Empower uses treated wastewater in its DIFC plant

| 17/04/2012 | 0 Comments

In line with Dubai Government’s strategy to conserve water resources and as part of its commitment to reduce the consumption of desalinated water in district cooling, Emirates Central Cooling Corporation (Empower), the largest district cooling service provider in the region, has deployed Reverse Osmosis technology in its DIFC plant to polish Treated Sewage Effluent (TSE).

The DIFC polishing plant’s daily production capacity is higher than the plant at Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) with the former producing  3,000 m3/day while the latter produces only 1,000 m3/day.

The DIFC polishing plant  produces water to potable standards, thus minimising and eliminating the use of additional expensive specialty chemicals to treat the cooling towers and chillers.

Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower said: “The new technique adopted by Empower following the directives of Dubai Government to reduce the consumption of desalinated water in the cooling process, will produce three times the current production at Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC).”
