 Dubai to develop most efficient a/c system in the world


Dubai to develop most efficient a/c system in the world

Strata Manufacturing, a UAE-based Digital Factory pioneer along with Hyperganic, an AI-based engineering platform company with offices in Germany and Singapore, on Tuesday announced a new partnership with German industrial 3D printing company EOS to build the world’s most energy-efficient residential air conditioner system.

The partnership is a result of the UAE’s Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology’s efforts to facilitate industrial collaboration, which is in line with its strategy to create an attractive business environment for local and international investors in the industrial sector, support the growth of national industries, stimulate the adoption of innovation and advanced technology in industrial systems and solutions, and enhance the country’s status as a leading destination for the industries of the future.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is projecting that energy demand from air conditioners will triple by 2050 – which is the equivalent to adding 10 new devices every second for the next 28 years. Air conditioners account for 10% of all global electricity usage, which proves how crucial it is to reduce their energy consumption to satisfy environmental requirements.

The three partners signed the agreement at an official ceremony witnessed by Dr Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, Sarah bint Yousif Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology, and Musabbeh Al Kaabi, CEO of UAE Investments at Mubadala Investment Company.

More Efficient

The agreement was signed by Lin Kayser, CEO and Founder of Hyperganic, Dr Hans Langer, Founder of EOS and a 3D printing pioneer, and Ismail Ali Abdullah, CEO of Strata Manufacturing.

Under the agreement, the partners will combine Hyperganic’s Algorithmic Engineering approach with the industrial metal 3D printing process pioneered by EOS, and Strata’s digital technologies, to produce a residential A/C unit that is up to 10 times more efficient than standard models – and, as such, will be highly coveted in global markets. The companies plan to show project updates at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP28 UAE to be hosted in Expo City Dubai in 2023.

Hyperganic announced they will open their UAE Engineering Office at the beginning of July. Their team, which is set to grow to 20 engineers by the end of 2023, will cooperate with Strata’s team and the EOS team on implementing the project.

On the occasion, Dr Sultan Al Jaber said: “The Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology aims to develop a national industrial ecosystem able to create the kind of partnerships that develop and manufacture innovative local products. This exciting new technology is an ideal example of innovation driving sustainable development and creating a positive economic impact.”

“The partnership demonstrates how the UAE’s manufacturing sector can develop and launch home-grown products that are globally competitive and cater to demand in domestic and international markets. The development of competitive, marketable products is facilitated by an ecosystem of enablers, incentives and unique advantages that will empower the growth of the UAE’s industrial sector and deliver a positive impact on the national economy,” he said.

Great Addition

Al Amiri said: “This partnership represents a great addition to the UAE’s industrial ecosystem and reaffirms MoIAT’s role in attracting global partnerships, especially industrial partnerships between UAE companies and global, innovative companies that deploy advanced technology and 4IR solutions.”

Musabbeh Al Kaabi said: “Mubadala plays a key role in reinforcing the UAE’s energy and sustainability strategy through our portfolio of global investments. This partnership is a testament to the strength of a ‘Made in the Emirates’ brand, through Strata’s emphasis on embracing digital transformation. Our collaboration with Hyperganic and EOS is in line with Strata’s new strategy to expand its business beyond the aerospace sector.”
