UK air conditioning firm seals Riyadh Metro supply deal
High-tech manufacturer Airedale International Air Conditioning has been awarded a $1.27 million export order to supply specialized air-conditioning units for Riyadh Metro, the UK-based company said in a statement.
The Airedale ‘EasiCool’ units for the metro are designed for precision applications and will be used to cool the server rooms incorporated in the new metro stations currently under construction, said the statement.
"Exports now make up around 30 percent of our sales at Airedale and we have been growing our presence in the Middle East over the last few years, after establishing an office in Dubai in 2014," Asim Ansari, export sales manager, said.
"This has allowed us to strengthen partnerships in the region, in this case with Saudi Temco, Setra and the BACS Consortium, which are heavily involved with the design and construction of the project," he added.
