Dubai, UAE, 26 September 2018: There has been strong demand for comfort cooling for employees in the construction and oil & gas sectors, said Stewart Murray, Managing Director, Rental Solutions & Services (RSS), adding that there was significant uptake for the company’s Wild Air applications this year, owing to the high ambient conditions. “Secondly, we’ve experienced an increase in manufacturers requiring increased cooling capacity, especially when it comes to food production,” Murray added, as he outlined emerging trends in the market. “Emergency cooling has also seen an increase in activity, where fixed infrastructure has reached an age where the increase in ambient conditions has led to a demand for cooling to be increased.” Murray said that the company’s focus on the events market has seen a substantial growth this year, which is projected to continue with event season looming.

Murray said that though customer needs continue to evolve, the demand for service, capability, flexibility and fast response times, remains at the forefront of customer requirements. “There is always a downward pressure on cost, that’s just the nature of the market,” he said. “It’s up to us at RSS to be able to demonstrate not just cost efficiency in the service we provide, but to continue demonstrating value for money in everything we do for our customers.” RSS, he said, aims to address client needs by providing bespoke solutions, which range from rental and integrated engineered solutions for specific projects. In view of its recent strategic alliance with Red Sea International (RSI), Murray said both companies aim to provide comprehensive solutions for any remote or temporary “off the grid” requirements. He added, “We look forward to leveraging our capabilities to provide clients throughout the GCC region with unparalleled services and products in the modular buildings, power and cooling segments of the rentals market.”
