Sipos Aktorik’s credentials in district cooling actuator installations has secured wide ranging contracts in the UAE. Applications include Dubai Metro Project, the Yas Island Project, the Al Raha Beach development and Zayed Military City.

Installations for the company’s standard and modulating actuators incorporate Sipos’ variable speed products and Profibus capability. Illustrating the scale of Sipos’ work in the UAE, the Zayed installation comprises seven schemes in total to provide a contracted 90,000tns of cooling across the military complex. Each scheme increases the efficiency of the cooling for the complex and provides a reduction of 60% in power generated in the grid.

The Yas Island scheme is predominantly residential but also includes hotels, a water park, a racetrack and golf course. Once completed, Yas Island will have nine district cooling plants.
