Emerald Palace Kempinksi Hotel Palm Jumeirah

Providing an ideal hydronic solution for the new luxury, 5-star resort in Dubai

The Project

The Emerald Palace Kempinksi Hotel in Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the latest in a string of luxury hotels and residences owned by Emerald Palace Group Hotels and Resorts. The seven-storey resort will include a five star hotel, private residences, grand villas, and its own 500-metre private beach. The development has a total footprint of 2,050,977 square feet and estimated value of over 32 million euros.

The Challenge 

The award-winning British consultancy, Hyder Consulting (ME) Ltd, was engaged to help design and engineer the development which will operate a chilled water climate control system, often used where the temperature of multiple individual rooms must be controlled separately.A project of this size comes with a number of engineering challenges that require extensive knowledge of indoor climate systems. Based on their proven track record of providing premium products and solutions and first-class technical support, Hyder Consulting (ME) Ltd had no hesitation in engaging IMI Hydronic Engineering to help design this project and its ambitious requirements.

The Solution

Hyder Consulting (ME) Ltd’s site MEP team, in collaboration with IMI Engineering Support Centre, IMI Hydronic Engineering, FZE and their locally appointed distributor, DC Serve Equipment Trading, LLC, designed a solution that could not only operate efficiently across a complex development but also extend the longevity of the system.

The solution provided included IMI Hydronic’s new TA-Slider 160 Plus, a smart digitally configurable actuator with set up options that provide flexibility for on-site parameter adaption, and a higher number of configurations that addressed the development’s balancing and control requirements.

Also part of the specific design solution, was the new Transfero TV Connect, a high-performing, precise, pump-based pressurization unit with in-built degasser. The elimination of dissolved gasses is imperative to prevent the degradation of the HVAC components from corrosion and rust, thus helping to increase the lifespan of the system, which was one of the project’s key requirements.The expertise of IMI Hydronic Engineering together with its innovative product designs enabled them to deliver a solution that could meet all of the customer’s requirements.

The system is currently being installed in preparation for the resort’s official opening in September 2016.
