The project, to be completed in June 2006, will be serviced by Tabreed's Zayed Sports City (ZSC) scheme, which has a maximum cooling capacity of 22,000 tonnes of Refrigeration (TR).
"Tabreed was an obvious choice for the cooling requirements of the new headquarters as it already has an existing scheme in the vicinity from which they can supply us with chilled water," said Sultan Ahmed Khalfan Al Ghaith, General Manager, GPSSA.
"Being one of the world's leading companies in this sector, Tabreed has unmatched technical expertise and provides excellent after sales support to its clients. These were the clinching factors in awarding the contract."
The other projects serviced by the ZSC scheme include Zayed Military Hospital, Al Bateen Air Base, the Diabetic Centre and the Al Noor Hospital.
"The General Pension and Social Security Authority is an important addition to our portfolio of government clients," said Dany Safi, Tabreed's CEO.
District cooling is now widely used throughout the UAE and has been used around the world since it was invented in the late 1800s.
It works by piping chilled water from a centralised plant to a range of residential, commercial and government buildings.Landlords are attracted to the maintenance-free, economic and environmentally friendly cooling benefits of the technology, while tenants enjoy reduced ambient noise and better temperature control in their homes, making it the perfect solution for all cooling requirements.
