ABU DHABI: National Central Cooling Company (Tabreed) today announced the acquisition from Aldar Properties (Aldar, of 50 per cent of the shares in S&T Cool District Cooling Company, S&T, a major district cooling provider on Reem Island in Abu Dhabi. Tabreed will own 100 per cent of the company following completion of the transaction, subject to relevant regulatory approvals.

S&T’s district cooling plant on Reem Island has a connected capacity of over 31,500 refrigeration tonnes (RT) and provides cooling to prominent landmarks on Reem Island’s skyline such as Sun & Sky Towers, Gate Towers, The Arc and Shams Boutik mall. The transaction values S&T at Dhs348 million.

Jasim Husain Thabet, Tabreed’s CEO, said, “Tabreed is delighted to have completed this acquisition, especially as it serves a key Abu Dhabi growth area. The plant currently has over 31,500 RT of contracted capacity and we expect this to grow as new real estate developments in the area come online. This is also another milestone in our district cooling relationship with Aldar, the leading real estate developer in Abu Dhabi. The acquisition underscores our commitment to support and fulfil current and future infrastructure needs of large scale developments.” Tabreed is a partner of choice for organisations across the GCC in providing environmentally friendly district cooling solutions that support the region’s energy sustainability.
