Dubai's ClimaGulf in Oz air-con deal
ClimaGulf to distribute Oz evaporative cooling system in UAE.
Seeley International, Australia has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with ClimaGulf Trading of Dubai to launch its range of Breezair evaporative air-con systems in the UAE.
“Breezair will be a trend-setter for natural air cooling in the UAE, which supports eco-friendly and energy efficient sources of air-conditioning,” said ClimaGulf MD Sabu C. Abraham.
With the Middle East air-con market estimated at 100,000 units a year, ClimaGulf plans to tap the UAE market in the initial phase before expanding across the region, added Abraham.
Evaporative cooling is ideal for hot, dry climates like the Middle East, as it cools air naturally, effectively and efficiently. “It is a simple process whereby a cool breeze is created by hot air passing over water-soaked cooling pads.
"Natural evaporation helps soak up the heat and cools the hot air. The effect created by evaporative air cooling is similar to the cooler conditions found at or near large expanses of water,” explained Abraham.
Evaporative cooling is suitable for a range of residential, commercial and industrial applications. It is particularly suited to partially covered or ventilated places, which require a constant flow of cool fresh air, where it can aid in controlling heat build-up, smoke and fumes, and ensure a flow of cool natural air.
Applications include factories, warehouses, commercial kitchens, outdoor Majlis, kitchens, tents, outdoor restaurants, airports and hangars, bus stops, zoo, sports grounds and outdoor swimming pools.
Seeley International said it foresaw numerous growth opportunities for evaporative cooling in the Middle East. “Even on the coastal areas of the Gulf, Breezair machines can provide cooling solutions to many commercial and industrial applications,” said Seeley International export manager: Asia, Middle East and South America Kym Garrick.
“Breezair is suitable for places where normal air-con systems cannot work or be installed. Summer temperatures in the UAE can exceed 45 degree Celsius in factories and warehouses. These unpleasant working conditions affect morale and, in turn, productivity.
"To continuously use traditional air-con systems in such places would be extremely expensive. The advanced technology developed by Breezair is an affordable alternative cooling system,” said ClimaGulf GM Durgesh Verma.
