Dubai: National Central Cooling Company (Tabreed) has signed an agreement with Miral to provide district cooling services to SeaWorld Abu Dhabi – the marine life theme park being developed by Miral on Yas Island.
Tabreed will connect the new SeaWorld Abu Dhabi development to its existing Yas Island district cooling scheme and will deliver a cooling capacity of up to 15,000 refrigeration tons (RT).
Tabreed also plans to build a new dedicated plant by 2022 at the SeaWorld Abu Dhabi site and once the plant is built, the development will benefit from a “reliable, technologically advanced and sustainable” source of cooling interconnected to the Yas Island centralised cooling scheme, the company said in a statement.
“We are delighted to have signed an agreement with Miral to provide essential district cooling services to SeaWorld Abu Dhabi,” said Bader Al Lamki, Tabreed’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to further strengthening our long-standing partnership with Miral through the development of this key plant on Yas Island.”
“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,” said Gurjit Singh, Chief Portfolio Officer at Miral.
Tabreed already provides cooling services to Yas Water World, Warner Bros. World and Ferrari World, along with Yas Marina and W Abu Dhabi.
