About us

Dalkia Middle East is a leading provider of energy services. The company is a part of French Dalkia Group, which belongs to EDF (Électricité de France).

With operations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar, Dalkia provides energy efficiency solutions to customers in the commercial, industrial and healthcare sectors. We mobilize locally available renewable energies and provide our customers with digital solutions and engineering expertise to support their low-carbon strategies. As a cooling specialist, we design, build and operate district cooling networks.

We offer a full range of services tailored to industry, buildings, cities, and local authorities. We help businesses become more environmentally friendly and support the transition to clean energy. Before implementing solutions, we conduct thorough analyses, taking into account the specific needs and technical infrastructure of our clients. We then tailor the appropriate financial model to ensure the smooth execution of energy initiatives.

As part of the global EDF Group, we bring over 80 years of expertise to help our customers save energy and reduce CO2 emissions through energy efficiency. Dalkia signed its first energy services contract in 1937 and has since expanded globally, establishing a presence in countries such as France, the USA, the UK, and more. Benefiting from EDF Group’s strong presence across five continents, the group entered the Middle East in 2018. Since then, Dalkia has expedited its growth in the region, marked by the recent acquisition of a specialized chiller operation and maintenance company, US Chiller Services.

King Fahed university Hospital

King Fahd University Hospital in Khobar (KFUH) is undergoing a comprehensive project to improve energy efficiency and modernize its facilities. The project implementation includes 15 Energy Saving Measures (ESMs) which address key components of the facility in order to secure their performance and guarantee savings. The project is developed under a partnership with Tarshid.

Kindgom Tower, KSA

Riyadh's most iconic tower, built over 20 years ago, covers an extensive area of 300,000 square meters. This multifaceted structure includes a Four Seasons hotel, a conference center, a shopping mall, offices, residences, and a large parking area. Our proposed solution focuses on making the tower's day-to-day operations and maintenance more effective, particularly for its mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. We're also implementing energy-efficient practices and exploring sustainable cooling solutions through cooling networks for the tower.
