In November 2003, Qatar’s United Development Company (UDC) and UAE’s National District Cooling Company (Tabreed), along with some local Qatari investors, founded the Qatar District Cooling Company as a joint venture with the intention of providing district-cooling services to the public, commercial and industrial sectors of Qatar.
Since its inception, Qatar Cool has aimed for operational excellence in every aspect of its business. Over the past 11 years, the company has developed solid technical and operational experience and has refined its approach on both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) fronts. Currently, Qatar Cool is the leading commercial provider of district cooling services in Qatar, with a fully paid share capital of 330 million Qatari Riyals.
Qatar Cool currently owns and operates three cooling plants covering the West Bay and The Pearl-Qatar districts with the combined capacity of 197,000 tons of refrigeration, with a forth cooling plant under construction. In terms of reduction of emissions, all three operational plants have removed around 150 million kilograms of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in the past six years, which is equivalent to removing over 28,000 vehicles from the roads or planting 15 million mature trees.
