The total area served is 3.9 million square meters (41 million square feet) of the man-made island, the length of the Pipe Distribution Network (PDN) is 92 kilometers (57 miles) of underground supply and return pipelines with pre-insulated steel pipes with diameters ranging between 75 mm to 1400 mm. The network has one (1) boosting station.
All Energy Transfer Stations (ETS) are linked to the plant through a Fiber Optic Communication Network allowing for centralized monitoring and control of district cooling for The Pearl Qatar development.
Qatar Cool provides an invaluable feature to The Pearl-Qatar advanced infrastructure. The Integrated District Cooling Plant was specially commissioned for this community. With a capacity of 130,000 Tons of Refrigeration, it is the largest district cooling plant in the world. Occupied by over 45,000 residents, living in approximately 15,000 apartments and 700 villas. The island has also prestigious hotels and shopping complexes.
Inauguration date: November 2010
Cooling capacity: 130.000 tons (mechanical)
Number of chillers: 52
The total area served is more than 1.9 million square meters (20 million square feet), the length of the Pipe Distribution Network (PDN) is 28 kilometers (17 miles) of underground supply and return pipelines with pre-insulated steel pipe
The two operational plants are connected to the network and currently serving at the moment over 53 towers of Doha’s West Bay skyline. The third plant once operational will connect to the current PDN. Qatar Cool provides such towers as governmental offices, ministries, hotels, residential, commercial retail and office complexes. Every contracted customer has its own Energy Transfer Station (ETS) and all ETSs are connected through a fiber optic network to a central control room.
