    The Andhra Pradesh government signs a 30 year concession agreement with the UAE-based company.
    National Central Cooling Company PJSC (DFM: Tabreed), a leading UAE-based international cooling provider, has entered into a 30 year concession to offer District Cooling solutions to the greenfield city of Amaravati.

    The contracted cooling capacity for 20,000 refrigeration tons (RTs) entails build, own, operate and transfer India’s first district cooling system in Amaravati, the new capital of Andhra Pradesh.

    This will be Tabreed’s first plant outside its GCC market.

    Tabreed’s district cooling system is a part of Andhra Pradesh’s vision for Amaravati to create jobs and homes along with a world-class infrastructure and efficient resource management.

    In line with the ambitious plans to be amongst the most sustainable cities in the world, Tabreed’s system will meet cooling requirements for the State’s Assembly, High Court, Secretariat and other government buildings that are currently under construction, for which cooling services will commence from early 2021.

    Sreedhar Cherukuri, Commissioner, Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA), said: “Bringing in the best solutions and providers from across the world to build Amaravati, we are excited to select Tabreed, a global district cooling leader, as our partner for our new capital. Tabreed demonstrated strong commercial flexibility, operational depth and understanding of the complexity of well-structured district cooling concession schemes through the bidding process.”

    Khaled Abdulla Al Qubaisi, Tabreed’s Chairman, commented: “We are very pleased to be taking a leading role in the development of the new capital city of Andhra Pradesh. As our first district cooling project in India, this signals a significant step for Tabreed to penetrate one of the world’s biggest and fastest growing markets. We see this as an opportunity to establish an initial presence which will be the foundation for further growth in the future.”

    Jasim Husain Thabet, Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are very pleased with our first project in India, increasing our presence to 6 countries. Our strong core business, experienced team, structuring capabilities and proven innovative skills made us the ideal choice to be a long-term partner of APCRDA. Our focus will be on delivering high quality and cost-effective cooling solution to provide long-term benefits for the Andhra Pradesh government.”

    Compared to other cooling systems, district cooling uses only 50 per cent of the primary energy consumption for cooling urban buildings, thereby reducing CO2 emissions. It also helps in improving the air quality and reducing general noise levels when compared to other traditional air conditioning systems.

    Tabreed is the leading UAE-based regional district cooling utility company that provides energy-efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendlier year-round district cooling solutions in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The company owns and operates 74 plants in its portfolio across the GCC, including 63 plants in the United Arab Emirates, two in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, three in Oman, one in the Kingdom of Bahrain and others in the region.

    By Express News Service
    VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu laid the foundation for 30 infrastructure and amusement projects in Amaravati on the inaugural day of Happy Cities Summit-2019 on Wednesday. Naidu also unveiled the smart residential card to be given to Amaravati residents and Urban Asset and Infrastructure Management System (UAIMS).

    Officials from APCRDA and Amaravati Development Corporation Ltd (ADCL) said it was a red-letter day in Amaravati as foundation stone was laid for projects worth Rs 8,000 crore. Principal Secretary Ajay Jain and APCRDA Commissioner Cherukuri Sreedhar said works of most projects were already underway. The APCRDA officials said the UAIMS would help in efficient management of urban assets. A citizen portal was also unveiled on the occasion.

    Addressing a gathering, Naidu said Amaravati was a testing bed for innovations. He said the residential card would help the residents of Amaravati to seamlessly avail governmental and non-governmental services directly. Naidu said happiness was important in creation of vibrant economies. “I envisage Amaravati stands top in the world, that is why we made happiness as one of its founding pillars. If the strength of the economy is strong, it doesn’t mean the country is happy. To address this issue, we invite innovative solutions,” he said.

    Referring to the Land Pooling Scheme (LPS) used to procuring land for Amaravati as a successful innovation, Naidu said his government was going to implement another innovative scheme.
    “We will replace 17 lakh agricultural pumpsets with solar and energy efficient pumps. This is one of the biggest innovations as it would save 30 per cent energy and we can recover the investments in seven years,” he said.The three-day summit will conclude on Friday with a tour of Amaravati.
