How Taqeef helped ENOC’s build the greenest service station in the world

The project is the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum-certified service station in the world

Taqeef, the originator of desert cooling systems in the UAE and the Middle East, supported ENOC’s Service Station of the Future at Expo2020 in its goal of achieving ‘Platinum’ certification with sustainable, state-of-the-art, energy-efficient cooling solutions.

The project is the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum-certified service station in the world, with the design inspired by the ghaf tree. The Service Station of the Future was fitted with 13 indoor and outdoor units of the new generation O General Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology to cool 300 of space.

Platinum is the highest possible rating under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) – the most widely used green building rating system globally, and a mark of excellence for highly efficient, cost-saving sustainable design and construction.

“Taqeef has been at the forefront of championing air-conditioning technologies that achieve increasing levels of energy conservation beyond the referenced standard to reduce environmental impacts associated with excessive energy use. We are proud to have played a significant role in supporting ENOC in fulfilling its vision of a sustainable and technologically advanced concept,” commented Tariq Al Ghussein, CEO, Taqeef.

VRF systems are sustainable, cost-effective HVAC systems that offer many benefits, including energy savings, increased comfort, design and installation flexibility, lower maintenance costs, and quiet operation. Through these benefits, VRF technology offers the ability to obtain a significant number of points toward LEED certification.

With 50 years of HVAC leadership, Taqeef is setting the agenda for more conscious cooling – with cleaner, greener systems and designs in the residential and commercial sectors.  Backed by award-winning knowledge and service expertise, and economies in installation and low equipment life cycle costs, Taqeef’s insight and added value is helping reduce the impact of cooling on the environment, one degree at a time.

By utilising Taqeef’s O General VRF units, ENOC’s service station gained points in the following categories for LEED certification:

Category: Energy & Atmosphere (EA)

Prerequisite: Fundamental Commissioning of the Building Energy Systems

Prerequisite: Minimum Energy Performance

Prerequisite: Fundamental Refrigerant Management 

The VRF system does not use any chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-based refrigerant.

Credit: Enhanced Refrigerant Management 

Credit: Optimize Energy Performance

Category: Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)

Credit: Controllability of Systems – Thermal Comfort
