Tabreed’s Board of Directors also appointed Khaled Abdulla Al Qubaisi as Tabreed’s Chairman, succeeding Waleed Al Mokarrab Al Muhairi, who was instrumental in guiding the company through its recapitalization and return to profitability.

Tabreed’s priority going forward continues to be delivering stable returns to shareholders, whilst expanding our operations throughout the GCC to boost the company’s long-term growth and success.” 

Jasim Husain Thabet, Tabreed’s Chief Executive Officer, added: “As the leading district cooling company in the GCC, Tabreed is the partner of choice for providing energy-efficient, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly cooling solutions to organizations across the region. We strive to strengthen our presence in the region by building strategic partnerships with leading private and government entities, and delivering innovative district cooling solutions to our customers.”

The new board now consists of Ahmed Saeed Al Calily as Vice-Chairman, His Excellency Dr. Ahmad bin Abdullah Humaid Belhoul Al Falasi, Minister of State for Higher Education, as well as, Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi and Saeed Ali Al Dhaheri. 

Tabreed provides its district cooling services to many of the region’s landmark projects including all the developments on Abu Dhabi’s Al Maryah Island, home to Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi Global Market, and all the developments on Yas Island such as Ferrari World, Yas Marina Circuit and Yas Mall, in addition to other national and regional landmarks including Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Dubai Metro, Dubai Parks & Resorts, Nation Towers development, Pearl Island in Qatar, and Aramco Development Project in Al Dhahran in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
