Dubai, United Arab Emirates, July 14, 2020:    Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world's largest district cooling services provider, launched this year’s professional summer training programme for national graduates and institute students with a view to encouraging them to engage in the promising district cooling sector. A group of students have been joined to the new program from Zayed University, Al Ghurair University, the Rochester Institute of Technology and the Higher Technical College.

Empower pointed out that the continuation of skill development process was put into risk due the closure of technical and vocational education centres and training institutions around the world in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The situation prompted the company to take part in the efforts for returning the normal life in Dubai by continuing to organize its youth skills development programs, with taking the highest levels of precautionary measures.

Through this programme that runs for 7 to 12 weeks, Empower aims to introduce the young Emarati youth to the district cooling sector and encourage them to study relevant disciplines to gain the appropriate experience in the industry, as well as provide employment opportunities for them upon the duly completion of the programme.

The training programme includes specialized course on theoretical and practical aspects of district cooling sector, and saw the participation of students who study similar disciplines, such as: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Business Management, Human Resource Management, Sales and Marketing, Accounting and Quality Management.

During the programme, Empower will hold workshops and open days within various administrative and field branches to give the participants an overview of the work mechanism within the organisation, in addition to allowing them to visit Empower’s district cooling plants for experiencing the practical applications.

“Empower pays special attention to training programmes in order to raise awareness about the district cooling sector, as well as to raise the scientific and technical level of the participants of the programme, to achieve the highest levels in the district cooling industry, and to play a role in preserving the environment,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

“The summer training programme aims to promote district cooling industry among the young generation and encourage them to study this growing sector. It also aims to contribute to offering employment opportunities for participants and informing them about key specialties in the district cooling industry. Continuous training and skill developments of youth make positive impacts in this sector,” added Bin Shafar.

“Empower constantly strives to spread awareness on the environmentally friendly district cooling services. This supports the vision of UAE’s wise leadership, which pays great attention to sustainability, and has addressed the need to meet the challenges of climate change, as it is a real obstacle in achieving growth and prosperity,” noted Bin Shafar.

Empower provides district cooling services to more than 1,180 buildings, catering to more than 120,000 customers, with a total cooling capacity of 1.53 million Refrigeration Tons (RT). The Company offers eco-friendly district cooling services to a number of high-profile developments, such as Dubai Waterfront, Bluewaters, Dubai International Financial Centre, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Palm Jumeirah, Discovery Gardens, Ibn Battuta Mall and many others.
