VANCOUVER, Dec. 1 /CNW/ - Smartcool Systems Inc. is pleased to report that the company has signed an exclusive agreement with the largest chiller services specialist in the Middle East to distribute Smartcool's Energy Savings Module(TM) (ESM(TM)) in the U.A.E. and Bahrain. In addition U.S. Chiller Services will also market Smartcool's ECO3(TM) on a non-exclusive basis. As well as having offices in Dubai, U.A.E. and Manama in the Kingdom of Bahrain, U.S. Chiller Services also has locations in California and Florida.
As part of its due diligence process, U.S. Chillers installed the Energy Savings Module(TM) (ESM(TM)) on a large tonnage centrifugal chiller at a location, managed by the Palm District Cooling Company, situated in Dubai. The test which initiated in July 2009 required 14 days of operation; whereby readings were taken prior to activation of Smartcool's ESM(TM). Readings were then recorded for a 14 day period with the ESM(TM) activated. To further verify testing results, these readings were compared to a 14 day period whereby readings were recorded with the ESM(TM) turned on and off on alternate days. The results from the testing period indicated energy savings of 13.16% when comparing the 14 days on and off period and 16.63% energy savings for the alternate day period. On average, the ESM(TM) provided savings of 2,925 kWh per day, an average savings of 14.89%. This equates to approximately US$95,000 per annum on this single chiller application.
"The test was conducted throughout real operational conditions during 42 days under the peak Dubai summer period when mid-day temperatures can reach 50 degrees centigrade, yet Smartcool's technology provided very impressive results," stated Dan Mizesko, President of US Chiller Services. "Not only did the ESM(TM) save substantial kWh input power to the chiller, it was also able to slightly improve the chiller's kW per ton efficiency. We were also able to confirm that the technology can be integrated to multiple chillers allowing chillers to share the common load equally and save energy equally. Our firm conclusion is the Smartcool technology is a powerful energy saving technology on single or multiple chiller installations."
"We are very pleased to be working with U.S. Chiller Services," said George Burnes, President and CEO of Smartcool Systems Inc. "U.S. Chiller has an award winning reputation and we feel very comfortable that our energy savings technology will be represented to a wide array of clients in a very important market place for our company. The test has only endorsed what we at Smartcool already know, and that is that we have a technology that can provide energy reduction resulting in significant cost savings."
