Techem tracks consumption
Specialist in tracking of water and energy consumption to make its Big 5 exhibition debut this week.
Germany's Techem Energy Services Middle East, a specialist in recording and billing the consumption of energy and water, will be making its debut appearance at the Big 5 this week.
Techem deals with energy efficiency and water consumption measurement, and offers products and services for consumption management that are designed to record how much cooling and water has been used in residential apartments.
"Natural resources are becoming scarce all over the world and ever more precious," said Hans Altmann, regional manager for Middle East &North Africa.
"Techem stands for the future-oriented topic: dealing efficiently with energy and water."
The company intends to open up the Arab market for measurement and billing.
Hans-Lothar Schafer, the company's international director, thinks there is great potential for the company in the UAE:
"We have more than 50 years experience in measuring and billing. This makes us the first choice for property owners in the emirates."
Techem's products are designed to record how much cooling and water has been used in each individual apartment within larger residential complexes. "Techem is thus fulfilling a growing need on the part of people purchasing apartments for more cost transparency in cold and water consumption," added Altmann.
Radio technology is used to measure consumption in properties. Techem is said to be a leader in using this technology, which removes the need for cables. Other services provided are installation and maintenance of the devices and individual consumption bills. Individual consumption bills are also said to be up to 20% lower than normal utility bills.
Techem has experience in over 20 countries. Altmann added that the rapidly growing residential market in the Middle East needs consumption measurement. "We expect a lot of interest in radio-based metering, because this makes it unnecessary for anyone to enter the apartment and the system can be installed at any time without laying costly cables."
