World's largest cooling plant set to open

The world’s largest district cooling plant is set to be opened in Qatar by the country’s Deputy Prime Minister.

The plant will provide cooling for the 41,000 residents, hotels, shopping centres and other facilities on the 400-hectare man-made island The Pearl-Qatar, with a capacity of 130,000 tons of refrigeration.

District cooling is a utility service which provides chilled water through a centralised cooling plant through a network of pipes to multiple residential, industrial and commercial buildings for air-conditioning purposes.

Qatar Cool’s combined plants in Doha are projected to save about 250 million kgs of CO2 annually, equivalent to burning 581,395 barrels of oil, amounting to the same level of CO2 emitted from 45,779 vehicles over a year.
