The summer months’ harsh climate continues to drive demand for cost-effective solutions, especially with regard to the rental of HVAC equipment. This was confirmed by Russel Moxham, Area General Manager – Gulf, Rental Solutions and Services (RSS), who said that the summer period is the busiest for the company’s cooling division. “Whether it be for short-term rentals to support temperature control in the construction industry or long-term requirements to boost District Cooling facilities,” he said, “demand for our solutions and services is at its peak during Q2 and Q3.”
Sharing his insight on further trends in the region, Moxham added that there is also a spike in demand for wild air cooling during the summer months. “When a project is coming into fit out or final commissioning and the handover of the HVAC system,” he said, “you need a temperature- controlled environment to keep the air circulating, reduce humidity and avoid damage to the building, for example, doors being warped.” Moxham emphasised that this is also vital to ensure that employees are working in a safe and comfortable environment.
Moxham emphasised that during this time the market is especially cost-conscious, which, he said, prompted the company to tailor and customise its solutions according to the needs of the clients. “We also carry out regular maintenance and monitoring to ensure that the customer is using the load required for that project throughout the contracted period,” he said. “Our engineers are on hand to reduce or increase this as needed, always focusing on achieving results for our customers.”
