Armstrong Fluid Technology, manufacturer of intelligent fluid-flow and control solutions, has received the award for ‘Smart Project of the Year 2023’ at the eighth edition of RetrofitTech Middle East and North Africa (MENA) summit.
The awards ceremony celebrates key players in the energy efficiency, sustainability and retrofitting sectors in the MENA region.
Armstrong Fluid Technology was recognised for its smart solutions that have amplified energy efficiency within the Park Hyatt hotel in Doha. By combining quality hardware with artificial intelligence (AI) and IoT capabilities, Armstrong Fluid Technology’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment retrofit generated outstanding energy savings of US$31,902 in a year.
The company’s design envelope variable speed pumps, parallel sensorless pump control technology and pump manager remote monitoring software were installed to optimise HVAC performance within the hotel. The combination of technologies improved occupant comfort and safety, as well as boosted system efficiency by 75%.
Kevin Laidler, its sales director for MENA said: “We are honoured to be recognised for our contributions and hope to inspire other industry leaders to leverage their own expertise to make a positive impact on the planet.”
