The award is sponsored by CPI Industry and Climate Control Middle East magazine, judged and evaluated according to their systems and processes, and monitored by third-party auditing firm KPMG. The theme of the Fifth Annual Climate Control Awards, according to CPI Industry’s Editorial Director & Associate Publisher, B. Surendar, was ‘Inter-connected in thought and execution’. According to Surendar, “The philosophy behind the theme is the critical need for the HVACR industry to work as a cohesive unit towards achieving specific goals, be they energy efficiency; resource conservation; reliability; good indoor environmental quality; food safety or ease of installation, operation and maintenance.”

“Tower Tech wishes to thank our outstanding customers for their support and for making Tower Tech a success in the Middle East. Furthermore, we thank our talented sales representatives Trane Middle East & Africa (UAE and Qatar) and Radian Oil & Gas (Saudi Arabia and Bahrain) for representing us with distinction in the GCC region,” said Daniel Coday, Sales Manager – International for Tower Tech.

Mr. Wasfi Hassan, Head of Mechanical Department for Allied Consultants in Dubai, attended the award ceremony and was involved in a 5,000 ton district cooling plant project in Dubai that selected Tower Tech cooling towers in 2013. Mr. Wasfi reminisced over some of the driving factors for choosing this specific tower. “The variable flow distribution system, multiple bottom-mounted fans, and enclosed basin design [is what] first attracted my attention. When operating the towers we were surprised to get performance exceeding the design value in such a humid environment. It was great to see Tower Tech get this deserved award.”

Upon learning about the award, Mr. Syed Younus Ahmed, Director, HVAC Operations and Maintenance at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia said “congratulations to the entire Tower Tech team.” When asked about his experience with operating Tower Tech cooling towers he replied “It’s almost impossible to perceive how truly process and environmentally friendly this cooling tower is.”

Tower Tech CEO Robert C. Brink stated “Our vision is to be the most customer-driven cooling tower company in the world – the standard by which all other cooling tower companies are measured. We thank CPI, Climate Control Middle East magazine, our amazing customers throughout the GCC region, and our GCC factory certified representatives Trane Middle East & Africa and Radian Oil & Gas.”

Mr. Brink added “With the recent introduction of our new TTXR line, Tower Tech offers even greater performance at reduced installed fan power and footprint. The TTXR is more affordable for mid and large sized projects with the same unique counterflow design solutions. Tower Tech continues to raise the standard for a better customer cooling tower experience.”

Rental Cooling Tower

Rental cooling tower options began appearing in the 1980’s with portable cooling towers and then modular cooling towers in the 1990’s. Today there is a booming rental cooling tower industry worldwide. Some companies choose a rental cooling tower because the need for additional cool water is not permanent and they are able to fund the project from their operational budget instead of capital budget.

Today many power plants are faced with increased pressure to preserve minimum water temperatures from the lake or river they use for cool water due to environmental impact of the water life. During the hot summer months these return water temperature restrictions can significantly reduce the amount of energy a plant can produce. A rental cooling tower helps the power plant to keep the water temperature below the required level so they can operate at full capacity all summer long. Other users of cooling towers can also benefit from augmented cool water during the summer months to positively impact their process.

Other applications of rental cooling towers are to ensure your HVAC or industrial process facility has the cool water it needs during a retrofit, repair or replacement of an existing cooling tower. Since a cooling tower operates much like the radiator on a car, when there is no cool water, there is no process. A rental cooling tower can truly save millions of dollars in lost revenue from a plant shut down.

Whether you are facing temporary incremental heat load, a cooling tower retrofit, planned maintenance, or even an emergency shut down, being familiar with what rental cooling tower options exist can be a life saver in the event of an emergency.
