Daikin, the leader in manufacturing and production of cooling and heating solutions, announced that the DAHU range air handling units manufactured in Daikin Jebel Ali Factory are now Eurovent certified. Earlier in December 2014, Daikin Middle East & Africa had started the new air handling unit factory in Jebel Ali to serve both local and regional markets from GCC, Middle East & Africa.
“The basis for the unit design follows the Professional Air Handling Unit design in our factory in Milan, Italy. While following the design and processes from our factory in Italy, we had access to a wide range of options and best practices in the construction of the units providing our customers with products that have the highest quality. With the Middle East becoming more concerned with energy efficiency, selecting the Professional series as our preferred product gives our customers access to all the energy efficient features available to Eurovent certified units with a fan array” said Kilian Kelly, Regional Business Director of Air Side products in Daikin MEA.
He added: “Locating the factory in Jebel Ali has also reduced our lead times, providing our customers with a better service and response time to not only deliver quickly and on time but also provide any additional backup or aftersales services they should wish to avail of.”
The factory has gone through many metamorphoses in the last 11 months. The first major step was moving into a new larger facility in April 2015 providing more flexibility and the ability to manufacture machines worth more than $1m per month. Approximately, a month later the ISO 9001 Certification procedure was completed, which is a prerequisite for the Eurovent Certification.
The factory has also invested in its own testing equipment, allowing the demonstration of compliance to the EN1886 standard for volumetric testing, leakage testing, and mechanical strength testing to their customers. Daikin has been privileged with some of the projects the company has had the opportunity to produce. The highest specification has been for the Oil and Gas sector.
