With this new 2,000 Refrigeration Ton (RT)[1] electrical chiller and 20,000 Refrigeration Ton per hour (RTh) thermal energy storage, Megajana’s energy efficiency will improve by 5 percent. This expansion also raises the existing two district cooling plants to a total installed capacity of 14,000 RT chillers and 95,500 RTh of thermal storage, distributing monthly over 3.8 million RTh of chilled water to its 48 buildings customers through a 12km underground network.

Didier Holleaux, Executive Vice President of ENGIE Group, said: “As Asia Pacific shifts into a new low-carbon energy model, clean energy innovations such as district cooling and heating networks will be crucial to support the region’s rapid economic growth in a sustainable manner. Our partnership with Pendinginan Megajana to expand Megajana’s district cooling system will help to promote Cyberjaya as a model for a sustainable green township.”

Dato’ Faris Yahaya, Managing Director, Cyberview said: “As the pioneer of District Cooling System technology in Malaysia, we are delighted to partner with ENGIE to deliver innovative green technology and energy efficient solutions for Cyberjaya, a global tech hub and smart city that is embarking on a sustainable economic development journey, in line with the government’s aspiration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight climate change.”

This 2017 facilities expansion, enabling a 5 percent energy efficiency gain, represents a reduction of 2.3 GWh(e) of power consumption or 1,160 tons of CO2 per year.

In accordance to the ratified Paris Agreement[2] aimed at reducing carbon emissions by 2030, Malaysia has pledged a 45 percent reduction in its greenhouse emissions by 2030, and cut 32 million tons of carbon emissions by 2020.


[1] RT stands for Refrigeration Ton, it expresses a cooling power. RTh stands for Refrigeration Ton-hour: it expresses a cooling energy.

One Refrigeration Ton is the rate of heat removal required to freeze a metric ton (1000 kg) of water at 0°C in 24 hours
