- PRESS RELEASE
As part of its firm commitment to settle its loans on schedule, Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the leading district cooling provider in the Middle East, announced that it has recently cleared a half-yearly loan installment of Dhs83m, part of the syndicated loan facility from a consortium of banks with Emirates NBD being the facility agent.
Bin Shafar said: "Our company has succeeded in positioning itself as a major player in the global district cooling industry through prudent management. Clearing our loans on scheduled demonstrate the robustness and sustainability of Empower's business model and effectiveness of its financial strategy. Empower had total loan of approximately Dhs1.2bn, of which the current outstanding balance stands at Dhs580m."
Bin Shafar said: "Empower has adopted a business model that works on the strategy of investing in plants and network infrastructure driven by actual demand in specific projects. This has resulted in sustainable growth and avoided unproductive investments and financial losses. Our prudent and conservative strategy has also been acknowledged by the banks and financial institutions."
Empower is providing high quality district cooling services which significantly reduces energy consumption as compared to traditional air conditioning systems. District cooling services achieve economies of scale by using centralised plants instead of individual cooling units in each building. The centralised system results in reduced capital and operating costs, thus lowering air-conditioning set-up and energy costs per building.
