The contract, due to commence in coming months, will see the replacement of the existing handling unit plants with new specified equipment which serves the entire hospital. TTC will be installing Huntair brand AHUs which are designed specifically for the ventilation of hospitals and healthcare premises where maintaining air quality is critical, according to a press release.
Huntair’s patented Fanwall Technology air handling units are arguably the first true innovation in the air handling equipment industry in years. Based on replacing large fans with a modular array of smaller fans, Fanwall Technology allows for major improvements in footprint, reliability, energy efficiency, sound attenuation, vibration, operating costs, and is also ideal for retrofit applications.
Faisal Rawahi, senior engineer at SQUH said, “We are proud to use AHUs with Fanwall Technology in SQUH premises which are provided by TTC. This technology has salient features which convinced us. Features such as energy efficiency, redundancy, size reduction (20–30 per cent), minimum maintenance cost as there are no belts and pulleys, less vibration and noise. As many as ten units have been replaced and 16 units will be delivered soon. TTC have a very good erection and back up teams which are very important factors to be considered.”
Ibrahim al Sulaimi, general manager at TTC, said, “We have been working with SQUH for more than five years now and our staff know the site and the project team very well. We are incredibly proud to be awarded this important contract and to have earned the trust which has enabled us to do so. We are sure to execute this project in a timely manner as we have done in the past and we are grateful to the SQUH project team and the management to give us this opportunity again.”
