Du - The new world-class facility at Al Qudra Site will cater to the growth in demand of satellite TV offering state-of-the-art technology. The new site has larger antennas ensuring robust signal levels in transmission and reception. The new upgraded facility covers an area of 75,000m2 and was built to enable the expanding requirements of DU’s customers: to deliver superior service with a focus on service reliability, refined control, and monitoring of the services uplinked from there.
As with most commercial buildings, the DU
Al Qudra Broadcasting Center suffers from
peaks of cooling demand, compounded by
the harsh weather conditions in the city of
Dubai. With chillers operating at peak capacity,
DU’s engineers faced mounting operational
The challenge was clear: reduce electricity consumption of the chiller during heat season, boost its efficiency and ensure a constant, stable operating mode.
To prevent the overloading of the plant’s cooling equipment, installing the Smart Cooling™ PRO 10 system was a pressing need. Smart Cooling™ would allow the Carrier 30XA1702 chiller to produce more cooling capacity and operate more efficiently, even in extreme heat.
In 2021, DU Al Qudra Broadcasting Center equipped their cooling facilities with the intelligent adiabatic Smart Cooling™ system. Smart Cooling™ lowered the air temperature flowing into the chiller, boosting its cooling capacity and significantly reducing its electricity consumption.
