Klima-Therm has been appointed UK distributor for Gree centrifugal chillers and World Energy absorption chillers
According to the company, star products in the Gree range are its variable speed centrifugal chiller and photovoltaic (PV) powered inverter chiller.
In addition to producing renewable electricity to drive the cooling system, the PV chiller can feed power directly into the grid, enabling the end user to benefit from electricity feed-in tariff.
World Energy absorption systems are used in the food manufacturing, and the chemical, plastic, water and waste and oil and gas industries, where large amounts of heat are produced as a by-product and there is a simultaneous requirement for cooling.
Absorption machines can also be used as heat pumps, shifting and amplifying heat output, often making the original process more efficient.
Roberto Mallozzi, managing director of Klima-Therm, says: “We are delighted to have signed this agreement with World Energy and very pleased that its outstanding absorption technology is now part of the Klima-Therm offering.
“Harnessing waste heat in place of primary energy, such as electricity or gas, can deliver dramatic cost savings for end users, not to mention the environmental benefits. World Energy has been active in the field for many years and is absolutely at the forefront of technology. Its reputation for excellent design and reliability is well deserved.”
Mr Mallozzi added: “We are delighted to have secured the distribution agreement with Gree. Having visited a number of their factories and headquarters in China, the quality and scale of the company is beyond impressive, it is breath-taking. After two decades of rapid growth, one in three residential air conditioning units in the world is now manufactured by Gree, an astonishing feat. Our goal is to make them as famous in the UK’s commercial sector.”
“Although the Gree name is only just becoming established in the UK, the company acts as OEM for some of the world’s best known air conditioning brands. Visiting their vast production plants is like walking through a Hall of Fame, as branded equipment bearing the industry’s top names rolls off the production lines alongside Gree’s own systems.
Gree spent over US$630milion on research and development in 2013 alone, and holds CE, UL and TUV certification.
