The Central Chilled Water Plant generates chilled water required for airconditioning of the DAFZA Buildings East 1 to 6, DAFZA Buildings West 1 to 6 and the DAFZA Headquarters Building. Due to the critical nature of operations of these buildings, the generation of chilled water is to be delivered on a 24/7 basis all year round so that the airconditioning will not be affected.
The Central Chilled Water Plant has a capacity of almost 10,000 Ton R and this study addressed the risks associated with failure of key equipment and incoming utilities. The recommendations resulting from study included the Risk Mitigating Measures (RMM) and Performance Improvements (PI) which have a synergy, thereby improving the reliability as well as reducing the operating cost of the CCWP.
