THE HVAC&R MARKET IN SAUDI ARABIA

Saudi Arabia is the world’s third largest market for Indoor climate and refrigeration.

Saudi Arabia’s GDP stood at around USD 790.91 billion in 2015 and the country is one of the largest economies in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Thermal insulation in buildings in Saudi Arabia has been made mandatory in 23 cities and towns.

By 2021, the country’s population is estimated to reach 37 million. With 7.1 million households, by 2021, the number of air conditioning units installed in the country is forecasted to reach 3 million.

When it comes to Chillers, there are various methods of energy saving. One of the most popular method involves capacity modulation to closely match with building load line. Scientific data suggests weather impacts cooling load profile. And the peak design condition occur only 1-2% of total number of hours per year.

Although engineers design for best cooling performance under worst weather conditions, but there remains ample room for energy conservation, especially when operating machines at off-design conditions. Let’s therefore explore the application of speed control methodology to different types of Chiller technologies that helps in saving energy bill for the owners, throughout the year.

Case studies that will be shared:

1.) Air-cooled Chillers
2.) Water-cooled Chillers

Air cooled chiller designers in the Middle East face challenges of increasing energy efficiency requirements in high ambient and aggressive Middle East conditions.

The presentation shall cover how the innovative technologies of air cooled chillers deliver superior energy efficiency and reliability in these conditions, considering the requirements of a smaller foot print, low sound and state-of-the-art features. A case study of an innovative air cooled chiller plant versus conventional air cooled chiller plant detailing energy cost savings will be presented.

Ever since the first Montreal Protocol meetings began regulating CFCs in the 1980s, refrigerant rules and acceptability continue to evolve. Since then, there has been an increased focus and accelerated timing on regulations for all fluids that are being used today in the HVAC industry.


Now, the latest Montreal Protocol agreement signed October 16th 2016 focuses on phase-down of HFCs. This persistent churn generates confusion- what's in, what's out, and what's coming? At the same time, the market has been demanding equipment, design strategies and control methods that result in the highest levels of efficiency- will the new fluids hinder or enhance that efficiency?


Albert Haykal will describe the next-generation of fluids, which represent new challenges for providing the highest performing HVAC equipment; besides efficiency they may also challenge the industry's expectations for safety and flammability. This presentation separates fact from fiction, and discusses why, when, and how the industry will face the coming refrigerant transitions.

In the Middle East, 77% of the energy is being consumed in the buildings. 70% of the building energy is being utilized for Cooling. It becomes very important to curtail the Energy and Water Consumption involved in the Cooling process. There are numerous ways to reduce energy consumption including System Optimization, using Innovative Technologies, Increasing System Efficiency and Reliability etc. Water consumption can be reduced by understanding water chemistry, using advanced Material of Construction, Filtration package etc.


Key learning points:

-  The possibility to reduce energy & water consumption in the Cooling Towers
-  Being open to latest technologies
-  The availability of alternate material of construction that helps improve system efficiency

Who should attend?

This Eurovent Seminar briefs you on the status quo concerning the EU ‘F-Gas Regulation’, which was first adopted in 2006 and replaced by a new Regulation in 2015. The ‘F-Gas Regulation’ is a widely known law that controls emissions from fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases), including hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). It has led to wide-ranging implications in Europe, but also in Saudi Arabia and the GCC region.

For example, installers need to be trained for the handling of new types of refrigerants, and safety issues arise as many of the so-far proposed alternatives with a low global warming potential tend to be flammable. While natural refrigerants can certainly provide a good alternative in many areas, they are not always suitable for all climate zones. Furthermore, smaller applications can have difficulties incorporating these until new technologies become market-ready.

Our seminar provides you with a concise update, allowing you to better understand recent developments and technologies incorporating less-polluting refrigerants.

 

Three learning points

1. What is the European regulatory framework for fluorinated gases and what could be its implications on Saudi Arabia?

2. What are the main differences between fluorinated gases and natural refrigerants?

3. What are the main technological challenges to face and what could be the outcomes?

 

Who should attend?

-          Decision makers

-          Environmental authorities 

-          Building contractors

-          Project managers

-          Architects and engineers

-          Energy managers

Driven by stricter legislative demands and a raising awareness on the negative impacts of air pollution, hygienic aspects play an increasingly important role in air handling. Reacting to these demands, Eurovent Certification has launched a three-level hygienic option for its Eurovent Certified Performance (ECP) programme for Air Handling Units (AHUs).

The certification programme is an option for the existing ‘Eurovent Certified Performance’ programme for AHUs. The aim of this option is to guarantee a good air quality of an AHU by checking key hygienic factors, maintenance aspects, materials durability, and component performance.

This seminar is going to provide participants with an in-depth overview on the new programme and the various aspects relating to air handling units and hygiene.


Key learning points:

- Hygienic certification for AHU
- Air Quality from AHU
- Certification by levels

 

Who should attend?

-    Manufacturers

-    Building consultants

-    Contractors

-    Designers

-    Mechanical engineers

Thermal energy storage (through PCM) is capable of storing energy during low cooling demand and releasing large amounts of energy during higher cooling period. With increasing challenges on availability of Energy and Demand management, TES is an efficient solution for peak shaving, limiting power and operational cost savings. TES ensures efficient operation of chilled water plant and lowers the stress on the Electrical grid. Additionally, TES has an invaluable contribution to environment efficiency by reducing the CO2,SO2 NOX emissions. TES finds a very wide range of applications in direct cooling, process cooling and as an efficient backup. TES requires a system design approach. It contributes towards sustainability Goals of a green building by energy optimization of the HVAC System, Ecofriendly site, HVAC system and maintenance savings.

During this seminar, the presenter is going to elaborate in-depth on thermal energy storage and its wide-ranging characteristics.

It makes sound economic sense to create an efficient and invisible door that keeps the cold inside. Air curtains can be even more effective when used in air conditioned or cold storage buildings. Thermozone technology with its precisely adjusted air velocity gives even protection throughout the opening and contributes to a better indoor air quality. Effective air curtains provide an efficient separation with the lowest possible energy consumption, regardless of whether it is the heat or the cold that project engineers want to keep out.

Key learning points:

- How to reduce energy demands by applying highly efficient air curtains to construction projects (ROI)
- How to improve your buildings’ indoor air quality through state-of-the-art air curtain technology (Health &  Safety)
