In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, Saudi Tabreed continues to improve upon its innovative plant design and operational methodologies to further reduce power and water consumption. As a company we are exerting a lot of effort in seeking new viable water treatment technologies that will reduce reliance on chemicals and encourage the use of environmentally friendly compounds.

Thermal Storage Reduces Required Capacity and Electricity Costs


  • Fan coil units and air handling units require minimal maintenance and rear breakdown occurrence
  • District cooling systems consume far less energy than air and water cooled systems
  • Air conditioning equipment consumes around 70% of total building energy and constitutes to 70% of the peak electric demand. By shifting that load from individual houses to a central plant, the housing electric load is reduced substantially and along with it the number of electric substations and length of electric cables
  • District cooling requires far less electric power than multiple plant rooms or ducted splits. Furthermore the plant room can house the electric substation, enormously reducing the electric works
  • Electric demand and peak shaving are easily controlled when district cooling is applied. This especially important in the case of on-site continuous or standby power generation
  • Gas engine chiller can be used on standby or peak shaving operation in parallel with electric chillers
