a decade and last year alone provided cooling services to 473 buildings covering a total of 149.9 million square feet across the GCC as well as the wider Middle East. The 8 April seminar will give us an opportunity to share with Sohar-based businesses information on both the benefits of our cooling technology and how they can improve their cost effectiveness.”
Over the past five years, district cooling technology has become widely recognized as an important development in helping conserve energy and has been proven to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Global energy experts suggest that 75% of the energy used across the Gulf is for cooling purposes. By using district cooling, regional planners expect to reduce the amount of electrical energy used by up to 50%.
Commenting on Tabreed’s recent signing with the Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (PEIE) Al Hadifi says: “Our cooling solutions will help PEIE tenants reduce both their capital investment and operating expenses.”
By using district cooling, PEIE expects to halve the amount of electrical energy used by its tenants. “We’re providing PEIE’s tenants and the Sohar community with the latest green technology – one that puts the environment first,” remarks Al Hadifi.
Hilal Al Ahsani, PEIE’s CEO, said: “Our partnership with Tabreed Oman emphasizes the importance PEIE places on providing a more efficient infrastructure network to its growing number of tenants on Sohar Industrial Estate. We’re delighted to be able to offer technology that has such strong environmental credentials. Indeed, I firmly believe Tabreed’s 8 April seminar – which is free of charge and open to all – is an important initiative and one that will help businesses focus on cooling and environmental issues. Businesses need to hear for themselves the benefits Tabreed’s green technology can bring.”
