We continue to achieve great results in Hong Kong with the adoption of COOLNOMIX® to deliver unrivalled energy and cost savings on air-conditioners – our average energy and cost savings on air-conditioners is 40%!
Hutchison Global Communications (HGC, www.hgc.com.hk), a leading fixed-line telecommunications company and part of the Hutchison Whampoa Group (www.hutchison-whampoa.com), recently contracted with us to deploy 200 x COOLNOMIX® AC-01® on air-conditioners serving mission-critical needs in their network equipment sites in Telecommunications & Broadcast Equipment (TBE) rooms at the delivery edge of their Hong Kong network.
HGC were convinced of the value of doing this after comprehensive tests at one of these sites demonstrated energy and cost savings in excess of 25%. This percentage saving, lower than our average achievement of 40%, reflects the challenging environment found in these TBE rooms with very heavy heat loads generated by the telecommunications equipment. Nevertheless, since these sites run 24/7, all year round, HGC will still enjoy an unbeatable payback on investment of less than 12 months.
Phase 1 of the rollout, about one third of the total, has already been completed with the next two phases to be completed by the end of August 2014.
