The first district cooling system to be completed in Qatar has begun operations. The 30,000TR plant constructed by United Development Company subsidiary Qatar Cool will serve office complexes in the country’s West Bay development. The plant is currently providing district cooling to towers towers designated for guests attending the Asian Games in Doha during December. It is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2006. Qatar Cool is currently developing a second plant, which will add a further 37,000TR capacity. The two plants are scheduled to serve a total of 45 towers in the West Bay development by the end of 2007. Qatar Cool gm Shahsuvar Shahsuvaroglu said: “Through district cooling, a firm will witness a minimum of 40-50% reduction in its electricity bills, along with lower initial investment, less overhead costs and better utilisation of the area.”
