Kuwait, 6 September 2023: WEG has announced that it has won a contract to supply a fleet of W22 motors to upgrade the air handling units at the Al Adan Hospital, the main public general hospital in Al Ahmadi Governorate, Kuwait. Making the announcement through a Press release, WEG said it supplied W22 motors for the project, starting from 1.5KW to 75KW, and the motors are designed to offer not only lower energy consumption but lower noise and vibration, higher reliability, easier maintenance and lower cost of ownership. The company further said the motor frame is designed from cast iron to provide high levels of mechanical strength to cater for the most critical applications — such as HVAC systems.
With tough commercial targets and delivery requirements, the release said WEG’s Middle East branch was up to the challenge of supplying motors in the hospital’s air conditioning units. The release further said these units depended on SKM fans and chiller units fitted with WEG motors.
Anil Kumar, Development Sales Manager-UAE, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar, WEG, said: “WEG is a well-respected industrial equipment supplier and solutions provider across the entire Middle East region. Moreover, in Kuwait, we’re mainly known for our work in the oil and gas sector, and we’re proud to continue expanding our footprint in the HVAC sector through high-profile projects such as this one.”
Quality of product, technical support and after-sales support, he said, were key to winning this prestigious project. Furthermore, Kumar said WEG worked closely with SKM Air Conditioning LLC and the contractor during the tender stage to ensure all technical details were correct and met the customer specifications. The system, he added, needed to be robust, reliable and powerful enough to heat and cool the hospital without needlessly wasting energy. We certainly achieved this through the upgrade project.
WEG also said the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) units play a significant role in ensuring every space in the clinical and non-clinical departments in the hospital is the correct temperature and is ventilated in line with safety guidelines. WEG further said this is essential to ensure the most vulnerable patients are protected from airborne illnesses and that temperatures around the building are maintained to guarantee that sensitive medical equipment does not malfunction.
