In 2011, only two out of four proposed district cooling plants had been constructed on a UAE island designed to support more than 100 towers with 1.4 million m² (1.7 million yd²) of office space and 850,000 m² (1 million yd²) of retail/community space. One of these cooling plants needed a mothballing solution for up to two years of layup. The district cooling company adopted VpCI®-649 BD as a long-term wet layup solution that minimized costs while providing the extended corrosion protection required.
