The Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) officials have visited the Energy Centre at Al Rayyan Stadium to follow up on the activities. The team was led by Abdulaziz al-Hammadi, director of the District Cooling Services Department, who was accompanied by engineers from the department.
The visit was initiated as part of Kahramaa’s efforts to equip the stadiums with the latest systems and technologies
The visit came in connection with the ongoing preparations for hosting the final match of Amir Cup, Kahramaa explained in a statement. The visit was initiated as part of Kahramaa’s efforts to equip the stadiums with the latest systems and technologies and accomplish the preparatory work for international and local tournaments by intensifying monitoring and follow-up processes and raising the level of operational capacity. This comes within the framework of Kahramaa's tasks as one of the most important institutions sponsoring and supporting the organising committee of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Al-Rayyan Stadium uses district cooling technology through a central station with a cooling capacity of 16,000 tonnes. The station distributes chilled water to the stadium through a power station that serves a large number of air treatment units that ensure the required temperature for the fan stands area and the floor of the stadium.
The station relies on environmentally friendly materials in the construction process and follows the standards of sustainability of water resources by equipping it with a technology that allows treated wastewater to be used directly for cooling purposes.
The treated water is also used to irrigate green spaces in Al Rayyan Stadium park and its facilities. This helps sustain water resources in the country. The district cooling system, used in the stadium, consists of innovative and environmentally friendly technology and one of the most efficient and energy-saving systems. This makes it the most sustainable solution as it saves about 40% of electricity and 98% of drinking water when compared to traditional cooling solutions.
