Climate Wizard from Australia’s Seeley International wins gold at The Gaia Awards 2010

‘Climate Wizard’ from Australia’s Seeley International won gold at the Gaia Awards 2010, dmg ::events, the organisers of The Big 5 exhibition, said. The award will be presented at a Dubai World Trade Centre ceremony, to be held on November 21. The Big 5 starts on November 22 and runs through November 25.

The ‘Climate Wizard’ uses the natural cooling power of evaporation to reduce air temperature with a full counter-flow, water-to-air heat exchanger that produces very cold air. The water and air never come into contact, meaning that no moisture is added.

Seeley International’s Chairman and founder, Frank Seeley AM, said the win was particularly gratifying, as energy efficiency and innovation were key company values. “We believe that you can deliver superior cooling performance without sacrificing energy efficiency, and Climate Wizard proves this,” he said. “Climate Wizard is an innovation revolution and is already starting to change the way the world looks at air conditioning.”

The Gaia Awards were launched in 2008 and have quickly grown to become one of the industry’s most respected accolades. Joining Seeley International on the winners list this year are four silver-award winners, six bronze-award winners and 13 finalists.

Regional companies have also made their mark, with the UAE’s Mulk Holdings picking up a Silver award for its product, ‘ALUBOND Green’, and Gulf Engineering System Solutions was awarded Bronze for ‘Steril-Aire UVC Emitters’. Saudi Arabia was represented by DMC Saudi Arabia, which was announced as a finalist for the ‘DMC HR50 INSULATION RENDER’.

Simon Mellor, senior vice president of dmg :: events, said: “The standard of entries, this year, was outstanding, and congratulations to all companies who made the winners list, this year. As the importance of environmental responsibility continues to increases across the international construction industry, the technologies and innovations that are being put forward for Gaia Award become further advanced, and it has been fantastic to see the commitment to the environment from so many companies.

“The Big 5 will provide a showcase to help raise the profile of the winning green solutions, and we know from previous Gaia Winners that the awards can make a real difference to their business.”

Carlos de Jesus, operational director of Gaia Sponsors, APCOR’s Intercork Campaign, will present the awards.
