EllisDon was the project manager for the utility provider Palm District Cooling in Dubai, U.A.E. The total capacity of the plant is 42,000 tonnes. This project was split into two phases: Phase 1 involved the commissioning and final takeover of 21,000 tonnes. The main contractor had abandoned the site, so EllisDon managed the appointment of new contractors to complete this project. The work done by the previous contractor had to be retested and assessed to ensure a speedy and safe plant delivery. After the successful completion of Phase 1, EllisDon was awarded the contract for Phase 2. This again involved the commissioning and final takeover of 21,000 tonnes. Phase 1 created a high standard precedent, which created a challenge for Phase 2. The EllisDon Team has achieved this same precedent on Phase 2 to date.
