Veolia unveils latest district cooling technology
French firm showcases solutions at Riyadh event from October 12-13.
Veolia Water Technologies Saudi Arabia is showcasing its latest technology at the District Cooling Arabia Summit taking place in Riyadh.
During the two-day summit which kicked off today, Veolia will leverage its 160-year track record of delivering water treatment, services and solutions worldwide, and 35 years in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The France-based company operates over 40 districts cooling networks worldwide and in the Middle East builds or operates plants for a combined cooling capacity of around 250,000 Refrigeration Tonnes (RT) (875 MWc).
As Saudi Arabia undergoes massive demographic and economic growth with the population increasing by around 4% every year, Veolia's role is critical in the government’s vast program to rehabilitate and develop the country’s water and wastewater system infrastructure, and improve operating practices, particularly in the key cities.
Badr Ghawji, MD of Veolia Water Technologies Saudi Arabia, said: “Veolia has the most water-related technologies available anywhere, and we are experts at combining them to create tailor-made solutions helping cities and industries manage, optimize and recycle water.
“In a country where water resources are scarce such as Saudi Arabia, our solutions allow to optimize processes, reduce water footprint and generate considerable savings in energy and chemical consumption, helping to sustain economic development.”
Veolia Water Technologies considers the Riyadh show to be an opportune time for it to launch the latest innovative technologies, chemical solutions portfolio for district cooling systems, notably the much awaited “smart automatic controlling systems — the Aquavista 5C."
