Airkool was engaged late 2014 to deliver the full mechanical package to Rofin Sinar which included air conditioning, ventilation & chilled water system.
After several months of planning, design and drawing changes we started on site, Airkool have designed a full mechanical package for Rofin in the way that the heat is recovered from their production test facility via a heat exchanger and utilised to heat the incoming fresh air for the offices also the excess heat not required is forced through a dry cooler before finally requiring chilled water a later stage.
The energy and financial savings played a big part in securing the project.
The customer was that pleased with the way Airkool approached the installation and the customer service we provided that we were awarded extra plumbing and electrical works in the factory as the client occupied each individual test facility.
Rofin-Sinar UK Ltd is a world leading specialist in the design and manufacture of laser sources for industrial applications. Technological advancement, attention to detail and cost-effectiveness are key drivers for our business and we look for similar traits in the partners we choose to deal with. We have worked with Airkool for a number of years servicing our previous installations so when Rofin relocated to a new larger custom-built facility, it was an easy decision to invite Airkool to contribute to the project.
Airkool offers a full design and installation service providing detailed CAD drawings and layouts. Their solution incorporated environmentally friendly options such as utilising the heat generated from the lasers to provide ‘free-heating’ during colder months and using the external ambient temperature to provide ‘free-cooling’ of our process water. Following a competitive tender, Airkool was selected to install air-conditioning, heating, fresh air ventilation and a modular chilled water system that flexes to meet required demand; all customised and specific to our application and requirement.
We were very happy with the finished solution. The support and professionalism during the project was first class and the aftercare service and responsiveness also impressed. Airkool is not your average contractor offering a full complete package and a level of service that we have come to expect. We continue to develop our new facility and have recently ordered an additional system through Airkool for the first-floor expansion area where a new product line will be installed in the coming months. We look forward to another successful partnership with our provider of choice.
