KUALA LUMPUR: Gagasan Nadi Cergas Bhd has commenced a 30-year supply agreement to provide chilled water from the district cooling system (DCS) to Datum Jelatek mall in Gombak, Selangor.
In a statement, Gagasan Nadi said its subsidiary Naditech Energy Sdn Bhd (NESB) had achieved its commercial operation date on Jan 3 to generate and supply 2,100 refrigeration tonnes of chilled water to the mall, encompassing a total lettable area of 317,011.5 square feet.
The mall is expected to officially commence in the first half of 2022.
The centralise DCS uses Thermal Energy Storage technology to store and distribute chilled water to buildings or facilities through a network of insulated pipes to achieve efficient air conditioning.
Group managing director Wan Azman Wan Kamal said: “We are building our track record in the provision of cost-efficient energy, riding on the success of operating a DCS in a tertiary education campus for the past 14 years.”
“With the experience garnered previously, we believe we can replicate our successes for the 30-year chilled water supply agreement with Datum Jelatek mall, and subsequently support the mall operation with efficient, affordable utility services.
“Moving forward, we will continue to leverage on our value proposition in this area, and seek for other similar opportunities to further bolster our revenue base,” he added.
