Abu Dhabi: National Central Cooling Company PJSC (Tabreed), recently began the supply of chilled water to The Residences at World Trade Center Abu Dhabi (WTCAD), delivering over 5,000 refrigeration tons (RT) to the 382-metre tower, the tallest in the capital.

Tabreed is helping The Residences at WTCAD reduce its expected energy consumption by approximately 8 million KwH per year compared to conventional cooling. This will drive an estimated reduction in CO2 emissions of 3,500 tons per year. Tabreed currently has 66 plants across the GCC and provides district cooling services to many of the region’s landmark projects including the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Dubai Metro, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit, the Pearl – Qatar, Bahrain Financial Harbour, and the Jebal Omar Development Project in Makkah.
