Ras Al Khaimah Municipality has appointed Danish water products supplier Grundfos to carry out auditing for heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (Hvac) systems, in addition to irrigation, water supply, and disinfection works for pump systems, across 50 buildings and sewage plants in the UAE emirate of Ras Al Khaimah (Rak).

Under a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed by both entities, the Bjerringbro-headquartered pump manufacturer will commence the seven-week audit on 28 August.

Grundfos will also conduct maintenance and systems certification training for Ras Al Khaimah Government’s building managers and supervisors, as well as oversee the municipality’s energy efficiency and renewables administration, which has been implemented in line with the Rak Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Strategy 2040.

Established under the directives of HH Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, the strategy aims at 30% energy savings, and generating 20% of energy from renewable sources, by 2040 as well as the retrofitting 3,000 buildings in the emirate.

Commenting on the MoU, director-general of Rak Municipality, HE Munther Mohammed bin Shekar, said: “The audit will help us explore further ways to reduce energy costs, by working with Grundfos’s team on pumping systems, which drive a significant part of our energy consumption.”

“A lot can be done to minimise water consumption by utilising the latest digital technology to make pumping solutions as efficient as possible and reduce wastage,” Poulopoulos added.
