Johnson Controls, a global multi-industrial company, will supply “YORK” HVAC equipment and building automation solutions for five, 400-bed hospitals in Iraq.
The order includes 21 YORK® YK centrifugal chillers, cooling towers, air handling units, and fan coil units. The technologies are designed to work together to deliver more energy and operational savings.
Claude Allain, vice president and general manager of the Middle East for Johnson Controls, said:
“Johnson Controls helps hospitals around the world deliver better patient care in more energy efficient facilities. Our technologies, including HVAC equipment, lighting and fire alarm systems, communicate with each other to keep patient rooms comfortable and safe …
“These technologies save energy and reduce operating costs which allows these hospitals to put additional funding into other critical needs.”
Dr. Marcus Schumacher, vice president for operations and engineering, Middle East, added:
“Variable speed drives (VSDs) on these YORK® chillers reduce power consumption by 20 to 30 percent and increase product durability …
“The chillers use advanced automatic tube cleaning technology that improves heat transfer and operational efficiency, run on environmentally friendly HFC-R134a refrigerant and can operate under extreme entering condenser water temperatures that would cause many other makes of chillers to shut down.”
Johnson Controls serves the market with offices in UAE, Qatar, Egypt, Turkey, Oman, and Bahrain. The company operates in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon through a joint venture, Al Salem Johnson Controls. Johnson Controls also maintains a wide network of distribution partners and is a preferred supplier for several real estate development and district cooling service companies.
