A District Cooling Plant in Dubai with ARANER

ARANER is a worldwide engineering firm developing groundbreaking, custom solutions in commercial heating, cooling, and industrial refrigeration. We pride ourselves on our work in District Cooling due to its ability to solve the real issues of the future, including rising populations and temperatures. There is a great need for efficient, economic, and sustainable cooling technologies to solve these global issues. District Cooling (DC) is a forward-thinking solution for cities and commercial developments, where individual buildings no longer have their own cooling equipment, instead using a collective cooling system for the entire district. ARANER has more than 25 years of experience as a top District Cooling company in Dubai, the Middle East, and nearly every area of the globe.

ARANER's District Cooling Technologies

We specialize in District Cooling as well as technologies such as Turbine Inlet Air Cooling (TIAC) and Thermal Energy Storage (TES). The tailor-made equipment that goes into an ARANER District Cooling plant includes:

  • Heat Rejection Technologies: Water-cooled condenser, air-cooled condenser, river or seawater-cooled condenser. If water scarcity is an issue, we specialize in DC systems with ZERO water use.
  • Industrial Pumping Systems: Distribution pumps, production pumps, and TES pumps.
  • High-Efficiency Industrial Chillers: Vapor compression chillers, centrifugal chillers, screw chiller, absorption chillers, chillers with Remote Integrated Condensation, etc.
  • Refrigerants: Ammonia, R513a, and more, always in line with environmental regulations. Our District Cooling systems are proven to reduce carbon emissions and other harmful chemicals.
  • Thermal Energy Storage: DC plants combined with TES Tanks, where chilled water is stored in large tanks for use during peak hours. This results in cost and energy savings.
  • More: Integrated Control Systems, study of cooling loads, computational fluid dynamics, chilled water network, Low Delta T, etc.
For an in-depth and technical explanation of these technologies, consult our District Cooling Reference Book.

Notable District Cooling Projects in the Middle East

Zero Water Use Solution in Amman, Jordan

ARANER is a District cooling company in Dubai that has done projects in Amman, Jordan Figure 1: Abdali Area, Amman, Jordan

ARANER designed an innovative and sustainable District Cooling plant in the Abdali District of Amman, Jordan. This real estate development is a luxury business and tourism hub, which meant that not only did the DC plant have to work without fail, but the District Cooling design had to integrate into the urban environment aesthetically. Our District Cooling solution offered:

  • ZERO water use (due to the water scarcity in the area)
  • The implementation of more efficient chillers
  • Off-peak hour energy production to save money and energy

Seawater Cooling System in Aqaba, Jordan

Another important District Cooling project that ARANER has worked on is the Ayla Oasis Resort, a luxury resort around a human-made lagoon in the seaside town of Aqaba, Jordan. The goal was to install an environmentally friendly and efficient direct cooling system; this system would generate chilled water for cooling purposes with ZERO freshwater consumption and a fully automated sea water filtration system . ARANER developed a seawater cooled chiller with direct condensation to reduce both the capital costs of the original solution and future electric charges.

DC for Data Centers in Doha, Qatar

District Cooling can also incorporate Thermal Energy Storage. During the construction of the additional offices of the Al Ashghal Data Center, the Public Works Authority of Qatar found themselves in need of data centers with a powerful cooling plant. Since an emergency cooling source would be needed to maintain those low temperatures in the event of a power outage, Thermal Energy Storage was selected to achieve reliable backup cooling. ARANER’s unique design also maximized energy use and provided for higher TES Tank efficiency.
