Tabreed to connect Miral’s attraction to existing Yas Island district cooling scheme while the new plant is under construction
National Central Cooling Company (Tabreed) will build and operate a new dedicated plant at the SeaWorld Abu Dhabi site by 2022.
Once completed, “the development will benefit from a reliable, technologically advanced and sustainable source of cooling interconnected to the Yas Island centralised cooling scheme”, said Tabreed.
Under the terms of a deal agreed with developer Miral, Tabreed will connect the new SeaWorld Abu Dhabi development to its existing Yas Island district cooling scheme while the new plant is under construction. This will deliver a cooling capacity of 7,500 refrigeration tons with a total concession capacity of 15,000 refrigeration tons (RT).
“We are delighted to have signed an agreement with Miral to provide essential district cooling services to SeaWorld Abu Dhabi,” said Bader Saeed Al Lamki, CEO, Tabreed. “Our commitment has always been to deliver state-of-the-art district cooling solutions that are energy efficient, reliable and cost-effective. We look forward to further strengthening our long-standing partnership with Miral through the development of this key plant on Yas Island.
“Tabreed has been playing a critical role in supporting Abu Dhabi’s sustainability agenda through providing sustainable cooling solutions to the Emirate’s iconic projects to maximise energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint. We are proud to share the sustainability vision with Miral for SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, which aims to provide impactful education and learning opportunities that inspire future generations to care for the oceans and support marine life.”
Gurjit Singh, chief portfolio officer at Miral added: “We are pleased to be expanding our partnership with Tabreed, a state-of-the-art cooling infrastructure on Yas Island, delivering crucial cooling services to many of our award-winning theme parks. SeaWorld Abu Dhabi is set to be Yas Island’s next mega attraction, and with this agreement, we ensure the continuous delivery of trusted, reliable and energy-efficient services to our growing portfolio of developments.
