HOT|COOL NO.2/2016 - "District cooling in the Middle East"


In 2013, Qatar Cool's West Bay cooling supply exceeded 170 million RT, the company said, representing around 120 million kWh in savings over conventional cooling methods.

In July, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) announced that it had received an order for 80 units of its large-scale centrifugal chillers for a district cooling plant associated with an urban development project in Medina. The plant is expected to provide 200,000 RT to an area of 1.6 million m2. Delivery of the chillers is scheduled for this autumn, MHI said. Qatar In Qatar, Doha's Integrated District Cooling Plant (IDCP) on the 4 million m2 man-made Pearl-Qatar island, home to riviera-style cafes, restaurants, shopping centres and 45,000 residents, runs on electric chillers and is the largest of its type. Commissioned in 2010, the plant supplies 130,000 RT.

The plant is operated by district cooling firm Qatar Cool, which was the 2014 winner of IDEA's 'Space Award for total area committed' and 'Space Award for total number of buildings committed' to district energy. Currently, Qatar Cool is expanding its district cooling plant in Doha's West Bay neighbourhood. West Bay, which features some of Qatar's tallest skyscrapers housing luxury apartments, high-end offices and hotels, is already served by two of Qatar Cool's district cooling plants which supply a combined capacity of 57,000 RT to around 46 towers. Once online in the third quarter of 2016, the third plant's 14 chillers and thermal energy storage tank are expected to bring the company's total offering to around 40,000 RT. Qatar Cool announced this summer that it is increasing the capacity by an additional 25,000 RT in the second phase of the third plant's development, noting that when online, the plant is expected to reduce the neighbourhood's energy use by 40%-45%.
